Back by popular demand at Northeast Alabama Community College, a one-day workshop entitled "Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People." This 3-hour workshop will be Tuesday, March 21, 2017 beginning at 5 pm until 8 pm at the NACC campus. The workshop is intended for ages 15 and up. To ensure a seat please register by March 17, 2017. Seating is limited.
If you yearn to experience the joy of playing piano, but you don't want years of weekly lessons, this short course is for you. In just one enjoyable evening, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to make piano playing a part of your talents, learning chords, not notes. You'll learn all the chords needed to play any song, any style, in any key.
"Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People", instructor Mike McMillan, teaches the chord approach to playing, which is preferred by many adults. Instead of reading all the notes the traditional way, it teaches you to play by looking at the chord symbols used in the most popular music today. This is literally a musically correct but "shorthand" way of playing that produces instant success in playing popular songs with both hands, even with total beginners. A roomful of people can be taught with just one piano in the room. Each student has a replica keyboard at his or her seat, and then takes home a 32-page book and
68-minute practice CD with which a technique can be perfected at the participant’s leisure.
Cost of the class is $60, payable to NACC. Fees are due with registration. The instructor will collect $25 in class for a book and CD. If you cannot read music notes, send a self-addressed stamped envelope for a FREE pamphlet to Music Masters, 120 Summer Ln, Covington, GA 30016. Class location is given with registration.
