Piano InstructorSome music teachers may not want you to know this, but you don't need years of weekly lessons to learn piano. In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give you years of musical enjoyment. How do we do it? While regular piano teachers teach note reading, piano professionals use chords. And you can learn all the chords you'll need to play any song in this one session. Any song. Any style. Any key. If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop.

Topics Include:

  • How chords work in a song
  • How to get more out of sheet music by reading less of it
  • How to form the three main types of chords
  • How to handle different keys and time signatures
  • How to avoid "counting"
  • How to simplify over 12,000 complex chords
