Would you daydream with me for a moment? It’s a daydream I used to dream often back when I was taking piano lessons:
You are sitting at the piano surrounded by your family and friends,
playing in a full, lush, style with chords galore and runs and fills flowing
up and down all over the keyboard. Can you see that in your mind’s eye?
I’ve got great news for you!
It doesn’t have to be a dream! You can learn to play like that just like I did. It’s not so much a matter of talent as it is of knowing what to do and how to do it. And that knowledge can be acquired.
I’m going to show you over ONE HUNDRED ways to make your piano playing come to life. I am going to show you IN PRINT (in the big 8 1/2” by 11” book that comes with the course) and also in SOUND (in the TWO cassette tapes that come with the course) plus you will SEE and HEAR each technique as you watch the fantastic 2-hour video on arranging music on the piano! On it I will carefully demonstrate each technique so you can hear how it sounds as well as SEE what it looks like — you will watch my hands as I play each chord, each run, each style, each technique — in close-ups and in slow motion — so you can understand clearly how you can play it too.
Would you like to be able to createMOODS at the keyboard? To ignite the emotions of the listener? To EXCITE the listener with exhilarating, arousing, animated music? To create a sense of nostalgia, longing, or sadness with poignant, bittersweet chords & progressions?
Of play with such zest and gusto that the listener just can’t sit still? Or maybe play with that splendid, royal, radiant touch that makes people stiffen their backbones and look at reality boldly “Winston Churchill” music, as someone has called it.
You’ll find all of these feelings created through the use of techniques such as…
