      Thanks, Scott. I really like your tips. I am SO very slow with music but try really hard. I have a Lowry’s but taught myself to use chords. Rhythm is really hard but it’s getting better. My talent is painting on canvas so just about all my money goes into supplies. I tell you this because I just can’t do your whole course but these simple tips keeps me interested in moving forward, just would like to see a more affordable alternative–how about a portrait for a few more lessons? 😀 Judy

        Ha! Judy don’t forget that even though the entire method consists of 6 courses, you can however purchase one course at a time, the entire Method (courses 1-6) or the first 2 courses, 1&2, etc. The more you purchase at one time, the cheaper they are per course. You can find those options at pianoinaflash.com/pricing (and then scrolling down the page…)

        Hope that helps. 🙂

    You make it so much fun… I am an 81 year old woman and played piano not the greatest but could read sheet music. I have finally decided after at least fifty years of not touching my piano ( Just keep the dust off) I would give it a try again and thanks to you it’s been an interesting journey. What beginner viedos do you have to learn boogie woogie and blues music.. I need very easy…

    Hi Scott: I enjoyed the video. You know we’re all out here,each wanting to play piano. I tried to get into it more than 10 years ago, and always followed you with your samples. Somehow, other activities seemed to override my good intentions. In example, I just had my computer installed in a home in Saskatoon, (Saskatchewan) because I was invited to use some unused space for practicing guitar Mandolin and voice, all to be ready for our next year’s Canadian 150th year celebration, I’m preparing for. I did not bring my keyboard; it’s still in Kelowna, and I won’t be back there until Christmastime.

    I’ll tell you what Scott, I will bring the keyboard back with me, and give equal time with Mando and guitar and voice. I’ll follow your videos, and keep you informed of my progress. I expect there’ll be a cost, and if it’s not too high, I;ll go for it…..Doug.

    Hi Scott:

    I’ll go for it, but not until the New Year. I’ll bring the keyboard with me from Kelowna.

    As always Scott you made this little exercise fun and interesting. It’s a great start to improv. All your videos are the best! Learning piano is now FUN and not arduous like when I was taking lessons from a great lady but,, who taught in the classical way. Thankyou.
