Learn To Play The Piano With Scott "The Piano Guy" Houston

In Scott Houston’s Piano In A Flash online lessons, he’ll teach you how to play AND enjoy the piano in no time at all, whether you’re a little rusty or have never touched a piano before!  Scroll to learn about Scott’s 3 Secrets to teaching piano and to check out the Syllabus for Course 1.  

 

Scroll down for the three secrets to playing piano like a pro…

"Hello! Scott Houston here - you might know me as "The Piano Guy" - These are the 3 secrets i'll use to get YOU having FUN playing the piano:"

1: Put away the classical sheet music and use what the pros do

Learn to use what pros like studio session players use. Not only will you sound a lot better, but it takes about 90% of the difficulty of reading standard sheet music and throws it right out the window. Great, huh?

2: Just a couple of chords will open up HUNDREDS of songs

Throw memorizing dozens and dozens of chords out the door! Once you’ve learned a few standard chords, you’ll be able to enjoy playing along to hundreds of popular tunes quickly and easily. Talk about bang for your buck!

3: DO NOT use the rules and techniques of traditional classical piano to guide you in playing all other non-classical styles.

Spending grueling hours working on note-reading, fingering exercises, etc.  are NOT helpful when you are just getting started playing in non-classical piano styles. What IS important is learning songs that you know and enjoy, which will keep you energized, motivated, and enjoying your practice.
