Some 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. You can learn all 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 know enough to enroll in this workshop. Total beginners can request a free pamphlet by sending SASE to Innovative Keyboard Instruction, 2841 S. Southwind Drive, Gilbert, AZ 85295. SUPPLIES: Materials fee of $28 will be collected in class by instructor for workbook and 60 minute practice CD. Must be at least 18 years old.
