Instant Piano
(For Hopelessly Busy People)

If you yearn to experience the joy of playing piano, but you don’t want years of weekly lessons, this short course is for you. In just a few hours you can learn enough secrets of the trade to make piano playing a part of your life.

How is it done? Typical piano lessons teach you note reading, but piano professionals use chords. You will learn all the chords needed to play any pop song in this one session: any song. any style, any key. And you’ll get a healthy dose of insider secrets.

If you already know your way around a keyboard a little, you know enough to enroll in this workshop.

Here’s Craig’s upcoming schedule for Instant Piano (For Hopelessly Busy People). Call the number listed for exact times, costs, and registration information.

How to Play Piano by Ear

What All Pro Musicians Know but Won't Tell You

Despite what you may have heard to the contrary, anyone can learn to play by ear. This workshop shows you the inside secrets professional piano players use (but never reveal).

You’ll learn how to pick tunes right out of your head. You’ll learn how to get songs off the radio (think of the money you’ll save in sheet music). You’ll even learn how to transpose. This workshop goes beyond mere “ear training.” You’ll get information found nowhere else, and you’ll be picking out tunes by ear — with both hands — from the very first day.

Open to all musicians (not just piano players) who have a basic understanding of chord theory. Beginners should take Instant Piano as a prerequisite.

For those who already play traditional piano this workshop sets the stage for learning many different styles including rock, gospel, jazz, boogie-woogie, and improvising techniques. Learn the secrets of the blues’ unique scale, form, rhythm, and improvisation. And free yourself from sheet music. No prerequisite.
