In 1982 a musician in Northern California figured out a way to teach a classroom full of adults how to play piano in a single four hour session. He taught this class at a local university and within a year was presenting his workshop at 12 California State University locations.
To date he has presented his workshop in colleges and universities throughout the country, on both coasts, the Midwest, and the Hawaiian Islands. To date he has taught nearly 25,000 people to play the piano. No one else can say that.
In the early 1990′s he began teaching his method to other piano teachers who have gone on to teach another 100,000 plus students nationwide.
In summer of 2011, he presented his first Piano Retreat. Twenty students came from four different states to attend this weekend of classes. The difference between the One Day Piano Workshop and the weekend long Piano Retreat is that in the Retreat the students get to reconnect with Robert Laughlin, the founder of this method, and receive hands-on training and personal instruction in a quiet, tranquil setting, surrounded by the beauties of nature and other piano students.
