Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People
Secrets your piano teacher never told you are revealed in this 3-hour workshop.

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 will 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.
