DVD Instruction

Millions have taken piano lessons and quit! The culprit is rigid teaching methods that make students wait months, even years, before they truly make music. With the no-technical teachings of Piano for Quitters you'll make music in minutes! Offering clear demonstrations, Mark Almond's holistic approach is based on chords and harmony---not reading notes. These lessons are designed for beginning students as well as those who would like to be less dependent on note reading. The program provides step by step musical material that allows the vast majority of learners to succeed (especially the students who really pay attention - - and keep going). Because the very heart of music theory is broken down to non-technical terms - - any parent can teach their own children! Approximately 90 minutes.
