Thanks for Making my New Book #1 on Amazon!

Yes ... you helped make my book #1 for the piano category on Amazon. Amazon calculates book sales and refreshes the results every hour. I'm not #1 right now, but for a while there, I had the #1 spot in 3 categories!
So ... thank you! Here's a new press release about the book and yours truly!
SAN DIEGO, CA, May 03, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Music fans take note: Edward Weiss has just completed his extensive new book on creating, composing and playing "New Age" piano compositions.

A distillation of Ed's 20 years as an instructor and composer, "Free to Be Creative at the Piano" promises to take even novice players step by step through the process of creating music from scratch. In fact, in his book, Edward even effectively teaches those of us who've never touched a keyboard in our lives.

As the author explains:

"I wanted to let people know playing the piano is not some deep, dark secret skill only obtained through years of tedious practice. Anyone with a desire to play can easily master the basic chords, and move on to actually creating and composing their own musical scores.

"Mr. Weiss covers the entire spectrum of learning to play New Age Music, from composing your first musical piece to musical improvisation to tips on performing in front of others - and everything in-between.

About the only thing that doesn't come with this book is an actual keyboard.

So Why New Age Music?

What many people don't realize is that New Age piano is just a style of music. It has nothing to do with philosophy. It has nothing to do with religion. It's just a style of music like zydeco or polka. It was given this name because clueless record executives didn't know how to classify these relatively modern sounds. So the name "New Age" stuck.

Edward adds:

"For the last 10 years, I've been helping my students learn piano and play New Age style music through my website: Piano Lessons by Quiescence Music. Literally thousands of people who thought playing music was something they could never achieve have now mastered all the skills necessary to fulfill their musical dreams. All that knowledge and the techniques I use are finally available in one convenient, comprehensive book.

"If you love New Age Music, and have always wished you too could be among the musical elite composing this hauntingly beautiful style, stop wishing and get Edward's new book. In this case - dreams really do come true.
