When most people think of taking piano lessons, the names Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart spring to mind. But not anymore. At least that’s according to Edward Weiss.
Weiss is a pianist, composer, and webmaster of NewAgePianoLessons.com - an online site that teaches, you guessed it, New Age piano.
When asked why he teaches piano in this style, Weiss responds:
“It’s a very freeing style. You don’t have to read music. You don’t have to spend years playing the ’masters.’ The whole idea is to just learn a few chords and then jump in and improvise. Something I’ve always wanted to do and now that I can, I enjoy teaching others how to do it.”
The course Weiss teaches now has over 1000 members and keeps growing at a steady pace. Students receive over 100 New Age piano lessons when signing up and also receive a free workbook.
When asked why he thinks so many people want to learn this style of piano playing now, Weiss says:
“I think people just get tired of playing other people’s music - no matter how good. They want to create on their own and the New Age style helps them do just that.”
Weiss is currently offering a free piano lesson and book at his website http://www.NewAgePianoLessons.com
