Beginner Guitar

Come join a class where you can have fun while learning to play a guitar. All that’s needed is a guitar and the same desire you’ve always had. Reading music is a skill not needed. We will progress at a pace that all can accomplish and understand. I am self- taught and believe that with a little push start, everyone can make music and reach the objective to be a guitar player. 1st class guitar required. 2nd class Electronic tuner and Capo needed. Any questions, feel free to contact me at perinator@myfairpoint.net.

Just Once Piano for Busy People

Some music teachers may not want you to know this, but you don’t need years of weekly lessons to learn piano.  In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give yourself years of musical enjoyment.  How do we do it?  While regular piano teachers teach note reading, piano professionals use chords.  You can learn all the chords you’ll need to play any song in this one session.  Any song.  Any style.  Any key.  If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop.  Topics include: how chords work in a song, how to get more out of sheet music by reading less of it, how to form the three main types of chords, how to handle different keys and time signatures, how to avoid “counting”, and how to simplify over 12,000 complex chords.  Total beginners can print out a free pamphlet on the treble clef by going online to this link http://justonceclasses.com/info/images/fastpresence/class_notes_for_piano.pdf  

Fee includes cost of book.
