Every good boy does fine? Not necessarily. Yes, that has been the mantra of the piano education industry for as long as anyone can remember. We've all been beaten over the head with other sayings like, "it takes years to learn piano", or "you have to practice an hour a day". If this sounds familiar, you'll be happy to hear that these old sayings turn out to not be so true anymore.
Lucas Music has just launched PianoIn8Weeks.com, an online, self-guided course that teaches you all of the fundamentals of piano in as little as 8 weeks. Based on over 20 years of teaching experience, Brian Lucas, the teacher behind the series, has created what he calls the Target Method, a refreshingly new way to teach music that is more closely aligned with how professionals actually play. No good boys, no years of memorization. Each video lesson teaches one big musical concept and takes a student an average of a week to complete.
The course uses multiple camera angles and graphics to fully explain each concept. Included in each video is a section on how to practice (even if you only have limited time), a test to make sure you're on track, and a fun play-along to explore your creative self. All of this combines to create a fun learning environment, far from the piano lessons of the past.
In the vast world of monthly subscriptions and contracts, perhaps the best feature of the course is that at PianoIn8Weeks.com you pay as you go. There is never a commitment or minimum to buy. Work on each lesson as long as you'd like, and you can stop when you want.
For anyone who has always wanted to learn piano and thought it was too hard or too expensive or requires a strict private teacher, you owe it to yourself to check out http://www.pianoin8weeks.com and see how easy it can truly be.
