"I've been writing about what I do for over 10 years now trying to get attention and some publicity for the beautiful style of piano playing known as New Age. It's a labor of love really as I enjoy communicating about how to easily improvise and compose one's own music. When I noticed over 8000 people have subscribed to my newsletter, it humbled me."
The 'New Age' piano playing style Weiss talks about has been around since the early 1980's and peaked soon thereafter. But according to Weiss, the style is making a strong comeback.
Here's what this New Age piano teacher has to say about the growing popularity of this eclectic style:
"A lot of people have become disillusioned by the classical approach to playing piano. Sure, you'll learn how to play the piano with sensitivity and control, but you won't be able to just sit down at the piano and play off the top of your head. Something many adults would love to be able to do, but can't due to fear of trying or lack of instruction on the topic."
Weiss is currently offering a free piano lesson titled 'Summer Moring' at his Yahoo Group that promises to teach beginning adults how to improvise from scratch. A free report is also offered at http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/
