PRLog - Nov. 7, 2012 - SAN DIEGO -- New Age music ... it's seen better days. But now it's making a comeback, thanks in no small part to piano teacher Edward Weiss.
Weiss owns and operates a website that teaches beginning adults how to improvise their own piano music in the New Age style. And the free piano lesson he gives away at his site titled 'Forest Interlude' promises to show how it's done.
Mr. Weiss remarks...
"One of the things I like to do is capture the moods of nature in music. Visual artists have been doing this for the longest time. And there was a period in classcial music when impressionism was all the rage. New Age piano is similar to this. Just a few chords and students are able to quickly capture a mood and turn it into an improvisation or composition of their own."
Here's what this 'new age' piano teacher says about his online course:
"New Age piano is a very popular style of music. Millions around the world enjoy the beauty and relaxing effects it has to offer. But there was nothing as far as instruction goes - either online or off. I created a course where anyone who enjoys this style can go and learn how to play it without learning how to read music."
Weiss also adds:
“Most piano students assume they must learn how to read music before they attempt anything creative. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I encourage students to speak the language of music first through chords before learning how to read it.”
