Here’s what this pianist and composer has to say about it:
“December Peace is a piano lesson I created to show how a composition is built up using sections. By working in small phrases, students are able to complete sections quickly and then learn how to use repetition and contrast to compose a complete piece of music.”
The online piano course Weiss runs at his website has been going strong for over 15 years now and offers a different approach than what most piano students are used to.
“I teach piano a lot like an art teacher might approach a lesson. You have a title - something like ‘Hidden Meadow’ for example. You also have clear cut instruction on how to create it. I’ve always admired art instruction books because they spell everything out in a very clear way. It’s all ‘step-by-step’
