Free Piano Workshop: Transforming the Way You Play Songs on the Piano

Transforming the Way You Play Songs on the Piano Unlocks the Secrets to Creating Personalized Piano Arrangements of Show Tunes and Standards

Ed Mascari-Workshop Leader & Studio Director
PRLog - May 2, 2013 - HUDSON, Mass. -- One hour group workshop with seasoned professional musician and educator reveals the best way for amateur pianists with a minimum of training to play the music they love their way.

Hudson, MA – Ed Mascari will lead a free workshop: Transforming the Way You Play Songs for adults and adolescents on Saturday morning, May 11th at the Ed Mascari Piano Studio, 14 Main St, Suite 4, Hudson, MA 01749 at 11:00 AM.

What a joy it is to be able to play songs on the piano with the freedom that seems only possible for professionals! This dream can become a reality, freeing pianists from following the written notes literally on the sheet music, says Ed Mascari, a piano teacher who has been teaching adults and adolescents for 35 years how to personalize their piano playing. Mascari’s free workshop, Transforming the Way You Play Songs http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeid..., offers an introduction to the chord concept, how it applies to specific songs and feedback on performances that help participants get started with their own system for playing songs with their own piano arrangements.

“Unlike other programs that require many scales and exercises or complex theoretical materials, Transforming the Way You Play Songs, provides basic arranging models that will work with a wide variety of songs even for someone who has had a minimum of two years of piano lessons”, says Ed Mascari, a professional musician who developed his “hands on” approach during his forty years of performing as a solo jazz pianist, keyboard player and church organist.

Mascari’s one hour workshop includes instruction on how to turn written notes into chord symbols, a demonstration of how songs can be played several different ways, help for participants who have brought songs they’d like to play as well as arranging steps to follow after the workshop. Just a few of the main issues covered are:

Best accompaniment patterns for personalized piano playing
When and how to identify the best style of accompaniment that fits the song
How to expand basic patterns to include the full piano keyboard
How to use a drum machine to make your piano playing sound even more exciting
