SAN DIEGO - May 7, 2013 - PRLog -- If you’re thinking of learning piano, you may want to take a hint from piano teacher Edward Weiss who suggests note reading is not the best way to start.

In fact, Weiss, who teaches something called ‘new age’ piano online, says that it’s far better to learn how to speak the language of music first and compares what he does to the right-brain approach visual artist Betty Edwards used for her book 'Drawing on the Right-Side of the Brain.'

Here’s what this 'New Age' piano teacher has to say about it…

“Most students who want to play piano think they must start out with note reading. But not only is note reading the last thing that should be learned, it can be a hindrance when focusing in on creative expression.”

The creative expression Weiss talks about has a lot to do with what he teaches, and that’s something called ‘new age’ piano.

The ‘new age’ style of piano playing started back in the early 1980’s and was jumpstarted by pianist and composer George Winston. Winston released an album titled ‘December’ and the rest as they say is history. It became a hugely successful record for Winston and launched his career and the genre known as ‘new age’ music.

Calm and relaxing, new age music has been used as a way for people to relax and uniwnd after a busy day of work or as a way to create a soothing ambiance in homes and retail spaces. The idea of actually creating it on one’s own is an idea Mr. Weiss had as soon as he was able to hook up his keyboard to a computer.

Weiss elaborates….

“I know a lot of people love this style of piano music and would like to be able to create it. It’s mostly an improvised music and this is where the real beauty of the style is because once students get a taste of how freeing it can be to just sit down at the piano and play, it becomes something that remains forever.”
