"Playing piano should be easy" says Weiss
-- Who says you have to spend years in a conservatory in order to play the piano. Not pianist and online teacher Edward Weiss who says it's a lot easier to play piano by chords and promises to teach anyone how to play in 30-days or less.
Mr. Weiss has developed a ‘new age’ approach to playing piano that, according to this eclectic teacher, can have anyone not only playing piano in less than a month, but also create their own music.When asked how he accomplishes this remarkable feat, Edward Weiss comments:
“I have my students learn something called the ‘open position chord’ first. It’s a special chord structure that allows the complete beginner to play piano with both hands right away. Not only that, it’s a modern sounding chord structure. Most teachers start students off with triads. And while these are still used, they aren’t very modern sounding. My approach bypasses the antiquated classical method to get students improvising and creating on their own, usually, in just a few hours.”
Not the usual method of instruction to say the least, Mr. Weiss’s course has been online for over 10 years and thousands have taken it. The goal, according to this New Age piano teacher is to focus in and enjoy the process of creating while letting go of the outcome or need to produce a finished product. This process oriented approach is intended to ‘free up ‘ the student’s intuition and allow them to express themselves quickly and easily at the piano.
