New partnership brings Palm Spring seniors safe and easy access to piano lessons

Piano in a Flash is thrilled to announce its latest partnership with the Mizell Center in Palm Springs, CA. Together, Piano in a Flash and the Mizell Center will work to bring the joy of playing the piano to Mizell’s members.

The Mizell Center is a leader in providing programs and services for seniors that promote lifelong learning. Piano in a Flash is dedicated to teaching adults how to have fun playing the piano. Together, these two organizations look forward to serving the community of Palm Springs (and beyond).

This partnership developed in part because of the pandemic and in part because both parties involved were willing to try something new. When the Mizell Center locked down, they began looking for virtual ways to foster a sense of comradery and their members’ continued engagement in creative, healthful activities.

Enter Scott Houston “The Piano Guy” and his online method. After over 20-years of teaching his piano method on television and at live workshops, Houston recognized a need to make his courses more accessible. In response to that need, he developed an online learning platform that allows students to access piano lessons at any time from the comfort and safety of their home. When COVID locked the world down, it seemed as if this virtual method – Piano in a Flash – was designed for a time just like this.

“This partnership with Mizell brings both Piano in a Flash and Mizell one step closer to our goals,” said Houston. “I’m excited to embrace this opportunity with the team at Mizell and help more people get a kick out of tickling the ivories.”

This uniting of purpose with the Mizell Center is an exciting new step for Piano in a Flash. With students already signing into their courses from all over the world, Piano in a Flash is eager to join hands with even more partner companies and continue sharing Houston’s message that “You CAN play piano and it’s never too late to start.”
