    Hi Scot. Taking private lessons with you sounds pretty good. I’d like to know how that works and how much it would cost. I always seem to have some specific questions I wish I could ask a professional. Maybe this is something that would work for me. How can I tell? Harry “Gipper” Morris

      Best idea is to sign up for the Free Introductory Course to see how it works and if you like it. Regarding the specific questions, that is one of the BEST things about the online program is that we (95% of the time, I) will always be there to answer any specific questions you have and provide feedback through either emails, audio, or even in some cases customized video responses to questions. Along with the hard-copy books and materials (not e-books or pdf files) and video lessons, the feedback is one of the 3 “pillars” that set apart my program from any others out there.

    Scott –
    You always have such nice simple tips. Much appreciated.
    Question… Do you have a sample of your new teaching method, or is the free sample mentioned in this email it?

      The Free Introductory Course was developed to give someone a sample of how the online environment looks and works. The only difference is that in the actual Course(s) you will receive actual method books and song books that are integrated into my video lessons.

    Scott:
    Thanks again for another great tip.

    I’ve been playing the right hand octave (not throughout a song, but when called for to
    add to the piece) but I’ve always thrown in the fifth, so it won’t have a “boring” sound.
    What do you think?

      Think that’s a great idea! Just don’t overdo it by using it ALL the time. “Less is more” is a great phrase to keep in mind when using new tips or tricks…

    Thank You for all your tips! I have always wanted to play the piano ever since I was a little girl. Now at the age of ’74’ my dreams are coming true. I have learned so much from you and I sit at my piano more than I need to nowadays. If I’m nowhere to be seen my husband always goes to the piano. I ordered the online lessons and I’m so excited because I am now having FUN learning your method of playing.
