Medford, OR (PRWEB) June 6, 2005
A free 101-week series of online piano lessons for piano players of all levels is available from a guy in Oregon named Duane who has so much fun playing the piano that it should be illegal. It's called "Piano Chords & Chord Progressions" and it's for everybody from seasoned piano players to people who don't know Middle C from Tweedle Dee but want to learn to play the piano.
Every Wednesday morning for 101 weeks subscribers will receive an e-mail that will direct them to a full-color full-sound Web page that will demonstrate how easy and fun chords can be.
Some of the topics are: Major chords, minor chords, 7th chords, 9th chords, suspensions, the Circle of Keys, the 12-bar blues, gospel chord progressions, how to predict which chord comes next in a song, how to match the melody of a song to an appropriate chord, how to develop an ear for chords, practice tips, and 92 others.
Each week for 101 weeks subscribers are notified that a new online piano lesson is available by way of an e-mail. The e-mail contains a link which leads to the actual lesson, which is both presented in audio with photos of each chord or progression, and on occasion, video of Duane demonstrating a technique on the grand piano.
