Traditionally, piano lessons have been based almost exclusively on learning to read music. Specifically, the emphasis has been on classical music, with the goal of producing concert pianists.
Sadly, the actual result was a generation of piano quitters who gave up long before they hit the stage.
David Sprunger, CEO of Music Unlimited Inc., publisher of "Pattern Piano and Keyboard", says that, "An amazing number of our students come from a background of frustration with traditional piano lessons. By harnessing the power of Rhythmic Patterns, they are able to quickly create fantastic arrangements by ear on the piano. It's so rewarding to see them really get excited about the piano again!"
Sprunger goes on to say that "Although the technique of Rhythmic Patterns is brand new to the piano, guitar players have been doing this for years. Typically, beginning guitar players learn one simple strumming or picking pattern and then simply play that pattern over every chord in a song. As they progress on their instrument, they'll add more advanced patterns and learn to mix and match them in unique ways to create their own sound.
This is so vastly different than the method piano players have struggled with over the years. By focusing exclusively on reading music, piano lessons have not fostered an individual creativity that allows students to express themselves on the keyboard. It's no wonder that everyone abandoned the piano back in the 60's and picked up a guitar!"
By borrowing the powerful technique of Rhythmic Patterns from the guitar world, "Pattern Piano and Keyboard" opens up a whole new universe to piano players, allowing them to develop fantastic arrangements of any song by ear. The real beauty of the technique is that students quickly develop their own style and unique sound, leading to a lifelong love of the instrument.
After a short study on music theory and chords, students of the course learn to play their first song using one simple Rhythmic Pattern. Although this is a very simple way to begin, this piano lessons technique is open-ended. By the end of the course, students will have an entire arsenal of Rhythmic Patterns under their hands, and will be able to mix and match them in an infinite variety of ways to play any song by ear!
After going through "Pattern Piano and Keyboard", students will be able to dive into the advanced "style development" piano lessons online at Piano Lessons Unlimited. Music Unlimited Inc. also regularly adds new content to their blues piano lessons website.
