Learn to play piano by chords! Your first lesson is free.
Beginners are welcome! I also teach advanced students who want to learn jazz, blues, etc.
My name is Kent Smith. I have a degree in music, and 27 years experience teaching piano, keyboards, drums, and guitar. I can get you where you want to be in your piano playing. You can play some great stuff, and really enjoy yourself, quicker than you might think -- as long as you are willing to practice :-)
I'll bet you didn't know that practicing can also be fun! Your practicing assignments will be fun; and yet, very effective.
Playing piano based on chords allows you to reduce -- or completely eliminate -- the need to read traditional piano music (you know, the kind of notation with a treble staff, a bass staff, and all those NOTES). Professional keyboard players use chord-based playing all the time -- so this is not just for beginners. If you are interested, I can also teach you how to improvise, based on chords and scales (this is the path to jazz, blues, etc.).
I also teach traditional note-reading (such as reading and playing classical music, or working from standard sheet music).
