Hopelessly busy? Add piano class

Copiah-Lincoln Community College Special Interest program is offering “Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People,” a workshop for anyone who has always wanted to play the piano. David Haynes will lead the class from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18.

If you yearn to experience the joy of playing piano, but you don’t want years of weekly lessons, this short course is for you. A tortuous regimen of scales, exercises, note reading, counting and theory usually associated with piano lessons is not necessary.

If you’re a true beginner in music, or an experienced note reader who wants to be freed from reading notes, in just one enjoyable evening, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to make piano playing a part of your life, learning to play the way the pros do — with chords. Save time and money with this innovative approach that shows you the easy way to play several songs right in class, and then develop your techniques on your own piano or keyboard using the exclusive CD provided by the instructor. You’ll learn all the chords needed to play any song, any style and any key including: gospel, country, blues, standards, show tunes, Christmas carols, etc. You’ll also get a healthy dose of insider secrets on how to embellish songs.

This is a beginners class in chord piano techniques that will have you playing your favorite songs soon after only one session. It’s a proven, fun and relaxed approach to professional-style playing. No one will be embarrassed or put on the spot in class, and people are amazed at how much they learn in just one session. If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop. If not, send a self-addressed stamped envelope for a free pamphlet to Music Masters, 90 Molly Lane, Ringgold, GA, 30736 and then register with confidence!

Cost of the course is $50, plus an additional $25 materials fee collected by instructor in class (32-page book and a 68-minute practice CD which is used as the textbook in class). The book and CD reviews everything learned in class and walks you through the process of playing each song at home through listening and imitating step by step. David Haynes has taught music for more than 30 years, and enjoys inspiring thousands of people in his classes all over the eastern United States with his enthusiasm and love of music. Prepare for a wonderful and dynamic experience while learning “Instant Piano for Hopelessly Busy People.”

Because enrollment is limited, pre-registration is requested in order to estimate the number of books needed. Call me at 601-446-1103 or e-mail beth.richard@colin.edu.
