  1. Thanks – this was an interesting article. Recently, I found a great resource online – you might be surprised. It’s a guide that says it can teach someone piano in 3 hours or less – I was intrigued so I tried it out and it was fabulous. My 12 year old WAS playing. So – I thought I would pass it along because it really was fun and simple.

    here are the details – “Learn the Piano More Quickly” by Sebastian Mitchell and I ordered here – http://www.pianoaccelerator.com/ And you get it right away in your email. Highly recommend it.

    Thanks for this post – I love reading about all ideas out there.
