Scott Houston's Bio:
The way piano is usually taught involves practicing endless scales and etudes, memorizing complicated notation, and focusing on classical music—not to mention the challenge of finding a teacher near you. It's no wonder most folks who take traditional piano lessons either lose interest or become a good sight reader rather than a good player. It's a shame because there's actually an alternative chord-based method that makes piano one of the easiest and most freeing instruments to learn to play!
With this method, new and more experienced players alike use lead sheets (simplified sheet music with letters) to learn the chords and melody of familiar tunes by actually playing them. I didn't invent this method. Heck, I'm not even one of the first people to teach it! But I am the most passionate about using it to help people play recreationally at any age. Throughout my chord-based courses, I focus on popular modern music and break down songs into small exercises, allowing students to quickly build their musical ear and fine motor skills without any notation knowledge. I believe that it's never too late to learn or loosen up your playing, which is why Piano in a Flash can be taken at any experience level, at any speed, all in a flexible online setting built just for adult learners.
