Hey Kris & CO. I've actually played the piano since I was a little kid and if I get my hands on a decent camera, I could do piano lessons from easy to almost advanced, in a guitar players perspective. Unfortunately, I don't have any recording device to either record music or video, unless I plug directly into the computer... which is impossible with a piano.

So my question is if you're interested in piano lessons as well, or only in guitar, bass and singing.

Yeah, I have a digital piano I can plug directly in my computer, or into the camera (once I get one). But it might be worth a try then, since so many of you would like it.

Might happen after the summer, if I work and get some money and spend it on a camcoder. Thanks for your opinions though.

Piano lesson would be cool,couse,it is a very useful instrument in every way.I play piano(keyboard) for two hours every day now,and the good stuff is that you can easy record midi instruments,and it is always better then "running" with a muse in your midi key editor.
So,piano lesson would be great.smile.gif

I used to play piano quite a lot, and it's been priceless in making me understand more about chords and stuff. Lessons and the motivation to start again would be great. smile.gif

I agree,the best way to learn and "feel" the music harmony is trough piano,it helped me a lot when it comes to theory and making songs.

Some nice beginner piano lessons would be cool. For starters lesson how to hold hands properly, and what to practice FIRST. Also other than scales up/down, what exercises are good.

Okay, please feel free to come with suggestions on how to do them, that will do nothing but improve my future lessons. Here's what I've thought about.

First, how to hold hands, how to position oneself for maximum fluidity and accessability. Then I'm going to explain how the notes are distributed on the piano. Then explain what the pedals do, how the piano is constructed. Then just go for chords, how to structure them. Then show a few simple shapes and teach a simple song.

The next lesson would be all about fingering because there's nothing that will limit your playing more than bad fingering doing that over a nice little etude.

Then I'd show chords in the right hand and simple bass slings in the left. What to think about etc. Then the rest will come naturally.

These first lessons would have to be one on one. Then I'd make a more complicated lesson, for those who already got the basics down.

what do you guys think?

Great idea to me, I played the organ for many years as a kid, so would like to brush up my keyboard skills as I still have a Technics organ.
Top Notch Idea!!!!
