Confidently Teach Students to Play Any Style Using Lead Sheets
LEARN THE STEPS TO SUCCESSFULLY GUIDE
STUDENTS TO PLAY ANY STYLE OF MUSIC ON THE PIANO
Taking the Lead Course with Forrest Kinney
Do you have teaching experience but just aren’t sure where to start with lead sheets?
Do you feel a bit hesitant to ‘just play’?
Do you find yourself playing a pretty square ‘Happy Birthday’ at events because you just never had help with lead sheets and arranging in lessons??
Or maybe you can play from lead sheets confidently, but it’s tough to guide students to do the same.
Do you feel like you have no idea how to play freely?
We get it. Traditional music education focuses on reading music notation and playing pieces ‘as written.’ This rich tradition is so important and wonderful.
But what about when it’s time to play something simple but flashy on a whim?
Connecting the dots between traditional classical music education to lead sheet playing and arranging is easier than you think – this step-by-step course will guide you the whole way.
