  1. Watch the pledge specials: Play Piano in a Flash and then The New Play Piano in a Flash to gain an overview of the basic steps needed to enable you to play a favorite song from a lead sheet with two hands. 

    The Original Play Piano in a Flash gives you access to chord charts and graphics used in the video through a web address provided on the DVD.

The New Play Piano in a Flash DVD also includes a link so that you can print the lead sheet (sheet music) to the songs using your computer and printer.

Now you are ready for some private lessons from Scott using these great DVD’s:
  • The Piano Guy 1-on-1 Series: Amazing Grace
  • The Piano Guy 1-on-1 Series: Silent Night

Follow Scott chapter by chapter as he starts at the very beginning of the tune and works his way up, teaching you to play the song like you really are dying to sound!

These teaching videos are great for beginners and more advanced players alike as they allow learners to spend as little or as much time needed to get the info in each chapter “under hand” before progressing to the next chapter. All techniques learned can be added to your “piano playing bag of tricks” to be used later with other favorite songs!

These DVD’s also include links so that you can print the lead sheets (sheet music) to the songs using your computer and printer.
