For Immediate Release: July 16, 2010
to play guitar or
piano in a day
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (July 16,
2010) For anyone who wants to learn how to play guitar or
piano, but can never find the time for lessons, Goodyear Parks and
Recreation has the perfect solution.
On August 12, Craig Coffman teaches
his two most popular classes: "Just ONCE Guitar for Hopelessly
Busy Adults and Teens," and "Just ONCE Piano for Busy Adults."
The guitar class, from 4 to 6:30
p.m., is designed for absolute beginners. In just one night, students
learn to tune the guitar, play basic chords, and strum simple tunes. There is a
materials fee (residents-$52, non-residents $57), which includes a workbook and
a two-hour DVD. Once students know the basics, they will have the confidence to
join an on-going class or continue learning on their own.
The chord piano class from 6:40
to 9:40 p.m. teaches students to use chords, just like professional piano
players. This unusual method is not taught by most piano teachers, but more
than 20,000 people have learned the basics in the 20 years Craig Coffman has
been using this approach. He leaves his students with smiles on their faces as
he clears away the mystery and demonstrates how pianists conquer the keyboard
without sheet music. There is a materials fee (residents-$52, non-residents
$57), which includes a workbook and CD with classroom information. By the time
students leave class, they'll be able to play "The Entertainer." For
more information, visit pianofun.com or justonceclasses.com. Beginners need to
know the treble clef and where to find Middle C before arriving at class.
Stop by class to pick up a free
pamphlet on the subject, or send a self-addressed stamped envelope to
Innovative Keyboard Instruction 2841 S. Southwind Dr., Gilbert, AZ 85295.
