I don't know about you,
but sometimes it seems like life just keeps getting a little more
stressful the older I get.
Maybe that's because I
have 4 kids from age 9 to 18 and I haven't reached my peak life stress
level yet :-)
But we all have our
stressful days and moments - whether it's due to family, a job,
friends, money, or just life circumstances.
me, music - whether for work or pleasure - is the way I relax. Either
walking into church and playing a beautiful grand piano, or lugging
around hundreds of pounds of musical and audio equipment to play and
sing at a wedding reception.
But you don't need to do
any of that to make your own relaxing music at the piano or keyboard.
In fact, it's so
unbelievably simple to do, you can easily turn this into your own form
of "musical meditation."
For me, when I think of
relaxing piano music, I immediately think of "New Age Piano."
What Does "New Age" Piano
Actually, I'm not really
crazy about the term "New Age," but it's come to represent a certain
style of music over the years that most people can identify.
Personally, I think of George Winston playing variations on Pachelbel's
"Canon in D," or an David Lanz or Windham Hill Piano Sampler CDs that I
break out every now and then.
As a piano player, I'm usually looking to recreate as many different
styles of music on the piano as possible and, hopefully, teach as many
other people how to do the same.
now and then, when life seems to get a little more hectic than usual,
I'll break out my favorite New Age piano music, and I'm reminded just
how easy it is to create a "New Age" style piano arrangement for myself.
not long ago, I also realized that, although it's very easy to make
your own New Age piano arrangement, I had never really created a lesson
about exactly how to do it.
One of the songs that always come to mind for me is a church hymn
that's based on an old Netherlands folk song - "We Gather Together."
Regardless of your religious beliefs or affiliations, it's hard to
argue with the fact that this is a beautiful melody with a simple,
equally beautiful harmonic structure.
That's why I decided to create a video piano lesson around that song
and use it to demonstrate exactly how to create beautiful New Age style
In my video piano course...
New Age Piano... FAST!
In this 1 1/2 hour video
piano lesson - in DVD and online video format - we start at the very
beginning and locate a basic lead sheet for this traditional melody.
Next, we make some "corrections" to that lead sheet, since it's rare to
be able to find even a simple lead sheet like this one that's ready to
In the process, I show you a nifty piece of online software which helps
you create your own lead sheets - or printed music of any kind - and
share them with the world (if you want), transpose them, or
print them for your own use.
Then, using some very minor tweaks - chord voicings and an additional
chord or two - we turn that lead sheet into a simple, but beautiful,
standard lead sheet arrangement that sounds great on its own.
From there, we move into creating a New Age style piano arrangement of
the song, complete with bass patterns and melodic embellishments that
add that extra little professional touch to this or any song.
Then we move into New Age improvisation style and how you can change
the harmonic structure in a way that ties into the original song, but
still gives you room to let your creative mind and fingers wander as
Finally, I show you how to apply these techniques to any other song you
like, and how to adjust your brain and fingers to play New Age style
piano in any key you want.
Here are just a few more things you'll learn in New Age Piano... FAST!
||How to use parallel
harmonies to make an ordinary melody or improvisation line really come
||How to use the circle of 4ths to add
professional-sounding harmonic depth to a simple lead sheet arrangement.
||How you can actually change the harmonic
structure and phrasing to give yourself even more creative room, but
still maintain a connection to the original song.
It's Like Taking 3 Half-Hour Piano Lessons...
For About 1/4th The Investment!
a 1-1/2 hour piano lesson would cost in the neighborhood of about $105,
but Thanksgiving is coming up here in the US, and since this is sort of
a "Thanksgiving" song, I've decided to offer it for a limited
time for just:
until THIS THURSDAY, November 24th, 2016 (yes, that's Thanksgiving) at
After that, the price
goes up to the (still bargain) retail price of just $47.

Has To Say After Using My Original, "Professional Piano Chords" Guide:
Finding you on the internet was the greatest piano blessing that I have
discovered. Purchasing your product is the BEST MUSICAL INVESTMENT that
I have spent my money on in the last 3 years. And believe me... Over
the past 3 years I have invested literally thousands of dollars in
CD's, Tapes, Books, Music Lessons.
Your program has simplified, what I have exhausted myself searching
for. I am a disabled veteran, so I have much time to practice, study
and research. I literally spend 4 to 5 hours a day practicing on my
Yamaha Piano. For the past 2 years, I have spend $100 each month for
music lessons from a very talented music director. Although he is an
excellent instructor, (I could say musical genius) he sometimes teaches
over my head. (And I consider myself to be intelligent). I have figured
out in 3 hours of disecting your section on 13th Chords, what has
bewildered me with his methodolgy of instruction. Dont get me wrong ..
I have learned a great deal from him, but your program has regenerated
my enthusiasm and has uplifted my spirits and given me great
I finally genuinly feel that there is light at the end of my tunnel. It
all makes sense now. You have filled in the gaps, and I am able to do
this at my pace.
I thank you again, and would highly recommend your product to anyone
that is serious about learning to play music on a keyboard or piano.

What He Only Just Heard Before:
Your guide to professional-sounding chords is nothing short of
brilliant! I have been in bands semi-professionally for years as a
singer-guitarist, and now in later years I have enjoyed playing piano
around home as a hobby. Your informative guide is a terrific teaching
tool, but perhaps your follow-up e-mails are even more "key", since
they serve as further incentive for someone to pitch in and get this
Your information, together with your follow-up program is the best I
have seen in terms of communicating how music works, especially to
those who are intimidated by notes, staffs, clefs, rests, etc. In my
case, I have always been able to "hear" the chords I wanted - now that
I have your book, I am able to play most of them as well.
Thanks, Bill, for sharing this absolutely terrific knowledge.
