Yoga for Piano? Unique Online Course Soothes Stressed Out Students
(Published: May 19, 2011)

Twisting, stretching, and holding a pose ... that's what yoga students do to tone and relax the body at the same time.

But piano teacher Edward Weiss doesn't want all those benefits to go just to yoga students.

Weiss, a pianist, composer, and teacher has developed an online piano course where students can learn how to play something called ‘new age' piano.

The ‘new age' genre has been around since the early 1980's and remains a legitimate style of music. Even the Grammy awards recognize it. So it's no surprise that someone somewhere would create a place where those wanting to learn this style of music can go.

Weiss explains...

"I've always loved the sound of New Age piano and wanted to bring the benefits of playing in this style to as many people as possible. The great thing about this genre of music is that no note-reading is required and students can simply sit down at the piano, relax, and play what they feel at the same time."

The course now has over 100 lessons and 1000 members. Students have access to videos, audio, and personal instruction from Weiss who charges a small monthly fee for access to everything on the site.

When asked what his ultimate goal is for students, Weiss responds:

"If someone can just walk over to their piano or keyboard, sit down, and just play what they are feeling, then I feel I've accomplished what I set out to do which is give people a way to relax, unwind, and get creative at the piano."

A free piano lesson ‘Summer Morning' and book ‘Free to be Creative at the Piano' are available at Weiss's website at http://www.quiescencemusi...
