Learn something new in the new year!
Did you always want to learn how to play the piano, but didn’t do it when you were younger? Do you wish you had paid more attention to those lessons Mom made you take when you were 12? Is Granny’s piano sitting in a corner gathering dust? Or do you just want to be able to pick out a melody and harmonize it at the piano without studying four years of music theory?
No matter your level of familiarity with the piano, you are invited to attend the Columbus Public Library’s online Adult Beginning Piano course. This is a fully hands-on, no-nonsense approach to learning to play the piano like a grown-up. For three weeks each in January and in February, we will offer two sets of beginning piano lessons for adults:
Set I lessons - Jan. 8, 15, and 22, 4:00-5:00pm
Set II lessons - Feb. 12, 19, and 26 , 4:00-5:00pm
The library will have six portable keyboards available to check out, or you may use your own electric keyboard or piano. The library will also provide easy-to-follow instructional materials to accompany the online lessons with music teacher Catherine Walters Brick.
All you need is a smart phone, tablet, or computer to follow along with the online instruction. You do not need to know how to read music, although it will be helpful if you remember some of it.
To participate, you must register. Please click here to register. For questions or details on how to check out the keyboards, call the library at 920-623-5910 and ask for Catherine.
