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. For four sessions in January and in February, we will offer beginning piano lessons for adults. This is a fully hands-on, no-nonsense approach to learning to play the piano like a grown-up.

The library will have six portable keyboards available to check out, or you may use your own electric keyboard or piano. Library keyboards are circulated on a first-come, first-served basis.  You will need to call the library in order to reserve a keyboard.

The library will also provide easy-to-follow instructional materials to accompany the online lessons with music teacher Catherine Walters Brick. A digital version of the book for the course will be sent with the link to the Zoom class, but is also available in printed form for checkout at the library.  

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.
