PIANO PLAYING A DYING ART?
In this day and age of almost everything being automated, it seems that taking the time to learn how to play a musical instrument has almost died out. In the past there were pianos, or organs in almost every home. Children would learn an instrument as they were growing up and have basic musical skills to provide enjoyment throughout their lives. Now it seems that everyone is too busy to bother with what once was a common form of recreation and enjoyment in everyday life.
"Music can be relaxing, stimulating, exciting and moving. It is a safe and even healthy release from the tensions of the everyday world." says Michael McMillan, musician and piano instructor. " Playing an instrument can be a wonderful way to relax after a hard day!" Mr. McMillan instructs a workshop which can actually show adults how to do that in about three hours. This revolutionary class uses a chord based method to play piano, much like a guitar player would play off a chord chart. No previous piano experience is required, and very little note reading is involved. " If you know where middle C is, and remember 'Every Good Boy Does Fine' I can show you how to play in a few hours."
"Many people learn this method and find themselves spending evenings playing the piano, instead of playing 'couch potato' in front of the TV!" Studies have shown music to be mentally, and physically, beneficial to people of all ages. It has been shown to improve the body's immune response, and along with other mental activity, may even reduce the incidence of Alzheimer's.
Mr. McMillan's class, INSTANT PIANO (for hopelessly busy people), is geared towards adults who just want to make playing music a part of their lives. "Some students may go on to a more serious career in music, but most of them just want to make piano playing a part of their life for the shear fun of it!"
INSTANT PIANO is being offered by City of Decatur Active Living on June 29.
