Take some private lessons from Scott Houston, the Emmy award winning host of “The Piano Guy” TV series on public television! This app is designed to do one thing extremely well - teach you to play Amazing Grace like a pro would play it.
This app is large (640MB) because the approx. 2 hours of video is contained in the app, not streamed. This allows you to sit at your piano or keyboard with the app even if you have no wireless connectivity and assures an extremely high quality and responsive viewing experience.
Because of this, it is much faster to download the app from iTunes on your computer, then transfer it to your iPad or iPhone or iPod Touch when you sync. If you decide to download directly to your device over WiFi you can expect a 30-60 minute duration. It's worth it though!
Starting at a very beginning level, follow Scott chapter by chapter as he works his way up, teaching you to play the song like you want to sound - like a seasoned pro. Never played before? Don't read music? No problem …
Simply place your iPad or iPhone on the music stand of your piano or keyboard and with Scott’s help you’ll be knocking a lifelong dream of having fun playing piano off your list in hours and days – not weeks and years.
This app is great for beginners as well as more advanced players alike as it allows you to spend as little or as much time needed to get the info in each chapter “under hand” before progressing to the next chapter.
You will be able to see Scott’s hands clearly during the approximately 2 hours total video in all the lessons. You'll also have access to the Lead Sheet (the special style of sheet music pros use), as well as to chord charts for every chord used in the lessons.
The free content will get you to a point of playing a nice, simple version of the tune with two hands. An in-app purchase will unlock the remaining lessons with more pro “tips and tricks” to take your playing to the next level.
