Your Piano-Playing Dreams Will Come True With...
101 ways to use the piano chords & scales
you already know!"
(Naked piano music is plain old written music without all the fills and thrilling runs and beautiful chords and all that I'm going to show you how to do in my 2-hour DVD) (plus 2 CD's and a big loose-leaf binder with each technique shown in print...)
Would you daydream with me for a moment? It’s a daydream I used to dream often back when I was taking piano lessons:
You are sitting at the piano surrounded by your family and friends,
playing in a full, lush, style with chords galore and runs and fills flowing
up and down all over the keyboard. Can you see that in your mind’s eye?
I’ve got great news for you!
It doesn’t have to be a dream! You can learn to play like that just like I did. It’s not so much a matter of talent as it is of knowing what to do and how to do it. And that knowledge can be acquired. After all, it's just a matter of taking common chords you already know and twisting them around in unique ways -- breaking them up -- applying rhythm patterns to them -- combining 3 or 4 notes of the scales you already know into logical paths that take you to the next chord progression. It's not brain surgery and it's not rocket science -- anyone can do it if they take the time to learn certain techniques.
I’m going to show you over ONE HUNDRED ways to make your piano playing come to life. We'll take the chords and scales you already know and learn how to make all kinds of wonderful sounds with them -- in all different arranging styles. I am going to show you IN PRINT (in the big 8 1/2” by 11” book that comes with the course) and also in SOUND (in the TWO CD's that come with the course) plus you will SEE and HEAR each technique as you watch the fantastic 2-hour DVD video on arranging music on the piano! On it I will carefully demonstrate each technique so you can hear how it sounds as well as SEE what it looks like — you will watch my hands as I play each chord, each run, each style, each technique — in close-ups and in slow motion — so you can understand clearly how you can play it too.
Would you like to be able to create MOODS at the keyboard? To ignite the emotions of the listener? To EXCITE the listener with exhilarating, arousing, animated music? To create a sense of nostalgia, longing, or sadness with poignant, bittersweet chords & progressions?
Or play with such zest and gusto that the listener just can’t sit still? Or maybe play with that splendid, royal, radiant touch that makes people stiffen their backbones and look at reality boldly “Winston Churchill” music, as someone has called it.
You’ll find all of these feelings created through the use of techniques such as…
Here are some of the piano playing styles you will learn:
"the trumpet trio intro & exit" on page 40
"the inside blues move" on page 47
"the walking string bass style" on page 34
"the chromatic run technique" on page
Is it hard?
Not if you know chords already. If you don't know chords -- don't take this course yet. Take a course on chords first, such as Chord Piano or All The Chords In The Whole Wide World.
But if you DO know chords, then all you need to do is learn how to apply those chords in certain ways, and I give you over 100 different ways to use them (see the list above).
Here's what one person wrote about the course:
|"Words cannot express my joy at having found you. I'm 63 and have been
studying piano on and off all my life - even studying with high-priced
teachers. Every single one told me they could not teach me how to play
from chords. One expressed it was a gift and that either you have it for
Well...3 days after receiving your "Naked Music" course, I was able to play from chords. Trying to understand why now at long last...it's because of your way of teaching. You make it soooo simple. First you explain what to do; then you demonstrate it, then you follow up the demonstration by explaining what you did and how the student can apply it to their written music. Beautiful!
Can't tell you how many other books I've bought that left me confused. So I love you, love you, love you. And will buy many other of your courses."
Donna P., Akron, Ohio (letter, Nov 12, 2003)
"I think I may have told you what my husband said when I first started ordering your courses a few years back...he said "Where has Duane been all your life?" I've taken off and on from different teachers and in various situations and he always saw how frustrating it was for me to be unable to get exactly the "right" teacher to explain the "neat stuff" to me. It always seemed a secret kept for only the privileged few. That's for letting me in on many of those fun things to do on the piano."

Duane, I just wanted to take a minute and say thanks to
you. I recently
And about a zillion others (would you believe a few hundred?):
