Your fingers will know it, so your brain can forget it.
Why is Quick Piano a superior method for learning how to play?
The reason both the Zoom-Type and Quick Piano programs by Renee Ellison work so well is their three distinctive aspects, which you will observe as you start to use them:
(1) Spaced repetition -- the skill is best learned in many short sessions rather than one long one.
(2) Right brain -- multi-sensory engagement, using the picture side of the brain, is the fastest route to the mastery of a new skill.
(3) Splintered skills -- you learn each skill separately, then when you put them together the brain jumps the synapses. For example, the keyboard pages teach the locations of the letters/ the keyboard notes. The practice keyboards train the reach and retract for the domain of each finger typing, and for playing the 24 major and minor piano chords.

Your Quick Piano course comes to you as 114 pages, 8 ½ x 11”, spiral bound. The course includes an introductory overview and progress chart followed by steps 1-16. Pages 90-113 are sheet music of dozens of songs with the melody notes and the corresponding chords for the songs you will be able to play. Scores of people have found our "picture" course enjoyable after trying the tedious left-brain approach of other beginning piano programs.
