Man takes stage after only 30 days of piano lessons!

I have to admit, after reading this, I was a bit skeptical. When I was growing up, I heard horror stories about the “old school” process of learning to play the piano – stern piano teacher and hours of practicing scales and a bunch of songs that I would never voluntarily play. I remember thinking, “how can that be fun?”

I decided to explore the claim in the title of this post further and learn about Playground Sessions. Playground Sessions is an interactive piano learning system that is designed to get you up and playing quickly by teaching you how to play popular songs. Gone are the days of tedious scales and learning antiquated songs where you run the risk of losing interest. With “Playground”, you get right into the fun. It combines video where you can follow along on your keyboard and it incorporates game-style points and interactivity to keep you engaged.

After watching the video, I got excited about learning the piano again. And, it looks like they are keeping up with versioning as they have just released Playground Sessions
version 2.0. At a glance, it looks like a lot of new enhancements, practice sessions and songs.

So, If you’ve been considering taking up the piano (or revisiting it now that it is so easy to learn), I encourage you to check it out. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
