Welcome to PianoFAST! Our mission is to share power lessons, tips, and secrets to help you play piano – and sound like a pro – fast.
My name is Bill Romer, and I am a professional piano player. I have a regular weekly gig at two different churches, and I play a number of weddings, receptions, fundraisers and private parties throughout the year.
I LOVE the piano. I love playing, talking about and teaching piano, which is why I started this blog and why I’ve begun creating both online and DVD-based video piano lessons designed to teach people how to play piano fast.
I think there are too many people out there who want to play the piano, and who get lost somewhere along the way, in too many lessons, too much theory, or too many complicated guide books. I believe learning should and CAN be much easier than all that, and it’s my goal to show you how.
When it comes down to it, the key to playing piano is to be able to read – or remember – a simple melody line and the chords that go with it, and to get to those chords quickly. If you see a chord symbol on a piece of music, the goal is not to translate that chord into notes on the musical staff, then figure out which notes those are, where they are played on the piano, and then play them.
The goal is to just see the chord symbol and play the chord as quickly as possible. It’s just like speaking your native language… the words are just there when you need them.
And that’s what I’m going to teach you to do on the piano.
I’m also going to throw in some diversions, videos, links, and other fun stuff along the way – just so we don’t get too serious around here.
So…thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to comment on a particular post, or just shoot me a message through our contact form.
