Come learn how to change the rhythm, style, genre, or key signature of any piece you are working on as Jerald Simon teaches those attending how to "Play the Same Song 100 Different Ways". Copies of his new best selling book: "100 Left Hand Patterns Every Piano Player Should Know - Play the Same Song 100 Different Ways", which also includes Simon's FUN Fake Book (featuring 100 songs in Fake Book Format) will also be available for sale from the music store for the workshop attendees. This new book, "100 Left Hand Patterns", is the #1 Music Book in the Hot New Releases Piano Song Book section as well as being #1 in the Hot New Releases Music Theory Book section on Amazon (amazon.com).

Simon refers to himself as a Music Mentor—a piano teacher who teaches more than dots on a page. In his own piano teaching and studio, Simon helps piano students learn what he refers to as: “The Practical Application of Music Theory". He also calls it "Putting FUN back into piano FUNdamentals". To do this, Simon has composed what have become known as COOL SONGS, original piano compositions initially composed for his own piano students to help teach music theory the FUN way. The piano pieces range in styles and genres from classical to new age, pop, rock, techno, jazz, blues, boogie-woogie, hymn arrangements, and more. The books from Simon's Music Motivation® Series are being used all over the world. Here is what Simon has to say about his piano lessons, which focus primarily on teaching teenagers and adults the following: 1. Music Theory (Theory Therapy), 2. Improvisation (Innovative Improvisation), and 3. Composition (Creative Composition):

"If you come to piano lessons each week and walk away only having learned about music notation, rhythm, and dots on a page, then I have failed as a Music Mentor. Life lessons are just as important, if not more important than music lessons. I would rather have you learn more about goal setting and achieving, character, dedication, and personal  improvement. To have you learn to love music, appreciate it, and play it, is a wonderful byproduct you will have for the rest of your life - a talent that will enrich your life and the lives of others. To become a better musician is wonderful and important, but to become a better person is more important." - Jerald Simon
