For about the cost of 2 piano lessons, this video (both VHS and DVD formats are available) will provide readers with years of musical enjoyment. If truth be known, there is another way to learn how to play piano rather than going to weekly lessons and spending thousands of dollars in the process.
The secret is learning to play the way the pros play. Learning to play in that style is enormously simpler than traditional classical piano lessons. Even better, it takes an absolute minimum amount of note reading ability.
Best of all, your tour guide for this adventure, Scott "The Piano Guy" Houston, forces you to have fun along the way!
Is this DVD going to prepare the viewer for a career as a concert pianist? Absolutely not! However, if you simply want to play some piano for the simple goal of enjoying yourself, then get ready to knock a lifelong dream from your "to-do" list. Have fun!
This is the same presentation as seen by millions of viewers on public television stations for their fund raising pledge drives. In addition there is another 80 minutes of bonus material never seen on TV!
There is also a "Play Piano in a Flash!" book and a "Play Piano in a Flash!" book examples audio CD available from Amazon to help round out your instructional collection.

Maybe there's a better system out there and maybe this DVD is even weak on content as other people seem to imply -- this is the only DVD on the piano I've ever purchased so I have nothing to compare it too -- but for me personally, the DVD was very much worth the money. In less than 5 hours of practice I was playing through some of favorite church pieces. Yeah, I was flubbing a lot of notes, but the songs were still coming through. One of my friends was listening to me play one day and asked how many "months" I had been taking lessons. "I think I'm up to 10 hours now!", I laughed. I'm NOT a gifted a musician, yet this DVD was able to open up the piano for me and in turn my guitar playing has also improved.
