This week, we are actually doing the recording.

It is a brutal week, and I will not be sad when it is all done.

How to play congregational hymns – 4 hours

Reharmonization (extended chords, chord subs, and complete reharmonization of songs) – 4 hours
Arranging – 3 hours
How to learn to play by ear – 2 hours

    Dear Greg,
    I can’t wait for this new instructional video to come out. I am thoroughtly enjoying, and also learning so much from your initial piano video instructional program. You teach with such skill and authenticity that it makes the learning process easy to absorb what you’re teaching, and you also make it a fun time at the piano. Thank you for opening up the piano to me.

    This sounds great, Greg! I bought your “Inspirational Improvisation” course and am slowly working my way through it. It looks like the new one will cover a lot of new material….is it like an add-on, or more like a completely new course? Am also wondering if the DVDs will be available separately, or sold just as a package..and do you have an idea yet as to price?
    Thanks so much!

    Sounds like great stuff, Mr. Howlett. Infact, I almost feel like a small child awaiting Christmas morning. Good luck with the recording.
