Earlier today, I got to demonstrate the Simply Music piano method as a guest on Linda & Chester Freeman’s Swing Shift radio show. Linda & Chester run Got2Lindy Dance Studios, and their radio show airs on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on WHVW 950AM out of Poughkeepsie, NY.
In addition to talking about the Simply Music method, I demonstrated it by teaching Beethoven’s Ode to Joy to Linda and one of the show’s sponsors, Susan Simon of Third Eye Associates. The piece is covered as part of the regular Simply Music curriculum‘s first level as well as my Introduction to Simply Music Piano Lessons workshop.
Linda and Susan both did really well, especially when you consider how different the situation was from regular lessons! We were going at a pretty fast past since we only had so much time for the show, and we were also all sitting pretty motionless in a tiny studio with few opportunities to interact the way we normally would be able to during lessons.
You can listen to the episode at the Swing Shift Radio Show Library Archives.
