Piano Lessons through Piano Marvel!

MrW found an incredible new resource for students who want to learn how to play piano! Even better news is that these lessons are incredibly inexpensive, can work with your keyboard or digital piano at school or at home, and can move as fast as you want to learn.

The website says that lessons are $15/month (which is already awesome!) but because MrW signed up as a teacher, AMS Choir students can get a $3/month discount. Interested? Here's what to do:

  1. Go to their website: PianoMarvel.com
  2. After reading through their basic info, click "Create An Account" in the upper right
  3. Click "Subscription", fill out your info. Be sure to enter Studio as your promotional code to receive $3 off per month.
  4. Have your parent/guardian enter their CC info for secure billing
  5. Click "Create Account"
NOTE: If you don't have a keyboard or digital piano at home, you can sign up for a Practice Room at school! MrW will provide the piano and the MIDI cable, you bring your laptop and login to your PianoMarvel account to practice. MrW can even check your progress and help you set goals to improve! If you or your parents have questions, please contact MrW and he'll help out.
