Change Your Life with the Power of Music
Playing the piano everyday will improve your health and wellbeing.
It is a medicine with no pills and no side effects.
Playing music brings joy and has the power to change your life.
Have you always dreamed of playing the piano?
· Do you wish you could read music and play the songs you love?
· Did you quit lessons and now have time to devote to music?
· Are you looking for creative new ways to enhance your life and improve your health?
· Have you tried ‘overnight’ methods that leave you stuck.
· Start learning today with a conservatory trained pianist with over 30 years teaching experience!
Your Time to Play is a step by step piano/keyboard program that gives you the tools to be able to read and play ANY style of music from classical to pop!
“The concept is sort of like Rosetta Stone for music.”
COST EFFECTIVE. Each level is $19.95 and approximately four months of lessons which would typically cost $400!
PLAY ALONG WITH THE BAND. Fully orchestrated accompaniments make practicing delightful.
A COMPREHENSIVE METHOD. Each lesson teaches a music fact through a performance piece and is followed by a theory worksheet for written practice. Finger exercises are assigned to stretch and strengthen the finger muscles. Joanne’s inspirational stories and quotes are integrated into the series to provide encouragement along the way.
Reintroducing a creative outlet into my life - making music through piano - has been extraordinarily healing for me. When I focus on reading music, and I hear the sounds that I am creating as my fingers play the keys, I'm transported to another world. The experience is a balm for my body, mind, and spirit. D. Witt
"I have been using your program with all of my homeschooled children for over 10 years...one is now a 22 year old music major who was not interested in music before I "made" him learn piano." S. Rickman
Joanne Jolee is a passionate advocate for the power and benefits of music. At a time when we are focused on maximizing the value we spend on our children, helping them develop into competent, capable adults, she reminds us of the scientifically proven value of a music education. For adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, or just the stresses of modern living, she reminds us of the power that music holds to heal and nourish. Joanne Jolee is an excellent speaker: professional, vibrant, compelling. I highly recommend her for music mentorship or music advocacy: she truly walks her talk! L.
