Piano Teacher Available
Mark Miller has been teaching blind and visually impaired piano students for over 15 years. He teaches over the phone and/or over Skype/Zoom.
His method of teaching combines some ear training with a lot of theory/practical concepts. Students can expect to learn all their 3-note chords in the first lesson or two, and then apply those left-hand chords in popular songs.
Miller offers a free 30-minute, no-obligation lesson/consultation. For more information, call him at (847) 401-1721, or visit www.blindpianolessons.com.
