This is the most exciting thing we've done in a
long time. Maybe ever. I'll send you detailed info
very soon. But this is what I can reveal now.
The dates: Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24
The location: Walker Creek Ranch, near Petaluma in
Marin County, Northern California.
The agenda: Eight sessions of just piano, over a
two day period. Includes guided practicing with
one-on-one coaching. Two curricula. One for
absolute beginners (including children) and the
other for those who have studied the Instant Piano
Course or who have some previous experience with
pop chord style piano.
Lodging and meals provided (or you can opt to take
care of that yourself).
Held in conjunction with the Vibo Music Family
camp where you and your family members can opt to
take other courses in topics such as guitar,
ukulele, percussion, dance, jazz vocals, violin,
cello, from a staff of first rate teachers.
Plus you are welcome to participate in family song
night, listen to a faculty concert, participate in
a community band, and an evening jam session. All
of this in a safe, nurturing environment, in a
beautiful, natural setting, just minutes away from
California Wine Country.
I'll get you more information very soon. In the
mean time you can reserve the weekend on your

Here are some of the features of just the Piano
Two Basic Tracks: Beginner and Beyond
The beginner track is for those who know little or
nothing about music or the piano. We also welcome
those who have studied only classical (notation
based) piano and who want to learn the chord
system from scratch.
Goal: To enable the beginner to play any song on
the piano with two hands by the end of camp. (Yes,
you heard that right. Any song, two hands).
The "Beyond" Track is for those who have already
studied the Pianofun Instant Piano method or who
have had some basic background in chord style
piano and want to hone their skills.
Goal: To learn strategies to improve your piano
playing skills and knowledge of chords. We will
also explore many of the tricks, techniques, and
sneaky little secrets used by pro piano players.
There will be a total of eight sessons on just
piano out of the 11 slots the camp offers. There
will be a minimum of two piano instructors, one to
handle mostly the beginners, the other to work
with mostly the intermediates.
Campers are free to combine Family Camp classes
with Piano Camp classes and participate in the
Family Song Circle, listen to the Faculty Recital,
the jam sessions, the ensembles, and everything
else the camp has to offer.
It's actually a great opportunity to learn more
about piano while your kids (or grandkids) take
some really fun music and dance lessons from the
And best of all, there will be NO ADDITIONAL COST
FOR PIANO CAMP. It's all included.
So mark your calendar: July 23 and 24.
