Office Hours

Event details


Office Hours is an opportunity to get interactive feedback from a professional piano coach!

Beginner/Intermediate: 11am - 12pm PT
Intermediate/Advanced: 1pm - 2pm PT

How to participate:
This show will not be live-streamed, and participants will use the Zoom link provided here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82091355667
Passcode: 88128

This month’s teacher is John Proulx, a jazz pianist, vocalist, and Grammy Award-winning composer. You can catch our interview with him here.

What if I can’t attend?
If you are not able to attend, we will archive these classes on our Shows page so you’ll be able to watch the recording at any time. You can also still participate in the Live Q&AQ&A Submissions, and Student Assessment.

How much time will I have for my question?
It depends on how many participants we have, but we’ll probably set a 5-10 minute timer for each student. Also, you do not need to stay for the full duration of the office hours.

What types of questions can I ask?
You can ask any general music questions, or more specific questions about something you’re working on. Think of it as a mini private lesson!

How is this different from the PWJ monthly Q&A’s?
Whereas Q&A’s are conducted on our show page with questions submitted via the chat window, Office hours will happen on Zoom to give face-to-face feedback and more personalized responses to questions.

Do I have to participate?
No. If you just want to join the meeting and learn from observing your peers, that is fine too!

I can't stop playing by ear.  I need to learn how to read music.  Are there technique/ practice tips that can help me learn to read music?  I know chords and the keyboard.  When I was 7 the nun who was giving me piano lessons kicked me out of class because I listened and then played something different when I returned.  I taught my self how to play multiple string instruments but I always love the sound and emotions of piano.  I'm now 70 and about to retire.  It's too slow working out my own arrangements.  You guys inspire me.  I must discipline myself to learn how to read music so I can learn to play songs like Danny Boy exactly as it is intended to be played through following the sheet music.

Where do I begin, before I'm too old? 🙂
