Scott Houston, host of the Emmy Award-winning public television series The Piano Guy, introduces a fresh teaching perspective on recreational music-making with The New Play Piano In A Flash: 3 Steps to Piano Success.
Following the tremendous success of his original pledge special, Play Piano In A Flash! – which has raised more than $25 million and continues to air on public TV stations across the country – Houston has honed and sharpened his message to an even finer edge in this compelling new show.
|“Scott is at his instructional and educational best as he shares his ‘3 Steps to Piano Success’ with the army of public television viewers hungry for the ability to simply sit down and have some fun playing piano,” said the program’s producer, R J Cavallaro. “He’s made it even easier for beginners to get off the sidelines and get into the game of happy, fulfilling music-making.”|
The all-HD, multi-camera production was shot over four days at Mills James’ studios, and includes new graphical treatments and animations created by the firm’s visual effects group. “There is a lot that goes into a production like this,” said Cavallaro. “In addition to the multi-day shoot and weeks of post production, we handled production of the pledge breaks, resulting in a full 120 minutes of programming.”
