The Piano Guy

Scott Houston has been called “the Pied Piper of recreational music-making.” Since the debut of his highly successful public television special, Play Piano in a Flash! (also produced by Mills James), millions of viewers have been introduced to his motivational and entertaining approach to learning to play non-classical piano.

The popularity of the special led to the creation of Scott’s weekly public TV series, The Piano Guy, in April 2004. One year later, the program became one of the first “how-to” shows to be produced in high definition.

Now numbering more than 180 half-hour episodes, this Emmy Award-winning series has become “must-see” programming for music lovers and recreational music makers across the country. During each episode, Scott is usually joined by one of many talented guest pianists to discuss the breakdown of specific songs, genres, and other piano playing topics.
