After 9 – Piano Book

Posted by glenbarkman on October 15, 2009

after9I’ve been teaching for about 25 years.  Funny… my very first 2 piano students who were ages 4 and 7 just contacted me via facebook.  I was just a teenager then working on my performance diploma.  Over the years i’ve had opportunity to teach many adult students.  One thing i know for sure about adults is that they have different demands on them than kids.  Having raised my own 3 children i know that it’s not as easy to get at the piano as as adult as it was growing up.  Presently i taxi teenagers around to various lessons – piano, bass, drum, guitar, voice and dance!  Add to that mix making meals and household cleanup, and you quickly realise that most adults don’t even BEGIN making sound at the piano until AFTER 9PM.  And thus, this book was entitled.  After 9 is a collection of more easy going, easy listening songs.  They’re not aimed at making life complicated but rather simplified and calm.  This is a quiet sit-down at the piano.  Enjoy.
