Piano lessons available

Long and McQuade in Courtenay is offering a new piano course

Long and McQuade in Courtenay is offering a new piano course designed especially for singers who want to accompany themselves on the piano (or those wanting to accompany a singer).

It is not the traditional method of learning piano and requires no note reading or playing children’s songs or classical pieces.

It will give you the tools to learn any song, transpose songs into any key, write your own songs and sing harmony.

This course will be taught by Andrew Lorimer, one of the Valley Idol producers.

Lorimer has played the piano for 43 years, professionally for the past 30 years, including 15 years with the Canadian rock band Prism, and tours of duty with the Headpins, Toronto (featuring Holly Woods), Susie McGregor, Simon Kaos and Corey Feldman’s Truth Movement (also appearing on The Two Coreys reality TV show).

He performed as Elton John in the Legends of Rock Tour and has done numerous house gigs with bands and as a solo “piano bar” performer.

Call Lauren Sumislawski at Long and McQuade Music Education Centre at  250-334-4885 or e-mail lsumislawski@long-mcquade.com.
