Learn to play the piano under the tutelage of the most forbidding looking Big Brotherish instructor EVER

July 11, 2012

Perhaps Professor Louis Ruben was a kind, gentle, bespectacled man, a generous giant who passed his love of music on to subsequent generations. Or maybe he was a knuckle-rapping tyrant whose resemblance to Orwell’s Big Brother is anything but coincidence. Your guess is as good as mine.

Anyway, if you want to take a break from your no-effort workout regimen to learn the piano with little to no effort, it sounds like the Rhythmagraph method is right up your alley. THE UNATTRIBUTED BLURBS OF PRAISE HAVE CONVINCED ME.
