Without pianos, horror movies would be bereft of plinking melodies, thunderous crashing noises, and scenes where evil pianos come to life and gobble unwary pianists. Write your own soundtrack with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get two one-hour lessons from West Side Piano in Marble Hill (a $150 value).
West Side Piano instructor Emil Vajda has studied piano performance his entire life, perfecting his chops with a Juilliard grad and concert pianist. Under his instruction, piano pupils will learn how to finesse delicate white keys, enigmatic black keys, and resentful foot pedals. Students of any musical ability are welcome, from regular recitalists to toy-piano virtuosos. Lessons can be held either at West Side Piano’s Marble Hill studio or in your personal piano-filled mirror maze. Learn myriad piano fundamentals, including basic chords, helpful scales, proper hand positioning, and more.
