He just signed a deal with playground sessions in app, which is co owned by Quincy Jones. Q how to play the piano is in service that cost ten dollars a month. Let's listen into my conversation with Harry Connick junior here on talking tech all about learning to play the piano. So I'm working you call playground sessions, which I know you're familiar with and it uses innovative technology that I haven't really seen before to explain have a piano works. How reading music works. They also have instructors I'm one of the instructors takes people from. I mean as basic as they possibly gets, you know, talking to people who have never played don't think they can play. Don't think they have any musical ability, all and walks them through some very basic fundamental concepts of playing all the way through some more intermediate and advanced conserve. Sept? So it uses a whole bunch of different ways to to engage people. And I gotta tell you. It's it's extremely coal. It's it's kinda dictating and you kind of learn without realize you're learning. So as it's it's a it's a very exciting new frontier that I'm proud to be a part of in a nutshell is basically giving you numbers for the notes and in knowing that that by C is a one in my e might be three or five or whatever. And just associating those numbers with the notes is that where you begin. That's part of it for sure. But I even go back further map, some people, you know, look at the Pierre. No keyboard and a see, you know, all of those black and white notes, and they are intimidated by that I talk about the fact that there's only twelve of those notes in just a block of notes that repeats, you know, over and over again. And I mean, we go back to to those kinds of basics in in like even people that I know that have seen that particular lesson. You know, you have to assume that. Most people love music almost everybody loves music in most people know nothing about it. And if you have to you have to remember that like when I was a kid, I knew nothing about music when I was three or four years old, and I was experienced I got I got a chance to a lot of exposure to, you know, other than listening to the radio most people don't really know how it works. And if you break it down to a really really primary and fundamental level with the type of enthusiasm and verve that that, you know, somebody like me has I think it's possible to you know, fire some of those synapses in people's brains and get them to think about it in a way, they haven't thought about it before let me quickly ask you the name of my podcast is called talking tech. Are you a tech enthusiasts? You tell me what you bring with you on tour. What are some of the gadgets, you you like to play with? Well, you know, I I love technology. I Greg out a patent on a system of reading music about probably nineteen or so years ago, and we haven't used sheet music on my bandstand, since then a we we have a we developed a software that allows my musicians to read off of the screen in you know, to change on a dime. Really whatever song. I I need him to play. So, you know, people are starting to catch on to that technology in, you know, I'm I write all of my scores on on my computer, so technology plays a really big part in in in. What I do.
