Musical leadsheets can be very confusing! Where's the left hand? Why are there capital letters on top of the right hand notes? Why would anyone choose to play from a leadsheet instead of traditional piano sheet music? What is a Fake Book? We will answer these questions and more in this 55 minute class.

A piano or keyboard is required. It is preferable that a keyboard has at least 61 keys. A printer to print the music and handouts before the class begins. I need to be able to see the student's hands on the keys. Usually if the laptop/iPad is placed at a side angle to the keys I am able to see their hands. A chair with a stack of books can be used to prop up the laptop.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
