The Grammy® and Emmy-Award-Winning® Musician
Has a New Mission: To Teach You to Play Piano!
Actor, singer and composer Harry Connick, Jr. is a longtime proponent of music education. He’s partnering up with with Quincy Jones’ education tech company, Playground Sessions – the #1 rated piano learning software and application. Connick will offer lessons to a global audience that both demystifies the process of learning to play the piano, while also encouraging players and showcasing the power of technology to share knowledge.
Utilizing Harry’s talents and knowledge, the program makes it possible for anyone, even those who have never played before, to have an option to learn, from the convenience of their own homes. All they need is the app and a keyboard! Says Connick: “Music changed my life in every way imaginable, and I’m honored to share my knowledge with a global audience and give back. When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time by myself in the practice room, and I would have loved an app like Playground Sessions to be able to learn from professionals and to get a glimpse of their process. It’s the positive power of the internet to be able to connect everyone and have no boundaries to learning.”
Harry Connick, Jr.’s career has exemplified excellence across multiple platforms in the entertainment world. He has received Grammy® and Emmy® awards as well as Tony® nominations for his live and recorded musical performances, his achievements in film and television and his appearances on Broadway as both an actor and a composer.
