Part 15: Closing

Everyone learns differently, and what “clicks” for some people won’t “click” for others. The Pattern Method helped me learn to play piano when traditional methods didn’t “click” and blended creation with practice. Now I can improvise easily, play along with other instruments, and freely create. All I do is locate the pattern I want to play, lock myself in, and enjoy the liberation only music can provide. I hope the Pattern Method can do the same for you.
