The Cameraman Steps In To Play (And So Can You!)
I was thrilled to quickly realize after discovering the Pattern Method that I didn’t need years of preparation and practice: I could just sit down at the keys, pick an L-Pattern, and explore (just like our cameraman, Michael Lemley of Michael Lemley Films, does in the video). No, I didn’t instantly sound like Mozart, but I finally knew how to start my musical journey and teach myself along the way. I could blend creation with practice!
