Harry Connick, Jr. Joins Playground Sessions

Share This:

Grammy and Emmy Award winner ‪Harry Connick, Jr. has announced that he will share his iconic piano skills by joining Playground Sessions, the app-based piano instruction software to teach more people how to play the piano. A longtime proponent of music education, 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.

Building on the success of Playground Sessions’ app-based keyboard learning program, which was co-created by music legend ‪Quincy Jones, the company announced a comprehensive partnership with Connick, who has enthusiastically embraced the program as a fun, easy and effective way to learn to play piano and keyboards. Utilizing Harry’s talents and knowledge, the program makes it possible for anyone, even those who have never played before, to have an affordable option to learn from the convenience of their homes. In-app piano lessons featuring Connick as an instructor will be available in early 2019, but anyone can sign up for lessons with the company’s current instructors immediately at www.playgroundsessions.com.

“Music changed my life in every way imaginable, and I’m honored to share my knowledge with a global audience and give back,” said Connick. “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.”
