Have you ever wished you could learn to read music or play the piano but just couldn't find the time for all those lessons? Piano on the Net may be just what you need. With Internet access, a keyboard, and this online tutorial by professional composer and musician Clinton Clark, you'll be tickling the ivories in no time at all. Best of all, its free! Users can explore the different styles of music by listening to selections from this composer as well as progress through the lessons from starter to intermediate to advanced. This is a great resource for the music teacher who wants students to practice at home or the parent of the reluctant student who would rather spend time on the computer than practicing the piano.
