Hello everyone. Today I thought I'd take a little break from posting about test prep and let you all in on another small part of my life, while providing something that some of you may find very useful.
Many of you know me as an author of test prep books for the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests, and some of you know me as a mathematician. But very few of you probably know that I am also a musician, in particular a piano player.
A few years ago I created a YouTube channel and put up some piano lessons. I noticed recently that my lessons that teach you how to play Fur Elise have become quite popular, especially the first lesson. So I thought I would share that first lesson here. I hope that some of you that are trying to learn the piano find it useful.

For those of you that want to learn the whole piece, you will see that I have eleven lessons available that go through all three movements.
And here is a video of me performing the whole piece:

This is the first time I'm sharing an aspect of my life, aside from test prep. I hope that some of you find it useful.
