About

Grammy Awarding-winning recording artist Dionne Warwick discusses how the simplicity of The Weitz Method contributed to her ability to learn to play piano quickly and easily.

Hello! I’m Andrew Weitz, and I believe that within everyone is a talented musician waiting to be uncovered.

My philosophy is simple: everyone should have the opportunity to learn piano without sacrificing large amounts of time or money.

When I started as a piano teacher two decades ago, my goal was to educate as many students as I could with my unique method of learning. Now I need your help to bring 'The Weitz Method' to students worldwide, via downloadable video lessons. Choose your package now!

 

Choose The Songs You Want To Learn

As a professional musician with over 20 years of experience teaching and performing, I know that a passionate interest is the most important part of learning a new instrument.

  • 'The Weitz Method' works by breaking down each song into simple notation using familiar shapes. No need to spend hours learning how to read music! 
  • 'The Weitz Method' gives you the freedom to learn the songs you choose immediately. Say goodbye to the typical beginner tunes and hello to your favorite pop melody. 
  • With the funds to purchase song rights, 'The Weitz Notation Library' has the potential to grow exponentially. Choose your rewards package now!

What Makes 'The Weitz Method' Different?

  • Your subscription will give you access to a diverse library of hundreds of songs already programmed in 'Weitz Notation', with more added every day.
  • Your skills will constantly evolve as you dive into new material. 
  • The freedom to choose your pace makes 'The Weitz Method' different than any other digital music course.

The final ingredient to 'The Weitz Method' recipe is you! Together, we'll make a great team. Choose your reward today, and be on your way to discovering the gifted musician in you.

 

 

  

Risks and challenges

Challenges:

My goal is to provide students with materials they can access any time they choose. To accomplish this, I'll need:

1. Song rights to a variety of current and former hits from a variety of music genres to build up the Weitz Method Song Library.

2. A website built to house the Weitz Method Song Library so that students have the freedom to download what they want, when they want it.

3. Budgets for advertising, site maintenance, and Library Updates.
