FOX News stopped by Sonny’s Piano Warehouse recently to interview Sonny on his Piano Yoga Method and here’s what they said,“How long would you need to learn the piano? One teacher says his method will have you playing within an hour. He calls it piano yoga. I’m certainly no concert pianist but I’ve been reassured by pro player Sonny Stancarone, the owner of Sonny’s Piano Warehouse in Bohemia, Long Island, that he can teach even an amateur like me how to connect to my inner musician and be playing the piano in a matter of minutes. He calls his method piano yoga. He says it is based on relaxing and letting go. He says it’s a concept similar to meditation. The trick is you should stay relaxed and try not to think about the actual notes you’re playing. Sonny says what makes this way of learning special is there’s no right or wrong way. We started with the time-honored traditional song of “When the Saints Go Marching In.” And taking those simple musical concepts, we quickly got our groove on.”
