  Jean describing her book of poetry “Sandprints At Ebbtide”   I hope the readers of “Sandprints at Ebbtide” will find these poems, songs and Scripture passages a source of faith and inspiration in confronting the painful life lessons of aging, loss, perceived failures and even death, both for themselves and those they love. Faith guides us to a place of comfort and peace as we reach for meaning and consolation. These poems explore my personal life challenges in the light of God’s grace and redemption. Mother Julian of Norwich summarized all this for me in her still...

Connect with Jean Kuhn: Running your business is no different than running your family. You need a daily plan or everything goes to hell. I became a mom and an entrepreneur at the exact same time, April 29, 1985, at 8:52 p.m. The moment they put that first baby in my arms I knew I was not going back to a J-O-B I hated, so I just started a business. When I gave my notice to the company I worked for, they offered to put a computer in my house (in 1985 no one had home computers), make me an independent contract, increase my pay, put a computer in our home, and let me work from home. I was one...

Scott Houston's Bio:

The way piano is usually taught involves practicing endless scales and etudes, memorizing complicated notation, and focusing on classical music—not to mention the challenge of finding a teacher near you. It's no wonder most folks who take traditional piano lessons either lose interest or become a good sight reader rather than a good player. It's a shame because there's actually an alternative chord-based method that makes piano one of the easiest and most freeing instruments to learn to play!

With this method, new and more experienced players alike use lead sheets (simplified sheet music with letters) to learn the chords and melody of familiar tunes by actually playing them. I didn't invent this method. Heck, I'm not even one of the first people to teach it! But I am the most passionate about using it to help people play recreationally at any age. Throughout my chord-based courses, I focus on popular modern music and break down songs into small exercises, allowing students to quickly build their musical ear and fine motor skills without any notation knowledge. I believe that it's never too late to learn or loosen up your playing, which is why Piano in a Flash can be taken at any experience level, at any speed, all in a flexible online setting built just for adult learners.
