What if you could pick up any song you wanted to sing and instantly accompany yourself even if you have never played the piano before and don’t read music?
Whether you are a professional or pre-professional singer who wants to play the piano for themselves as you are preparing for an upcoming show OR you are a music lover who loves to sing and wants to sing and play for yourself or your friends and family, this mini-course is for YOU.
With 5-Day Sing & Play, you will learn how to read a lead sheet, construct chords and accompaniments, and accompany yourself singing any song you want to sing (even if you’ve never played a note on the piano or don’t read music) in only 5 days!
Tell me if this sounds like you:
You are (or want to be) a singer but you never learned to read music. Or you never learned how to play the piano and can’t learn your vocal line on your own. Or maybe you just want to sit down at the keyboard and sing and play your favorite songs for fun.
What if I told you…
…that I could give you all the basic tools you need in order to do all of those things in just 5 days?
That is exactly why I created 5-Day Sing & Play

You’ve got questions!
Do I need to know how to read music?
No! You’ll learn how to do that in 5-Day Sing & Play! We will cover the basics of reading notes on the staff and most importantly, we will cover how to play the chords that provide the harmonic structure of the song to support your singing.
Do I have to have a piano?
No! You don’t have to have an acoustic piano. But you should have at least an electric keyboard. 66 or 88 keys is fine. And if you’re just starting out and you aren’t sure you want to make the commitment, you could also use one of those hip roll-out keyboards. (But by the time you finish 5-Day Sing & Play, you’re gonna want to get your own keyboard so you can play and sing all day!)
I don't have a lot of time to learn how to play. If I did, I would take private lessons. What is the time commitment? How much do I have to practice?
Each lesson is between 20 and 30 minutes. That’s less than 3 hours to reach your goal of playing and singing your favorite songs! That’s it! Beyond that, you can practice as much or as little as you want to.
What equipment do I need to learn to play?
All the lessons take place in your internet browser. So besides your keyboard, the only thing you need is a device (computer, laptop, tablet, or phone) to play the videos.
Do I need to buy any music?
I will provide you with the chord sheets and lead sheets of the music we will work on in the lessons. And beyond that, I will give you a list of online resources where you can find free and paid music so you can find your favorite songs to learn.
Look what our students are saying!
Dr. Zona’s ability to take a ton of information and break it down for you is truly unmatched. Getting to watch her hands as she plays and the notes above the keyboard as she walks you through the different pieces helps immensely.
I would highly recommend this program for anyone looking for instruction from a master. Her knowledge is amazing and her ability to impart that knowledge is unsurpassed. Her enthusiasm is infectious!
Who is 5-Day Sing & Play for?
The Professional Singer/Performer
You are a working singer. You’ve got tons of music to learn. You don’t have the money to spend on pianists to make rehearsal recordings. You need to learn your music on your own.
The Social Media Star
You’ve set your sights on the bright lights – of social media! You want to entertain your many followers with a song, or a set, or an entire livestream. You don’t have the room in your apartment to hire a band. You need to be your own one-person band!
The Avid Music Lover
You sing along with the radio but you’ve always wanted to sing your favorite hits in your living room and make it your own. You long to be your very own karaoke machine and impress your friends while you sing and tickle the ivories.
Are you ready to get started??? This is how it works.
