Piano Savvy for Singers

Tell me if this sounds like you…

You want to improve your piano skills (or gain any piano skills at all).

You need to be able to play for yourself or for your students.

You have spent too much money paying other pianists to teach you music or make rehearsal tapes or play for your students.

You’ve over trying to learn piano skills by watching online videos by people who teach everything about playing except what you as a singer needs.

You’re tired of feeling like you will never be able to play the piano effectively.

You wish there was a way to learn only the specific skills that you need as a singer.

Good News!

I help my students with those same problems every single day.

And if you’re like any of them, you’ve probably had some of the same misconceptions.

Misconceptions like….

Misconception #1: In order to play the piano well as a singer, I have to learn how to play Mozart sonatas and Bach preludes.

The truth: Classical piano music is not the end all and be all of piano mastery. You don’t ever have to play a piece of solo piano music in order to be able to navigate the keyboard like a pro.

It is true that some piano accompaniments look just as complex as a Beethoven concerto, but as a singer, you don’t need to know how to play every single note like a virtuoso. You need how to determine what is most important to play that will support the singing. That knowledge does not come from playing a Mozart sonata. It comes from understanding the harmonic and rhythmic structure of the piece and being able to direct your hands to play on the essential elements.

Those skills can be gained playing ANY genre of music if you have the understanding of the fundamentals. No classical music necessary!

In Step 2: Fundamentals in Piano Savvy for Singers, I cover all the fundamentals that a SINGER specifically needs, and nothing more, so that you can play what you need to play in any genre of music.

Misconception #2: In order to play well, I have to practice the piano for an hour a day or more.

The truth: Yes, you have to practice.

“You practice and you get better. It’s very simple.” -Phillip Glass

BUT, it is not necessary to practice for hours a day in order to become better.

What counts is HOW you practice, not how LONG.

You need to set practice goals and you need to practice MINDFULLY in order for your practice sessions to be effective.

The fact of the matter is you can achieve more in 15 minutes of practice than in 60 minutes of practice if you know HOW to practice.

In Step 4: Mastery of Piano Savvy for Singers, you will learn how to practice and what to practice that will allow you to achieve the results you need to play whatever you want to play.

Misconception #3: I know I can’t play the piano well because I have no coordination between my right hand and my left hand.

The truth: Coordination can be developed and doesn’t have to be hard.

Click Here to Read More...

Developing coordination between the hands requires simple exercises that “trick” the hands and the brain into not getting “stuck” in one pattern. You incorporate different rhythms and different melodic patterns which you switch between both hands and then reinforce with repetition.

But what is also important to keep in mind that as a singer, it is not important to play complex left hand accompaniments. You can drastically simplify the left hand so that coordination becames far less complicated and you can focus on the singing.

In Step 3: Reducing Accompaniments of Piano Savvy for Singers, we cover how to simplify accompaniments so that your coordination issues do not get in the way. and in Step 4: Mastery, we cover practice techniques for devolping coordination.

Misconception #4: I don’t know how to improvise, so there is no way I can learn how to make up my own accompaniments.

The truth: You don’t need the skills of a master jazz pianist in order to learn how to play for singers.

Click Here to Read More...

There is no need to learn improvizational techniques in order to play effective accompaniments. When you are looking at a lead sheet, you are given everything you need – the chords and the melodic rhythm. Playing the chords within a rhythmic pattern that supports the style of the music is all you need.

In Step 3: Original Material, I cover all the options to create simple accompaniments from scratch that support the singing in the style of the music without needing a degree is jazz performance.

Imagine…

There was a way to learn the skills on the piano that you, specifically as a singer, needed in a relatively short amount of time…

You could finally feel confident when you have to learn music quickly.

You could accompany yourself and others and not ever have to pay another pianist to do it for you.

You could actually have the freedom to think about your singing rather than your struggles at the piano.

All of that is possible inside

Piano Savvy for Singers

Who is this right for?

Professional/Pre-Professional Singers

Professional Singer

If you have new music to learn for a show and you have to hire a pianist to create a rehearsal track for you…or you have a hard time getting motivated to practice because you hate singing accapella…or you want to be able to converse intelligently about what you need in a chart with your collaborative musicians…then you need Piano Savvy for Singers. You will gain the skills that will give you the confidence and musical independence so that you can focus on what you do best…SING.

Voice Teachers

Voice Teacher

If you struggle with your piano skills when you are trying to accompany your students or you are spending too much money on accompanists to play for your students, Piano Savvy for Singers is exactly what you need. You will gain the skills that will support your teaching so that you can focus on what your students need without spending so much money to do so.

Voice Students

Voice Student

If you are taking voice lessons, you are spending lots of money trying to improve your singing. But how much time and energy do you spend learning your music and practicing efficiently? Your voice teacher doesn’t have the time to teach you your music. And if he/she does teach you your music, you are not taking full advantage of what they have to offer as voice teachers. If you had the piano skills to learn your music on your own, you would gain so much more in your voice lessons and Piano Savvy for Singers will give you those skills.

Basically this if for you if…

You want to be able to play the piano for yourself or for your students.

You’ve watched some online videos and bought some piano method books but don’t know how to apply these things to the specific skills you need.

You know how to read music but you’re overwhelmed by the technique required to actually play vocal repertoire.

You can play scales and “chord-fake” but you’re overwhelmed by actually playing accompaniments with any level of mastery.

You want an easy, straightforward system to learn how to play the piano in a way that will support your singing or the singing of your students in 30 days or less.

On the flip side…

This is not for you if…

You are looking for a quick fix.

You prefer watching free online videos rather than get real, actionable strategies from experts.

You are ok with paying other pianists hundreds or thousands of dollars to play for you or your students.

You are satisfied with your level of skill at the piano.

Praise for Piano Skills for Singers

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.

Christine F.

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!

Maureen M.

Hi! I’m Dr. Regina Zona

I am an Award-Winning Singer, Master Teacher of Voice, and Professional Accompanist. I became an internationally recognized Opera Singer in my 20s, a Classical Recording Artist with an international record label in my 30s, and an award-winning Cabaret Singer…let’s say, later.

But most importantly, I am a wife, a mommy to three adorable puppies, Max, Annie and Jack and I drink way too much coffee. And if, I’m being totally honest, I don’t even think I really like the taste of coffee.

I have been teaching voice and piano for over three decades, in a thriving private studio as well as in several universities around the country. I am also an in-demand dramatic coach for singers in opera and musical theatre and a stage director.

I know, I know….lots of bragging!

I began playing piano when I was 8 years old. With years of lessons behind me, I had dreams of becoming a concert pianist. But when I was cast as the lead in my high school musical, all that changed. And eventually I realized that opera was my destiny.

In all those years of singing professionally, the one thing I could always count on was my excellent musicianship – I could sight read almost any piece of music, I could learn roles very quickly, and I could hold my own in the most difficult ensembles. And that was all due to those many years of piano study. The piano was the foundation of my musical education.

Dr. Regina Zona, Master Teacher/Creator of Singer Savvy Academy

Why I created this:

There are so many singers out there – extremely talented singers – and I have worked with several of them – who don’t have the musical foundation that I was lucky enough to have. They have to pay people to teach them their roles or their songs because they don’t have the skills to do it on their own.

This is why I created Piano Savvy for Singers. I wanted package up all the skills that would help all singers gain the confidence with their musicianship that I had. I don’t want to make singers into concert pianists. I want to guide them to make themselves into the best singers and musicians that they can be.

And I believe that every singer has the ability to reach their highest goal for themselves…if they are prepared.

Praise for Dr. Regina Zona

You’ve got questions! I’ve got answers!

$547 is a lot of money. I can't afford it.

I totally understand. It is definitely a big ticket item.

But my answer to you is: you can’t afford NOT to get it.

Think about it.

How much $$ have you spent paying other people in the past year for piano services? For example:

  • As a professional or pre-professional singer, you may have had to hire a pianist to record accompaniments or create practice recordings for music you needed to prepare.
  • As a voice teacher, you may have had to hire pianists to accompany your students
  • As an amateur, you have been paying a private piano teacher every week to learn how to play (don’t get me wrong! Private instruction is GREAT and I’m sure you teacher is FABULOUS, but that is a big expense!)

If you learned how to play effectively, you could save so much money on hiring out your musical needs.

I can already play scales and can "chord-fake." Do I really need this course?

Knowing scales and chords is an excellent foundation and so important. But knowing what to do with those tools to support your piano playing as a singer is the next step. In Piano Savvy for Singers you will learn how to take those foundational tools and:

  • Accompany vocalises effectively -Create accompaniments from a lead sheet
  • Analyze a musical score in any style and determine what is most important to play and what can be left out
  • Understand what the best practices are for accompanying a singer
  • Sight-read with speed and efficiency
  • and MORE!

I don't have the time to spend hours practicing the piano and learning songs. What is the time commitment?

You don’t need to spend hours at the piano to learn how to play effectively. And you don’t need to learn songs and piano pieces to become a better player. What you need are specific skills that will support your singing. And it doesn’t take hours a day of practice in order to gain those skills.

Each lesson in Piano Savvy for Singers is between 20 to 30 minutes long. If you mindfully practice the concepts in those lessons for a few minutes a day, you will achieve the results you desire in no time. But the trick is practicing MINDFULLY with specific goals in mind.

Can't I learn this stuff on YouTube for free?

YouTube is an amazing resource and yes, you might find some of these things there for free.

BUT….

What you are NOT getting on YouTube is:

  • All the training in one place SPECIFICALLY made for SINGERS. You get the instruction that will address your specific needs.
  • A Workbook to accompany your lessons that supplement your learning. -Chord Charts created specifically for you.
  • Vocalise accompaniments written out for you.
  • Personalized weekly motivation to keep you on track.
  • PRO Tips from three master pianists/accompanists on how to improve your playing
  • THREE personalized video lessons by ME where I answer your questions and give you advice and motivation to help you reach your goals

AND, maybe the most important thing….

You are getting ME!

Not to brag, but I am an award-winning singer and I have been teaching for over 34 years. And I know the specific skills a singer needs.

I already know how to play chords and a lead sheet because I am taking 5-Day Sing & Play. Do I really need this course?

You have indeed learned A LOT in 5-Day Sing & Play. And that is invaluable knowledge!

But there is SO MUCH MORE to gaining the proficiency that you need. Playing chords is just one aspect.
