Many of my students are working on "Don't Stop Believin'" in our online lessons. This is a fantastic song to learn on the piano, not only because the riff is so fabulous, but there are many learning skills involved.
I loved The Peanuts and Charles Schultz when I was growing up. My best friend in elementary school knew how to draw them really well, and he also played piano. So I have many fond memories growing up with The Peanuts Gang. (Of course, Schroeder was my favorite!)
Someone put this Journey song to clips of The Peanuts and it is AWESOME! I wanted to share it with you here. I hope you find it as inspiring and uplifting as I have!
Practice your Don't Stop Believin' riff so you can play it as well as The Peanuts Gang! :D
