Richard Bosworth has spent the last 10 months preparing for the lesson, which will be taped on Sunday (Oct. 9) and broadcast on the web on Oct. 16.
Although the lesson will be geared to all levels of music ability, the folks who watch wont actually learn to play something like, say, Chopsticks.
Instead, Bosworth will play Chopins Andante Spiniato in G & Grande Polonaise Brillante in E flat, Op 22 and demonstrate how a classical pianist prepares for a performance and the decisions that go towards how he or she plays the music.
Bosworth doesnt know how many students will attend his world record piano lesson but admits hes getting an adrenaline rush thinking about it.
If all goes well, Bosworths lesson will be the start of a series of other webimentaries that he hopes will stop the invisible separation that classical music gets from popular culture.
