Product description

(Piano). If you have always wished to play like Elton John, Bruce Hornsby, Stevie Wonder or Alicia Keys, then this book is perfect for you! This is possibly the most useful textbook for all budding rock keyboarders. For beginner to intermediate level players who want to have fun while further developing their performance skills, this book shows what it is all about. Chord playing, rhythmic confidence and instructions for improvisation with systematic exercises and songs form the focus of this first volume. The book comes with a CD which contains all the pieces within the volume. This facilitates the understanding of theoretical terms in the book, such as phrasing, rhythm and accentuation.
