Developed by Robin Jarman to enable anyone to accompany songs on the piano without music, change key when a song is pitched too low or too high, and provide accompaniment when only the melody and chord symbols are given. It is ideal for teachers, students, parents, and members of the community who would like to accompany "sing alongs." The book does assume that the student can sing in tune, can read simple rhythm and notation, is familiar with the treble and bass clefs and the piano keyboard, and has a sense of humor and a desire to learn. The accompanying CD talks you through the exercises, providing additional instruction and help. This package also includes the companion DVD which accompanies and teaches many of the concepts in the book.
