A new book that is revolutionizing the process of learning to play piano. For the Beginner: Learn to play the piano as many do the guitar, by learning to play chords. Learn to read common chord symbols such as C and F and even difficult symbols such as C13b9 or F#11. Plus, with this system, your fingers will gravitate to the right keys, just as easily as when you're typing an e-mail: automatically! For the advancing player: Learn to play with ease from fake-books, jazz charts or popular sheet music; learn "smooth voice leading" and how to make your improvised accompaniements sound sophisticated. Learn the secrets that every improvising musician must know! Can be learned by anyone- You don't need to read music, or know anything about music. The book is well-illustrated and teaches you step-by-step. Just follow the diagrams and feel it sinking in! Never wonder about chords or chord symbols again- You will NEVER have to refer to a chord finder book after you learn the system. You will be able to quickly and effortlessly find any chord effortlessly! Much easier, cheaper and more convenient than conventional piano lessons- If you have no interest in being a concert pianist or playing classical music, save yourself a bundle by teaching yourself to play piano using this book. You will not find this system in any other book. Improve your understanding and appreciation of music- "How to Speed Read Piano Chord Symbols" is loaded with useful and interesting information about how music is constructed. Even if you know alot about music, this is a totally new way to view the keyboard! Actually enjoy practicing- The exercises in the book take you from simple one finger movements to constructing advanced chords such 9ths and 13th -- all clearly demonstrated and explained so that you know what you're doing inside and out. Improve your ear - By learning the system, you will learn to hear how different types of chords and qualities of chords are constructed. These skills will help you learn to play by ear. Imagine playing fun songs like "Fly me to the Moon" or "Beethoven's Fifth Symphony" by ear (OK -- the part about Beethoven may be a stretch!) Finally master what the fun you've been putting off for so long- There's never been a clearer path to that "nirvana" of creating music at the piano. You've been wanting to learn and now is your chance.
