Presents piano theory with technical and creative ideas to enhance your keyboard knowledge and improvisation skills through practical approaches and applications. To benefit most from this book, you should already be comfortable with reading notation on the grand staff and should have an understanding of written rhythms.

Through these lessons, you will discover how to become a more creative player with chords in a rhythm section setting, going beyond just playing what is written on the page. You will also learn how to utilize scales in improvisation. This book has been designed to help beginners and intermediate students build a strong foundation and enlarge their horizon, and to help advanced players fill in gaps in their skills.
