This comprehensive introduction to jazz, blues, and rock piano will offer easy-to-understand explanations of music theory, and guide you step by step as you develop your skills. Above all, Piano by Ear will help you to explore and develop your ability to improvise. Rather than focus on written notation, you'll learn to express yourself at the piano by relying on your ear and on your own creative instincts.
Book Three will acquaint you with a number of common chord sequences, which in turn, will help you to play literally thousands of songs. Click on 'Contents' for more details. Only basic piano technique and basic music-reading skills are needed. Includes access to online audio.
