    Okay, but it misses the mark for me

    This book promises a friendly entry into the world of piano, but presents some problems. For example, if you ask a pianist about 'shift technique', he will probably think you bought a new VW. Of course you can read and find out. But no one else will know what you are talking about. Maybe the pedal. Maybe moving your hand from one position to another. Maybe a shift of chord position? And a 'left hand fill' is something you could take a guess at, but if you check on the word 'fill' in a music dictionary, it's just not there. Of course, you will find that these terms are explained, but you will also find some contrived terms. Piano is far more accessible than most people think, but why learn with 'pretend' words when there is a large and universal vocabulary that's been around for centuries? It's like dicsussing 'wheel turning technique' in that VW instead of 'steering.' Otherwise I liked this book.

    Learn to Play Good Music Quickly

    About 2 1/2 years ago, I purchased my first electronic keyboard, and was intent on learning to play the thing on my own. Luckily, I discovered The Complete Piano Player Omnibus Editon. Through this book and a lot of hard work, I learned many songs from many musical styles. Each new song presents significant challenges, but the book is easy to understand. I highly recommend this book, especially for the beginner. You will be amazed how fast you can learn the piano/electronic keyboard using this book.
