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.

I have this book already and have taught myself how to play the piano from it starting at my age of 65. It is a wonderful book for older people. Two more of my lady friends who are in their high sixties are now learning to play piano from this instruction book.  It moves slow with lots of great detail which we need especial if we never had the chance to learn piano when we were a child.

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.
