You Can Teach Yourself Piano

You Can Teach Yourself Piano composed by Matt Dennis. For Piano. Squareback saddle-stitched, Methods. You Can Teach Yourself. All Styles. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 124 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.94302BCD).

ISBN 9780786644018. All Styles. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

A revolutionary concept in piano instruction. No other piano method comes close to matching this book's scope in teaching not only basic music reading skills, but also the essential technique and theory for playing in all contemporary keyboard styles. Central to the philosophy of the You Can Teach Yourself series, this beginner's book is written to give the serious adult student a solid foundation while studying on their own without the advantage of having a private teacher; it will show you all you need to know to get an authoritative start on the instrument, presenting technical and theoretical concepts as needed while offering carefully graded, challenging material to hold your interest. In addition to the incalculable assets of ear training and development of taste in modern harmony, upon completion of this method the student will be fully prepared to handle the demands of modern piano music. CD is stereo teaching and also includes selected musical examples from the text.
