Learning to play keyboard is not about studying---it's about playing---so it should be FUN! If you're looking to rock out, do you want to spend hours trying to figure out how to read music, and then tinker away at Go Tell Aunt Rhody? We didn't think so. No, we think you should play right away. Start with warm-ups and cool rock patterns, then move on to playing chords and melodies. Finally, learn to read music and play scales, rock licks, and fun tunes. In short, this is not your dad's piano method. Pick up that keyboard, open this book, and PLAY!
