This unique audio-visual course provides all the guidance and information you need to develop basic keyboard skills from scratch, or perhaps for those who took piano lessons as a child but whose skills have long since lapsed. Exercises are shown diagrammatically by way of over 1,000 computer-generated examples, many of which can also be heard on the accompanying 54-minute CD. By the end of the course, the reader will have a thorough grasp of fundamental keyboard theory and skills - enough to be able to work through several demanding classical and jazz solo pieces, which are also included. With a foot firmly on all musical bases, Total Piano Tutor is the only tutor that the fledgling pianist ever needs to buy.
