Piano for All - My #1 Recommendation

It's never been easier to learn Piano or Keyboard

Imagine being able to sit down at a piano and just PLAY - Pop, Blues, Jazz, Ragtime, Ballads, even incredible Classical pieces? Now you can.. and you can do it in months not years! Imagine you could learn piano or keyboard without having to spend money, time and effort on traditional Piano Lessons.

I've studied allot of different piano courses in my time and I have to say, not all of them where equally valuable. Granted most course can teach you few decent things but what most people need is a clear structure and focus to keep them on track. Improvement comes a little bit at a time so with a good structure, small new abilities build upon one and other to demonstrate real improvement. Without this direction students often find themselves frustrated at seemingly not making any progress. This is a very common trap and new players will often put it down to such myths as "I have no talent" or "I'm not musical", which of course is never true. As a professional musician and teacher you can trust me when I say, "I know the feeling". On the other hand nothing beats what it feels like when you get on track and start making real improvement.

You can stop worrying about trying to learn and actually start enjoying the music that your creating.

'Piano for all' is one such product that provides a really good direction for any student wanting to play contemporary piano styles. What it does exceptionally well is to lay down a really solid ground work and methodology of piano playing which is invaluable to a wide range of styles. It then goes on to progressively become more advanced, guiding you through a range of piano styles and techniques, building a strong foundation in a range of styles which will have you sounding like a pretty professional musician in surprisingly little time.

Piano for all teaches you the right stuff in the right order.

Using a unique combination of video, text and audio, all accessible from a single e-book, 'piano for all' is easy to use, a lot of fun and will have you playing real music in no time. The 'piano for all' complete course actually gives you 10 multi media e-books, each of which could very well be sold for the same price individually.

The 'Piano for all' Process is simple...

You start with Popular Chord based Rhythm Style Piano (think of artists like Elton John, Billy Joel, Lennon & McCartney, Barry Mannilow, Lionel Ritchie, Coldplay, Norah Jones and so on) which is EASY but sounds amazingly like the 'real thing'. This enables you to achieve a professional sound almost immediately. Once you are sounding great and having a whole lot of fun (which motivates you to learn more) you then expand step-by-step on your chord and rhythm knowledge into Blues, Ballad style, Jazz, Ragtime, Improvisation and yes.. even Sight Reading Classical music

At the moment the 'piano for all' course is also an absolute bargain. For only $39.95 he is giving away his entire collection of multi media e-books, inclusive of 200 videos, 500 audio tracks and a bonus e-book increasing your creative ability. He could easily be selling each book for around that much (many people do), the equivalent would barley cover the coast of two lessons with a private piano teacher. I highly recommend this course but obviously everyone is different. This product is offered with a 100% 60 days money back guarantee. It is defiantly worth checking out so to see more click here.

Improvisation Exercise - 3 Note Pattern Workout

I stumbled across this exercise on youtube. I think this is a really good one to do and can work on a number of levels.

  • Firstly it's just fantastic to do something like this when warming up. Just to get your fingers moving.
  • On another level it is a great way to start to escape the idea that improvisation has to be always governed by the rigged rules of harmony, scales, theory and the like. Something allot of my students that come from a classical background get hung up on. 
  • Finally it's also useful to start thinking on your toes. In this exercise you can play any notes but your also trying to constantly reinvent yourself. A concept invaluable to improve.
This exercise could be take further by trying to vary the directions in which the patterns are played. All in all a great exercise though. Thank you camposmusic.
