Description: "Piano for Dummies" Book (Paperback) by Blake Neely From Library Journal Instruct: to provide with knowledge, especially in a methodical way. That is, in fact, what Phillips and Chappel of Cherry Lane Music do in this logical, pedagogic introduction to keyboard instruments, music theory, and piano technique. The chapter on the famous?or is it infamous??"Part of Tens" includes information about past and present masters of the instrument, ways of expanding your interest beyond the scope of the book, and tips on finding a teacher. Printed musical examples are plentiful, and an accompanying audio CD is included. This book intends to be fun and funny and succeeds in a vaudeville sort of way. Students are encouraged "to continue to seek knowledge about your instrument long after you tire of the jokes" and told that "piano teachers and method books shouldn't be forsaken forever." The do-it-yourself phenomenon has made the "Dummies" books very popular. This one is particularly appropriate for school media and public libraries.?Janet Brewer, Murray State Univ. Lib., KY Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. Book Description At first glance, a piano may seem like an intimidating instrument that would be very difficult to learn how to play, but despite what your seventh-grade piano teacher may say, playing piano isn't brain surgery. It just takes time, practice, and patience. Piano For Dummies starts at the very beginning and walks you through everything you need to know to turn that oversized hunk of furniture into an instrument that can make beautiful music. If you don't know how to read music, this book explains in friendly, uncomplicated language all the basics of music theory and applying it to playing the piano. And if you've been playing piano for a while ? or took piano lessons when you were a child but haven't played since ? you can pick up some valuable tips to improve your playing or use the book as a refresher course. Here are some of the topics you'll find in Piano For Dummies: Buying a piano: Acoustic versus electronic How a piano works, and how to care for one Left- and right-hand piano techniques Examining keys, scales, melodies, harmonies, and chords Plenty of musical examples to play The history of piano musical styles Advice for piano teachers A Top Ten list of pianists you should know about Piano For Dummies also includes a glossary and a free CD, which includes audio of all of the examples in the book so that you can play along.
