Piano Styles For Beginners Book (With Audio)
Piano Styles for Beginners is a perfect introduction to playing in blues, boogie-woogie, gospel, funk, and pop ballad styles. You'll start playing authentic chordal patterns and rhythmic grooves right away, using the downloadable play-along audio tracks. Each track features a piano demo and a rhythm section recorded on separate channels so that you can play along with the band. The tracks, in combination with Mark’s easy to follow instruction, give the player a great foundation for improvising in each style.
Each chapter in this book is derived from a volume in our best-selling Beginner Piano E-Book series. These E-Books have now been combined into this single beginner-friendly print book, with online audio access included!
