The true artist is not proud.
He knows that art has no limits.
He somehow knows how far he is
from his goal and, while others
admire him, he is ashamed not
to have already arrived at the
place where a greater genius
shines like a faraway sun

-Ludwig van Beethoven
1770 - 1827


 


     In the informal style of a handwritten note to a friend, this book is unique in that its main emphasis is on the scale (major and harmonic minor) but with out the usual distraction of intervals and chords that accompany each scale taught in the more traditional beginning piano books.
     The student is free to focus on the simple, easy consistencies of the scale (afterwhich learning intervals and chords comes much easier anyhow) and develops, early on, a positive sense of accomplishment from the hard work it takes to learn piano. A great start for such a challenging instrument.
     At any age the human mind can appreciate the refreshing experience of learning something new and with piano there is much to discover. Though it takes alot of work, reaching the point of actually playing the piano is a feeling of such satisfaction that words cannot quite do it justice.
     The first step is the interest and anyone curious enough to want to 'understand basic piano' will do well with this book.
