A very useful addition to the owner's manual.
on 23 July 2017
This book is clearly written and user-friendly for beginners, whereas some keyboard owner's manuals can be intimidating at first sight.
Note that the book is about keyboards, not the piano. The difference is in the use of the left hand: before realising this I was disappointed that the left hand is not exercised as much as the right. That said, fingered chords are introduced towards the end of the book.
There is a huge range of keyboards available and this book is a general introduction, so the owner's manual for the particular keyboard used is still needed. However, following the exercises in the book gives an incentive to get to grips with the manual.
Although not overtly American, the book refers to half and quarter notes, etc, with no mention of minims and crotchets. A few words about the alternative nomenclature would have been welcomed.
