Summary
The piano is one of the most gratifying instruments to play, and an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of music. From folk melodies and holiday tunes to challenging classical forms or jazzy improvisation, the piano is also one of the most versatile instruments, allowing both melodic lead and harmonic accompaniment. Yet, too many people who want to play don't know where to begin-or believe playing requires too much work-so they miss out on the joys that playing even a simple melody can bring. How to Play Piano is your opportunity to pick up this marvelous skill. Taught by acclaimed pianist Professor Pamela D. Pike of Louisiana State University, these 36 accessible lessons give you the building blocks you need to go from an interested novice to expressive and talented player. Blending music theory and history with hands-on examples and step-by-step instruction, Professor Pike takes you on a journey from learning how to sit at the piano in the first place to inverting chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and much more. The best thing about this course, however, is that it is entirely self-guided. Professor Pike not only guides you through the basic foundations and advanced techniques of piano playing, but she also teaches you how to practice and gives you assignments to work on between each lesson. After 36 lessons, you will come away from How to Play Piano armed with a tremendous skill set and the confidence and know-how to continue your journey for years to come
