9. Practical Piano Illustrated: Keys, Scales, Chords and Theory for Beginners

Author: by Austin Middleton

View on Amazon

This is an excellent book for beginners of all ages. Colorfully illustrated, the book begins by explaining scales and keys, then moves into chords and chord progressions. The basics of reading sheet music are covered, and the final chapter explains how to construct 12-bar blues type compositions.

The book will prove to be extremely useful to a new student. Keyboard diagrams clearly illustrate all the major scales, the natural minor scales and the blues scales. This leads to several chapters explaining chords, chord progressions and the basic theory behind intervals.

A new student would spend a lot of time researching and compiling all this information. I have attempted to compile all the information that a new student will need. I have tried to strike a balance between what is practical, and useful, right now tempered with an introduction to the larger study of music theory.

This is a book for beginners of all ages. Young students have all the information that they need, older students will find the content fresh and upbeat. I wanted to create a guidebook which was modern and efficient, yet present the material in depth to encourage further study.

253 pages

View on Amazon

Written with the HEART of a fighter! Readers unfamiliar with memoirs will be spoiled rotten by this book. These are quick short chapters with powerful impacts laced in every turn of the page.”At age 14, I ran away, but not from home – because I never had one to begin with.

At school I participated in every sport, club, and after-school activity, so that when the other kids finally left, I could settle in for the night by my locker. I spent my childhood dealing with gangs, drugs, violence, and my mother’s mental illness, but the real enemy was always poverty.”Y.A.

Salimu almost feels too grown-up in this YA memoir as his compelling story occasionally shifts from gripping novel to raw ego, putting the reader right there in the city with him. Salimu’s story is tough to listen to at times, but ROARS of laughter await anyone brave enough to walk in this man’s shoes.

Readers expecting a sad Oliver Twist tale will instead find a confident, talented protagonist who continually defies low expectations and inspires those around him. While there is language, sexual themes, and a full blown rape scene (did he really have to include the police report?
