While it's one thing plugging in a Keyboard and playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, it's quite another discovering all the possibilities of harmony, chords and counterpoint. The key to being a successful Keyboard pro is versatility. Basic Keyboard Workout offers you a pocket-sized guide packed to capacity with everything the modern working Keyboard-player needs to play and understand to get the best from their instrument.

Beginning with the questions of posture and simple playing techniques, this book then becomes a full theory guide that takes you into the worlds of harmony, scales, chords and rhythms. The tutorials include lessons on:

Starting to read music
Basic rhythms and time values
Major and minor diatonic harmony
Inversions and intervals
Playing and recognising music by ear
Technical skills such as voicings, pedalling and developing your dexterity

A further series of chapters dives deeper into advanced harmony, with unusual and exotic chords, and Jazz-influenced progressions all explained in clear and simple English. You will then find a full and detailed guide to your equipment, including how to set up correctly, using and abusing MIDI, how to work with samplers and sequencers, and much more besides.
Soon you will be armed with the tools to become a formidable Keyboard player with the knowledge to succeed in any musical situation!
