Talk The Language Of Music With The Keyboards; Volume One

Language Of Music With The KeyboardsA 64 page book for AUD$20 [digital copy] including postage and a FREE Cd of original music used in the book.

The first of two volumes on the Keyboards, this book will help the beginner and those who play 'by ear' to understand the theory of music as it applies to the Piano and any other keyboard.

You will learn to play by reading music, but also to adapt what is written to how YOU want, or are able, to play.

The incomplete first edition can be obtained by request in digital format. Simply EMAIL US TO REQUEST COPY

With conventional music tutoring I was losing my ability to "play by ear" but with Lyle's style of teaching I learned so much about music theory without losing that natural ability and the additional knowledge helped me become a better piano player, able to learn new pieces and play alongside other musicians more quickly and easier.
