With clear and easy-to-understand exercises, The Piano Handbook is perfect for anyone interested in learning the piano. It provides fresh material and techniques, and gives brand-new players everything they need to learn and enjoy the piano. This book's innovative tutorial approach to piano covers classical and contemporary music styles in an integrated way. Instead of limiting students to one type of music and one style of playing, author Carl Humphries draws connections between various genres and techniques, highlighting the principles and history they share. Performance, improvisation, and composition are treated as interrelated skills that can be learned together. Featuring a mix of repertoire and freshly composed study pieces, The Piano Handbook demonstrates that learning different kinds of music at the same time can be a positive and enriching experience.

Review: The Piano Handbook: A Complete Guide for Mastering Piano

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

This book moves at a very brisk pace. I find myself absorbing sections over long periods of time and moving through the book in that manner. I would suggest this is a supplemental book for study with a teacher or for a more intermediate player. Read full review
