More About the Author
I enjoy helping folks learn about chords and keyboards. Most of these folks are adults but I'm really good with kids, as well.
However, I have learned that most folks don't want to be professionals - they simply want to enjoy making their own music in their own way.
Unfortunately, most music teachers expect you will want what your music instructor wants - to be a master of their chosen instrument. After all, there will always be people who give their lives to music, right?
Thus, the real goal of too many music teachers is not the goal of their students. They don't ask what their students want to learn.
I do. It's the easiest way to keep students. I prefer that THEY bring the goals and I bring the methodology to make sure they make it!
What do you want from music? Chances are I've written a book about it by now.

In a nutshell, this book explains music (mostly chord) theory an average, budding amateur musician should know to get the most enjoyment from music. The book is not a comprehensive explanation of all music theory. For example, it doesn't explain how to read musical notation. It confines itself to how chords are constructed and their relationship to different parts of music (melody, etc).
It is slightly orientated to keyboard users. However, the books content is still 99% applicable to other instruments (I play the ukulele).
As I've already written, the main strength of this book is the plain language, easy to understand explanations. That's the main weakness of other music books. Their explanations usually involve jargon which lose the new musician very quickly. For an example of what I'm talking about, look up "chord progression" in Wikipedia.
A major benefit of reading this book is I'm now able to understand other music theory books I was struggling with before.
