I've been playing for years now but never really learned scales and chords, not for my teacher's lack of trying. (I have many books on scales and chords.) A friend told me to get this book. Maybe I was just ready to learn them, but I think this book helped me immensely. I like the way the scales are printed along with the fingering made a little light blub go off in my head. Chords are broken down so you can practice. I liked this so much, I purchased another for my niece.

This book is the best book for beginner that I've seen before. I wanted to get a book for scales because I am beginner level. But you know, if you understand everything what this book shows, your music level and understanding will have changed completely. Although it is cheap and low pages, you would get every knowledge that you should know. I was in Boston this summer(2000) going to school college of music Barklee. And one of my friend told me that I should use this book in the begining to play piano. And I liked very much, but I forgot to copy thi book, so since I came back to Texas, I realized that I need the book. I asked my friend to copy the book, but he was like just get it in music store. So I went music store, but they don't have one, and comparing to the books in the store, this book is the best! I realized so. Now I'm getting this book in Amezon .com If you are beginer in playing piano, this is what you need, defenitely. I wish I could get this book ealier.
