1. What exactly is "Rhythm Piano"? Answer: "Rhythm Piano" is the way the piano is played when you're singing a song. It's not a self contained solo piano piece, but rather the way people play when they accompany themselves singing. 2. Do you need to learn "regular Piano" before you start "rhythm piano"? Answer: No. In fact it's better to start on rhythm first, similar to the way guitar is approached. This course is for the total beginner, or for the reading piano player who wants to learn to play by ear, or for someone who plays another instrument who wants to add piano as a second instrument. 3. Do I have to learn to read music? Answer: No. Learning to read is great, but quite time consuming & tedious. This series does not teach sight reading. This is the easiest way to learn piano, because it's designed with the concept that a human can only truly think of one thing at a time. Thinking about reading & playing at the same time is confusing. 4. Will it hurt me if I want to learn to read later? Answer: Absolutely not. This video series is musically correct according to college music theory. It simply allows you to concentrate on developing the ability to play first. You can take up reading anytime you choose. 5. Will I regret not learning to read standard music notation? Answer: No. Most piano & keyboard players in the popular or "informal" styles of music, don't read, or even know how to read. 6. Is it good for keyboard as well as piano too? Answer: Yes, absolutely. The notes are the same & the music comes out the same. This instructional series is perfect for today's electronic keyboards. In fact, this video is taught on an electronic keyboard & occasionally uses the "organ" mode to illustrate some of the points. 7. Is it ok for kids? Answer: Yes! It is designed for all ages!
