piano course aimed at beginners. It has a huge amount of stuff in 10 ebooks for the very low price of $39.95.
The basis of Robin Hall's Piano For All is "rhythm style piano" - or "party piano" - teaching how to play accompaniment to songs with chords, and the student will enjoy the immediate satisfaction of being able to play something that works.
The rhythm style piano is exemplified by that of The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Coldplay, and many others, with the piano playing chords in the "pulse" of the song. But rhythm style piano can also be 50's rock like Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock, or the famous Fats Domino version of Blueberry Hill.
All of the 10 parts of Piano For All are in pdf format with audio and video clips embedded in the page. You have to be online to hear and see them, though - they are not downloaded to your hard drive.
With Piano For All you will learn all of the piano rhythms suitable for popular music, and after the foundation is laid down from books 1-4, the piano course goes into more advanced playing styles, ballads, jazz and advanced blues. Book 8 is about taming the classics, learning to read sheet music and practicing classical pieces.
You'll get to book 9 before you are introduced to practicing scales! And although that's basic stuff to become a really skilled pianist, I think it's clever to put it this far in the course. Most Piano For All students will probably not get this far anyway, but stay content with the party stuff. And they will get full value for their money at that!
Piano For All's 10 ebooks includes a huge repertoire, and no. 10 is a resource book with song suggestions (and which rhythm to play), reviews, list of piano websites etc.
All of the content in Piano For All is minutely described on its website.
