It is no secret that the majority of piano owners, in addition to playing classical music, would also like to play popular standards and pop songs, just like the piano player in a bar or cocktail lounge does, improvising and going from one tune to another. How nice it would be if one could sit down to the piano at home or at a party producing all those lovely melodies by ear.
Unfortunately, up till now there has not been a single useful method that teaches how to acquire this ability; one that is written in a simple manner, and starting from the basics.
Here, finally, you hold in your hands an absolutely new and simple method that will enable you to fulfill your secret wish to improvise at the piano, completely by ear. I have the feeling that one of these days, everyone who owns a piano, a keyboard instrument or a synthesizer will own this book.
