The Visual Piano


书本简介 About the Book

There are 3 key takeaways from this book:

  • An unconventional approach to learning the piano
  • Able to instantly recognise any interval by sight
  • Using symbols only to play the harmony

Playing music is a human activity that uses almost all sensory functions; from auditory, visual, kinaesthetic / tactile, affective to cognitive.

The concept here is simple: master the intervals, associate symbols with the intervals, and you would be able to play the chords you desire in any key on the piano.

While rhythmic and other musical aspects are not emphasised, it does not mean they are not important; the graphical and logical approach is heightened to get you up to speed.

Packed with diagrams, examples and exercises, the well-illustrated book walks you through the concepts so you may apply them directly to your playing. Ample video resources can be found at the accompanying website
