Perhaps he’s not local? Bought this after watching a few You Tube lessons from a good teacher.

By the time I get through this book, I will know scales and play them with reasonable proficiency. I have played the accordion for years but always wanted to play the piano.

With the scales, chords, etc. There’s some well-written material at the front of the book as well. This is the best book of scales that I’ve ever run across and I filerype it to anyone needing srpeggios a book. I just started taking lessons a month ago and my teacher has me working on basic stuff, which is normal for her older beginning students. But I wanted more.

I highly recommend this book for someone who isn’t content to just learn to play well enough to play from the beginner books, but who really wants to learn to play the piano.

I am 54 and want to understand music theory.
