    Hey Rod,
    I am going through your music fundamentals book for the third time. It’s amazing how much information you have packed into 111 pages. I really like the way you use intervals to explain music. I think that it transforms my piano from an instrument that plays sounds to an instrument that speaks and expresses a language in which I determine the message through understanding intervals. I think one of the other great qualities to this understanding is that the intervals are the same for every scale so I don’t have to memorize every note and chord, I only have to have the understanding of intervals expressed in your teaching. I’m looking forward to the release of your full course. Thanks much!

    Joe

    Gracias Rod, muchas gracias por ese gran libro, siempre a sido una pasión tocar el Piano para mi, desde pequeño me a llamado siempre la atención, pero por falta de tiempo nunca pude asistir a clases de Piano, asi que solo toco de oido, y este libro me esta enseñando mucho aunque me cuesta por la sencilla razón de que desconozco muchas cosas, espero que me sirva de ayuda y poder avanzar todo lo que no he podido en estos años gracias a tu libro, de nuevo te doy las gracias, un saludo. Txema.

    yes ! thanks and I am very pleased to find this sight.
    I appriciate the great job. It feels like finding a compus in the middle of jungle. It is fundamentals,but exciting and promissing. I have to confess the first book of fundamental music I bought in the university class scared me off. i tried the best I could and finally droped the music course. With this fudamentals,So far I have learned and would like to see more…
    Thanks sudabeh

    I’ve been playing music for 7 years, but have only been playing piano self taught for about a year, so I thought that this book would probably be helpful.
    I never thought to look at scales and chords as being made up of intervals. It’s starting to change the way that I think about playing. I can’t wait for the next lesson!
    Thanks so much!

    Very good book. I’ve just started trying the piano (actually, an yamaha keyboard…) these last 2 days, and the book helped me a lot more than most places I’ve found searching around the web. If you read it by the side of the piano, the explanations works very well. If you draw the chords and intervals on staves to get the hang of keys positioning, the better =).

    I am reading this book together with zebrakeys lessons.

    I have to be very honest here. When I first started reading the free 111 page ebook I was skeptical. I am very impatient when it comes to learning new skills; “I want to be a pro NOW!!” The first topic of intervals I just couldn’t get my head around. But persevering has shown me how important perseverance is. I have never had piano lessons but have always wanted to learn. I can see how your method actually really does work. I have no musical knowledge but this ebook is giving me insight already.

    Thank you!! 😉

    Hi Rod 😛
    Many thanks for your Music Fundamentals ebook. I began to play piano again this past 9 months after 36 years of break!!! I have made very slow progress because of lack of knowledge of what I should start with. Knowinh only the positions of lower and upper C on the keyboard I started to try plying extremely difficult music like “One man’s dream” of Yanni. But I had quickly give up when I could not put my both hands in operation!!! 🙁 Now I know it was not the way I should start with. After studying your ebook I do realize that the music does not need to be so difficult, but it will take some time to me to master it and understand it. Thank you Rod!!!

    I thik this is a great concept. I have been trying to learn how to play the piano for years. I have even taking courses in college and from other music instruction, and to this day I still can’t play. I know the cords, keys, and all the technical requirement, but still I can’t make it sound like music. The only thing I would point out or wish you would have included, is sound so you can hear the how it sound. Other than that, it’s great!!!

    Hi there.

    I just read your Music Fundamentals book. It’s amazing! A few years ago I learned from another book, which said about different chords: majors, minors, sevenths, suspended, diminished… While majors, minors and sevenths were easy to memorize, all others seemed a little messy. Now it’s much easier to play them.
    When I explored the transcriptions of some jazz masters I was always wondering how did they put it all together. I’m beginning to understand the way they play.

    It would be great if you would show a process of reading songs (of different styles) from a song book with chords and building up interpretations out of them. You see, whenever you teach theory, you should also teach to apply that theory, otherwise it’s useless.

    I’m looking forward to see further lessons of yours, thank you! Going well, keep up!

    Hi Rob, thank you very much for the 111 pages of valuable basic piano fundamentals that every musician should know to really understand the language and the secrets of music performance and composition. I have been playing sax fro along time now but as I read your piano encyclopedia I’m becoming to the logic behind music and that musicians are not born-but are made. I’m beginning to see the light and getting wiser and wiser everyday as I practice on the piano your lessons. I’m a South African who is now living in Ireland and studying music. With best wishes in 2011.

    Hi Rod,
    I do want to appreciate you so much for your free e-book lessons.In Nigeria, there are a lot of tight guys who know how to play but are oblivious of the facts of Piano. I understand the interval and chords so well and i have started practicing them in my Piano. I cannot really figure out how to use interval to create scales. I would love you to work on that on your upcoming e-book release . I want to assert this; You guys are the best. I have introduced my friends to this book and your website. Thanks.

    Hi Rod I have just done the first lesson and I am understanding what you have explained, thankyou so much.
    I played both piano and violin but have had no musical instruments for years but felt I needed to this and have great pleasure inplaying again, I am going 70!!!!!
    Already I am making progress although forgotten more than I learned many years ago.I bought a double keyboard but think I should have tried to ge an upright piano, funds are tight, but hopefully it will hapen anyway.
    I can see that I am going to play wellif I follow your instructions,
    I am thrilled with your free book it makes more sense than the rest of the “instruction I have”.
    Will keep in touch and down the road will hopefully be able to buy the digital home study lessons, we are pensioers with a very limited income.

    Fantastic information Rod and making sense to me. I was astounded when using the cord book how they made more sense than any tutor has in the past.
    I learnt to play as a child but haven’t played in 50 years, now going 70, I am having fun learning all over again.
    Your information in both books are fantastic, even my husband asked how I was able to make such a difference after I read, played and re-read the information.
    I have been working on it 2 hour a day, as I have a disabled husband, but he is enjoying watching me make some headway.
    Thankyou so much,

    Although not a piano player, I’m interested in how learning at least the basics might help in songwriting and arrangement.

    On first read through, and with some practice at the keyboard, I find that what always seemed impossibly complicated can be broken down into understandable (and therfore learnable) principles. Hopefully this might be a spur to greater creativity.

I always wanted to learn about the logic behind the piano sounds, but I couldnt find anywhere or anyone who could truly help me. BUT YOU WERE THE ONE !!

    I’ve been playing music for well over 50 years, starting as a lead guitarist in an amateur rock ‘n’ roll group… I’ve composed music of a specific type for relaxation background and therapy (which I seel from my website). BUT I didn’t really understand at a deep level what I was doing and why it was taking me such a long time to get a new piece right. Now I’ve read the ‘Fundamentals’ book, it’s like somebody turned on a searchlight – I found it exciting, liberating and inspiring to at last UNDERSTAND what I’ve been trying to do! There’s no other way to say it: it fills me with joy!

    Rod,

    Your book music fundamental is really good. I like ur one sentence “Music is a balance between tension and release”, which is the building block of ur writing. …But I think the book can be shortened because there are so many repetitions of same concepts like interval, chords and scales in difference places. But the ease with which the book is written is really good for any beginner like me. My current problem is understanding sound of actual music properly and identifying the relevant key to start improvising.

    I am 69 years old, when I was young I had piano and Accordion lessons, I have always loved music and have a pretty good ear for it, I recently acquired a decent key board, and even at my age decided to learn to play again, it is surprising how the fundamentals come back, ” like riding a bike” Your lessons are great, I hope I can keep at it, seems my main problem is getting my brain and left hand connected, having a lot of problems with cords.

    With no knowledge of music, I found your book an interesting introduction. I am beginning to take lessons (start next week) on a 53 (I think) key electric piano organ with three chords built in. Your book explained just what these chords are and why I need to use those three keys. After a few lessons, and a 70-day cruise in Sep-Dec., I’ll probably be in a better position with more understanding. At that time I]ll buy the self-study course and maybe a fullsize keyboard. I’m going to be 80 in August, and this is on my bucket list. I’ve already been practicing the five-finger exercise from the video.

Again, thank you for the great ebook as a reference guide.

Thumbs up to you guys for the great work. 🙂 In as much as I’m not trying to pick holes in your efforts, for a beginner like me, I need something on fingering techniques. I’ll so much appreciate it if it can be included in subsequent editions.Once again I say a big thank you guys.

    thank you very much for your free book, i gave all my time to it the whole of October. with the piano in my room now i can play more keys and songs perfectly.. i played jonh legend’s ordinary people and i was so happy. 3 days back i started scoring a song by Don Moen and today i was teaching the song to the choir. thank you very muchfor your free book it helps. i now understand how to make chords not to memorise them.

    Though I have been playing for quite some time there were things that I just didn’t understand , and like you said was too embarrass to ask . However your book cleared up a lot for me and gave me a new way at looking at what I was doing and understanding what I was doing. Thank you so much , it’s not often something so valuable is given away . Bless you and your staff……Micheal

    Rod, thank you so much for the Music Encyclopedia. I couldn’t have found this web site at a better time. I have been playing/interpreting piano music for years and did not understand how one thing related to another…just interpreting what I saw on a sheet. Recently, my pastor appointed me Minister of Music at my church and also asked me to start a music class for children ages 6-12. I really doubted my self. I found your site about a week before the first class and decided to start the class using your approach. The first class went extremely well. I’m also using the course to improve my musical knowledge and performance. Thanks again so very much.

  68. I am a little confused. Rod stated he would be sending a password which never came. This book is fantastic and easy to understand. However with limited income being a 77 yr old greatgrandmother I cannot afford the course. I have tried all the online courses but still am learning the basics of my Yamaha PSR E413 my children gave me Christmas two years ago. Your course seems more complete then any of the others I have purchased. One of them I had to buy more music to play the notes and another ended up costing more and more to use it.
    Thank you for your compassion and interest in my desire to relearn the piano with my electronic keyboard.
