How to play piano from a lead sheet: Beginner level 1

Cover page - jpeg

Do you want to play pop songs on the piano? Do you find that reading traditional scores with many notes is very difficult?

I have a simpler way. You can learn to read from a lead sheet instead. A lead sheet shows just the basic melody line (a little bit of note reading here) and the chords (written as letters above the melody line). Now the music is easier to read, as the lead sheet simplifies it to the core essentials!

This e-book helps you to read from a lead sheet. It begins with naming the fingers (1,2,3,4,5) and the keys on the piano (C,D,E,F,G,A,B). From there, it builds up skills and knowledge progressively.
