Summary Bursting with life and humour, this is a uniquely comprehensive introduction to the piano, designed first and foremost to inspire. Text and illustrations are so perfectly in tune with each other that every page is a treat to explore. With a cast of animal characters showing what they know (and what they don't!), this truly is both informative and great fun. Book and two CDs, with online music, and narration. Part 1: "Why is the Piano So Special?" How the piano works and sounds. 23 music tracks including: Bach - Prelude in C; Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21; Joplin - The Entertainer; Debussy - Clair de lune; Faure - Berceuse; John Cage - Perilous Night No. 6; Satie - Gymnopedie No. 1 Part 2: "How Do I Play It?" A clear introduction to playing the piano. Play along with 12 specially written pieces with "Guide Me" narration option.
