3.0 out of 5 stars
not great for me, Jun 13 2010
Aside from being able to recognize and name popular songs after a few seconds, I am new to playing the piano and new reading music. Equally, I haven't developed an ear for specific musical instruments and notes.
That being said, this book contains cds with tracks or examples of how the exercises should sound, but, each track seems to have a number of other sounds (instruments and metronome) aside from a keyboard, which is seemingly played at tempos sound different from what I am familiar with...
maybe there are some sort of copywrite issues....but...why would these experts include all the other jazz on the cd for someone just started to learn? why not just start with something simple...and just include the piano? or at least an option
