A Keyboard at Your Fingertips Programme 2

A Keyboard at Your Fingertips Programme 2 cover

This is the programme where you put your hands on the keys and start to play well-known tunes. Penny and Tony talk you through each individual step - hand position, fingering, finding the starting note, setting up the sound, how to pick out tunes by ear - and remember them, adding chords, the lot. By the end of this programme you will have covered Dvorak's Largo (the 'Hovis' tune), Jingle Bells, The White Rose of Athens, Ode to Joy and Now the Day is Over. The beauty of the format is that you can repeat each section as many times as you like, just like having a friendly teacher by your side whenever you want them.
