You can sound like Thelonius Monk, Art Tatum, Herbie Hancock--and you'd love to sound like them. But, you can't become a great keyboardist without becoming a good one first. Once you have those skills, the whole world of music opens up to you-and then you can partake of the infinite possibilities provided by modern technology: the fundamentals of MIDI programming and sequencing, digital sampling, and computer hard disk recording. Start by developing your command of the keyboard. Then try different music styles from classical, pop, and jazz, to programming modern up-to-the-minute dance music like garage and techno. A 12-lesson music course takes you from absolute beginner to expert who's able to complete pieces of music. Best of all, by studying the basics of traditional piano theory you can easily apply your knowledge to the modern-day MIDI keyboard--the central instrument of the contemporary music scene.
