I’m very excited to announce the Release of Pyramind’sMusic Theory, Songwriting and The Piano‘ book published by Alfred.  I am a contributing author for the book and also appear on the DVD ådemostrating piano practice techniques and exercises along side other video tutorials by Jordan Rudess (Dreamtheater, iOS Music App Developer) and main author and Pyramind CAO Matt Donner.   The book focuses on rhythm training, major scales, triads, harmonization, important chord progressions used in popular music styles, chromatics, understand the circle of fifths, sevenths chords and an introduction to modes.  I consulted with Matt Donner and contributing author, jazz musician Anthony Peterson during the content and structure of the book and later wrote piano exercises for each chapter that have become the ‘Chops Tests.’   There are beginning and advanced ‘Chops Test’ depending on the experience of the reader with piano skills.  It’s a very clear, concise read that makes music theory accessible to anyone.  I’m very happy to be a part of it!
