Abstract:

"Now you can master Bach's most beautiful prelude--even if you've never sat down at a piano before! Do you have a piano (or keyboard) and forty-five minutes every day? Then spend the next six weeks with acclaimed concert pianist James Rhodes. By the end, you'll be able to perform Bach's Prelude no. 1 in C major [BWV 846]--no prior musical experience required! Rhodes reveals How to play the piano step by step--how to read the treble and bass clefs as well as sharp and flat notes, and then how to practice--before teaching the prelude in easy, bite-size segments. His method is free of tedious drills, and filled with inspiration: 'If listening to music is soothing for the soul, then playing music is achieving enlightenment.' Before you know it, not only will you have learned how to play one of Bach's most beloved masterpieces--you will also have unleashed your creativity, exercising your mind (and fingers) and accomplishing something you never thought possible. Bravo! Sheet music included, so you can start today!"--Back cover.
