At nineteen it was probably a little late to be learning the piano, but I guess I was quite late to a lot of things. The lessons helped me get closer to Mr. Parker and my real dream of having him conquer me. Read how my mature teacher claims my first time love in rough, naughty fashion, bending me over the piano-stool and serenading me with his lust.
This book begins with an extensive review of the chords and keys previously studied, using fresh and interesting material that will provide enjoyment as well as reinforcement. Particularly noteworthy is the systematic presentation of chords in all positions in both hands.
