Rocket Piano is a combination of teaching aids designed to make you a competent pianist able to play your favourite types of music such as jazz, popular, classical and the blues. This review will look at the claims made to back this product and what it really has to offer.
Rocket Piano (RP) will provide you with a series of three books containing step by step lessons, and demonstrations by video, along with a number of sound files. The idea of the lessons is to enable you to learn in an interesting way that will encourage you to reach whatever potential you may have as a pianist.
The lessons are all easy to follow and everyone should be able to understand them. The idea is that the RP lessons in time will equip you to be able to progress from beginner stage on to intermediate and advanced. RP will enable you to learn several of the classic songs of all time along with some original songs that are exclusive to RP itself.
Another benefit of RP is that it doesn't just give you a grounding in practical playing. You will also learn a good deal about music theory and gain a strong background in the history of piano and how it works. All of this information will help make you a better long-term pianist.
RP will teach you how to practice and explain to you what to practice. This means that even a short period of no more than 10 minutes a day playing the piano will give you more benefit than some people get from hours of practice.
The art of improvisation is not easy to master but this is another skill RP will give you. The idea is that by the time you finish learning through this course you should have a strong understanding of melody, arpeggios, scales, harmony and chords. You will also learn the art of being able to read music from nothing but chord symbols which is a great skill to have.
In all, RP will provide you with the following:Over 12 Months of Step by Step lessons Beginner to Advanced Learn to read Sheet Music Classical, Pop, Country, Rock and Blues Step by Step Famous Song lessons Great for both keyboard AND acoustic pianos
