In addition to music theory, first year piano students are trained in piano performance and artistry. Can you imagine your children playing the piano in your living room, or performing in their first piano recital? There is nothing that warms parents' hearts more than seeing their children engaged in a creative activity that is challenging and beneficial. Why not enroll your child in piano lessons while they are young? You can't make a better investment in their future.

In addition to the 20 benefits above, other rewards of piano lessons are well documented - increased math and reading scores, increased overall educational progress. So don't wait to give your child the benefits of music. You'll be glad you did.

To learn the best way to share the gift of music with children visit for my Piano Bears Musical Stories for Children The exciting Piano Bears Musical Stories for children ages 5 to 11 feature the loveable characters, Mrs. Treble Beary and her new piano student, Albeart Littlebud.

Playing in Style of Fender Stratocaster

Customer Review: insight to signature fender telecaster styles/sounds
this video and the accompanying booklet provide great insight for the beginner or experienced player to the equipment spec's., and details of special tunings, chord-voicings and techniques of the most prominent and enduring telecaster driven superstars. i have not been able to find a second, or follow-up volume to this video (an effort well-warranted). nonetheless, if you're looking for a launching point from which to delve further into the playing of superstars like danny gatton, james burton, johnny lang, albert lee, kieth richards, and andy summers- this is money and time well spent.

I can describe the latest release from Heavy Metal super group Alice In Chains for you with just one word Outstanding!

I wish it werent the case but, its not everyday that I get a CD for review that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just cant force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Dirt. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

Dirt is a pleasantly varied, mix of 13 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly superb musicians. Most of the songs display a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Clearly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.

Overall Dirt is excellent from beginning to end. One of those CDs that after a few listens the songs are just etched into your memory. A must have for the Heavy Metal fan. Really spectacular from beginning to end.

While the entire album is really very good the truly standout tunes are track 2 - Dam That River, track 4 - Down In A Hole, and track 13 - Would?.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Them Bones. Great track!
