Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 22, 2008
After proving itself in New York City, the acclaimed piano-in-minutes instruction book "The Rockmaster System" is rolling into Nashville to establish itself in a city that knows its music like no other.
With its philosophy of "Everyone Can Play," and goal of whole families being able to tickle the keys, not just musicians and students, "Rockmaster" will air special TV promotions in Nashville and construct an outreach program to schools and bookstores.
After a year of use as a text book in the toughest proving ground possible, the New York City School System, this revolutionary new book is destined to change the lives of beginner piano enthusiasts and their families.
It uses simple visual cues that will have fans playing popular songs just minutes after picking up the book.
The system is so remarkable that the United States Patent Office gave it an extremely rare music patent. That's unusual for a book, exceptional for a music system and extraordinary in the sedate piano world, where little has changed in teaching in a century.
Using the visual and instinctive way the brain thinks rather than just repetition, "The RockMaster System: Rock Oriented Chords to the Keyboard" from Dellwin Publishing Company and author Winston Harrison is the simplest, fastest way to learn rock-style keyboards.
Harrison said "What I like best about 'The RockMaster System' is that you don't need prior knowledge, just the desire to play."
Most students still toil over scales, theory and technique in much the same way as their great-grandparents before them. Harrison's breakthrough offers a way to be up and performing right away -- the lessons can come later or not at all. The all-ages book is aimed at the 21 million Americans that have a keyboard instrument and the many more who would enjoy playing for friends and family if it was easy to learn.
"Not everyone is interested in learning theory, though the system can also be a complement to traditional lessons," said Harrison. "There is nothing wrong with playing a song while you are learning. It keeps people interested longer and motivates them. Otherwise it can get too boring.''
The system was born of necessity for Harrison. He plays guitar and needed to work out some chord progressions on the keyboard - and an easy way to remember them. The former computer programmer also understood how simple visual references are needed to access the underlying mathematical logic used by both piano and computer. "It is a music formula based on changing chords, you only need to know the first chord, then it is just moving one or two fingers up or down as instructed. You don't need to know the notes, it gives you an 'image' of the chords."
It should be noted that the system is primarily useful for "rock-oriented' piano, where the keyboards supply rhythm (chords and bass) to accompany melodies from vocals, guitar or other instruments. The RockMaster can be used to accompany any music style: country, rock, pop, gospel, reggae, Latin, standards, calypso, folk, blues, etc.
The book is available at online bookstores including BarnesandNoble, Amazon, WalMart and AtlasBooks, or the RockMaster website (http://www.therockmastersystem.com). Harrison is currently working on another how-to book that deals with four-part harmonies.
