Keyboard Fundamentals Illustrated presents the important rudiments of keyboard study in a visual format that simplifies the learning process, increases student comprehension, and makes practicing more efficient. Though designed primarily to assist students enrolled in college group piano courses, the text also serves effectively as an instructional tool for students who study piano on a private basis.

Included in the book are keyboard illustrations of all the major and minor pentachords, major and minor scales and arpeggios (presented both hands separately and together), and the standard cadence pattern I-IV64-I-V65-I. Notated examples accompany these. Also included for reference is an illustrated chord dictionary and an introductory section that explains the essential concepts in a clear, concise manner.
