Where do I start? I see that you offer a lot of different materials, but I don't know what item I should start with first?

Scott recommends that most of you start with the "The Starter Bundle." This bundle is a great way to begin to play the piano "The Piano Guy Way." It is perfect for a widerange of folks starting with someone who has never touched a piano, to someone who has played as a child but hasn't since then, all the way to anyone who has played piano but is brand new to a approach. So, if you are ready to start playing and having fun at the same time order this bundle today at a significant savings over individual retail prices!

Here's what's in this bundle:

Play Piano in a Flash! Book: Play Your Favorite Songs Like a Pro Whether You've Had Lessons or Not!
Paperback book. 144 pages.

Scott The Piano Guy Favorites and Holiday Songs Fake Book: This is a fake book containing 95 songs that Scott developed specifically as the result of feedback from students and viewers of his TV shows. It was designed from the ground up to be a perfect fit with people who have watched Scott's workshops or television show.

It not only has GREAT piano tunes in it, but it also has chord diagrams for every chord used in a tune right at the top of each page (for the left hand part)!

At the beginning of every new tune there are two sets of chord diagrams, one basic, one more advanced, that show you exactly what notes are in each chord used in the tune. The more advanced charts show you commonly used substitutions that pros use to sound a little hipper rather than playing the basic chords.
It is a terrific educational tool to get you from "A to B" in a logical manner. It is something that makes this book truly unique compared to all other fakebooks.

With 95 of the best tunes pianists play on a regular basis and the larger music engraving that makes it easier to read, Scott recommends this book as a "staple" for anyones music library.

Oh, and one last thing... every tune is in the key of C! That makes things even easier because you'll tend to use many of the same chords over and over which really builds confidence in a hurry.

In summary, here are the main features:
- 95 tunes (with lyrics included)
- great standards and some holiday songs
- large engraving for easier reading
- basic and more advanced chord charts on every page on which a new tune starts
- all tunes in the key of C

Just for Fun Audio CD: One of the best ways to improve your playing is to listen to artist's playing the songs you love and try to imitate it. This is a collection of Scott's favorite tunes played in various styles ranging from slow, lounge style ballads to road house honky-tonk. Some are solo, some are with accompaniment and/or rhythm sections. The lead sheets to every tune played on this recording can be found in the "Scott The Piano Guy's Favorites and Holiday Songs Fakebook" also found in this bundle.
