Indiegogo campaign launch!

Hello Fundamental Keys fans! I have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to help me raise funds for the future of Fundamental Keys. Please read the info on the campaign page for all the particulars, and help out any way you can. You PianoWorld people: please let people know about it over there! In fact, share the campaign with anyone and everyone you know who might be the least bit interested in classical music education. Let’s make this a big success so I can get the videos done right this time — and done quickly. I’m excited!

    Congratulations – another big step! I’ve selected the $150 books/videos perk and will help to spread the word.

    Hi Rachel,

    If you have time post some comments in the Piano World thread regarding this campaign (it’s in the adult beginners forum), I think it would be helpful.

    I hope you get enough support for all 3 books and videos!

    • Thank you! I’ve stayed away from Piano World because I don’t want to be accused of just being there to advertise myself. The management and longtime members are very sensitive to that sort of thing. If you are active there, please encourage people to come check out my blog and ask me questions here or by email! Many thanks…

    Is there a way to see the Table of Contents for the already published Book 1 ? The Amazon preview just has the Preface page. And if possible the Table of Contents for the Books 2 & 3.

    • I don’t have a table of contents made up, but this is an excellent idea to have this available. I will work on something and post it tonight!

    • Here you go! http://fundamentalkeys.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Book1TOC.pdf

      As for Books 2 and 3, there isn’t a TOC yet. These books will include approximately 75 classical pieces of progressive difficulty. They range from very simple 8-measure works of Türk (just quarter, half, and whole notes) up to Clementi Sonatina in C and Burgmüller Arabesque in A minor. It is the same scope of my original edition but will have more pieces, and more theory and music history information. What I do is arrange the pieces in the order that makes sense to me, and when a new concept needs to be taught in order to play a piece, I include an explanation of the concept and a short exercise to practice the concept.

    • BTW, if you log into Amazon, it will show you more pages from the book so you get a sense of the format.
