    Comments about Alfred Ultimate Beginner Series: Keyboard Complete (Book/DVD):

    This is a excellent tool for learning to play keyboards in a Rock or Blues style (No Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star or Row, Row, Row Your Boat). It is divided into 3 parts: Basic Keyboard, Blues and Rock. The DVD is very user friendly and examples are complete and the repeated slowly so you can pick up the fingering. The book is also very good reference.
    I am an experienced Bass and Guitar Player who wanted to learn the Keyboard.
    I wish they would come out with an Intermediate Level Course.

      Comments about Alfred Ultimate Beginner Series: Keyboard Complete (Book/DVD):

      Fairly simple to follow, but the one (important) thing is the lack of instruction on proper fingering. Still, not bad for an introduction to reading music, proper posture, chords, and scales/modes.
