Improvising your own peaceful, relaxing music on the piano may seem difficult for beginners, but it doesn't have to be! Pianist, composer/arranger, educator, and author Mark Harrison gets you into the Piano Zen mood by taking you through all the necessary steps to create your own Calm Piano music. Topics covered include: triad patterns for left and right hands - creating melodies from major, minor and pentatonic scales - using 7th chords in your arrangements and expanding your style with more sophisticated harmony and rhythm. All of these concepts are demonstrated with over 90 accompanying audio tracks featuring solo piano, and play-along backing tracks for the Piano Pieces section at the end of the book.
