  • Fake Book for Kids - Hard copy ()
    A great way to introduce lead sheets to younger students

    A unique fake book containing a collection of children’s tunes in lead sheet format that can get children playing their favorite tunes quickly and easily! Includes graphic chord diagrams so the student will always know which keys match the chord symbols. I use this with all my younger students. It’s a great tool for getting them used to the jazz concept of interpreting a tune from just the chords and melody.

  • Favorites & Holiday Songs Fake Book - Hard copy ()
    A great way to introduce lead sheets to older students

    I use this with my older students who want to get into interpreting a tune from just the chords and melody. It has 95 tunes in lead sheet format with large engraving for easier reading. 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. A unique feature is that 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.

  • The Next Step ()
    By Bradley Sowash and Scott Houston

    Shows you how to add style beyond the basic chords and melody.

    How many times have you picked up a jazz piano educational book only to find content that was over your head by page three?

    The Next Step is a fun and creative approach to piano playing in which increased knowledge of chords, scales and rhythms leads you to greater personal expression. How much previous experience do you need to benefit from this book? If you know how to read basic music notation and can construct a C, F and G chord, this book is for you.

    I co-authored this book with my good friend, Scott Houston, host of the popular PBS-TV music education series “The Piano Guy,” the book is a practical guide for learning to play piano “off page.” It is also the featured textbook for the adult track of my 88 Creative Keys Camp.
