DREAM THEATER Keyboardist Publishes First Instructional Book
DREAM THEATER keyboardist Jordan Rudess has just published his first instructional book, "Total Keyboard Wizardry", via Cherry Lane Music Publishing (distributed by Hal Leonard). The 144-page book, written by Rudess with assistance by Chris Romero, is described as follows: "Take your playing to the next level with Jordan Rudess, the Juilliard-trained, award-winning keyboardist of DREAM THEATER! Work at your own pace to improve your skills in physical technique, improvisation, soloing and comping with clear, easy-to-follow directions and exercises that create real results. With beginner, intermediate and advanced exercises that cover everything from classical technique to blazing prog-rock solos and beyond, this book has something for keyboardists of all styles. A CD of the exercises is included — played by the master himself, as well as 12 solo-worthy etudes and a valuable appendix with major and minor arpeggio and scale fingerings."
Copies of "Total Keyboard Wizardry" can now be ordered at this location.
