I Always Wanted to Learn This

I just love the way Mark Harrison teaches. He's so good at picking fun material and breaking it down into small, easy to learn segments.

I've admired other keyboard players pounding out these left hand patterns and now *I* can play them. It's very rewarding.

I now buy anything Mark Harrison writes without hesitation. He's my favorite music author hands down.
