The first, A Philosophy of Music, deals with communication, cause-effect principles and practice disciplines. The second section, Mechanics, covers all the basics of keyboard music and playing (notation, harmony, improv, sight reading, etc.), as well as their applications. The third section, The Business Scene, contains guidelines and industry advice for contemporary keyboardists. Section four, Interviews, provides insights into the artistry and technique of famous players such as Herbie Hancock, Henry Mancini, Edgar Winter, Keith Emerson, Paul Shaffer and many more.
