The Hal Leonard FastTrack Keyboard 1 series is an exciting, new way to quickly learn how to play that keyboard you just bought, or have had for a while. It’s a fun, easy-to-follow approach, and best of all, it gets you playing fast!

Skeptical of typical method books and videos? We think they’re kind of boring too. That’s why FastTrack is different than the rest. Before the end of this video series, you’ll be familiar with chord progressions, scales, blues riffs, and much more.

Each FastTrack video series is filmed in high-definition and features on-screen music with tons of full-band examples. It’s like having a private lesson that you can pause, fast-forward, and rewind any time you want.

What’s better, the last section of all the FastTrack series (Bass, Keyboard, Drums) features the same three full-length songs, so you and your friends can form a band and jam together.

So sign up for the All-Access Web Pass or get the download, power up your gear, and let’s get you playing Keyboards… Watch “FastTrack Keyboard 1” today!

Good start up

The lessons where short and sweet covering the basics. I wish it went into a little more detail on the actual notes, but going back to review was easy. Thanks for the lesson Abbie!!
