Wish the playing was better

Would you listen to Keyboard Conversations again? Why?

Quite surprised from such a musician to hear such a poor performance. Very blurry and heavy, many times banging too. To be honest, I do think the info is great especially for young kids, but I will save the money and not buy more from him.

I Take Back What I Said

I take back what I said in my previous review about this being too short for a whole book credit. Yeah, it's short, but it's really great and more than worth it. Go for it!
