“Everyone can read and write literature, but not everyone can read and write music. We make writing a song as easy as writing a paragraph.”

Now releasing our first edition of Musicianship, Book 1A! This book continues teaching basic note reading after students have completed The Musical Neighborhood, Preliminary book. Students read music in the keys of C, G, D, A, E, and F major. They learn the purpose of scales as they immediately see them in music. They no longer see written music as abstract or miss the sharps/flats, because they think in the key – just as the composer did! Stutters and frustration diminish as students gain confidence in reading music in our Musicianship series.

Music Unveiled is passionate about giving students a deep understanding of music. Our Keyboard Foundations books teach scales and chords as the building blocks to create music as a composer, improviser and arranger. Our Musicianship books make the connection to the staff!

  • Learn scale structure with solfege.
  • Practice steps to get familiar with the key and rhythm before even playing the first note!
  • Recognize theory as notated music on the staff.

This book also includes finger exercises to help the new beginner build muscles to easily flow from one note to the next. It includes daily rhythms drills and flash cards to give a complete understanding of the basics of piano notes and location. This is the perfect book to introduce a brand new beginner to the piano.

Meet Shane

I grew up hearing my mother play famous piano classics by the greats such as Chopin, Liszt, Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. Her influence instilled a strong love of great music within me. She also taught me basic reading skills as a child. And this began my lifelong journey into the world of music.

Growing up I took traditional piano lessons. I practiced my assigned classical pieces for a couple hours every day. My course of study left me wanting more. I wanted to be one of those guys that could play anything! I wanted to be able to improvise and compose, not just play massive memorized pieces. After completing my college degree in piano performance, I felt no closer to my desired goals.

After graduation, I began teaching as a career. I saw things in the traditional approach that didn’t seem to yield good results. I prayed about this and asked God, “How should it be?”

 I began studying everything I could find on composing. As I experimented with it, I was amazed at the fun things I could play! I started showing my students and they absolutely loved it. Soon my studio had over 70 students and I didn’t have time to teach everyone that wanted what I had to give and I could see the need to develop a teaching method that would give students a step by step approach to learning composing  using their chords and scales. What thrilled me even more was when students could learn a difficult classical piece in half the amount of time because they were reading chords within the music instead of one note at a time. Students of music unveiled learn to think like the composer was thinking when they wrote the piece. I am so excited to share with you the amazing truths that God has shown me! 

Music made simple.
