This book was created to help piano students of all ages and skill levels learn how to improvise and arrange music of their own. The 100 left hand patterns introduced in this book can help piano students, piano teachers, and music professionals take their piano playing to the next level by learning how to play the same song 100 different ways. Use these 100 left hand patterns in this book to arrange the 100 songs from the FUN Fake Book or use the left hand patterns to arrange any music you'd like to play. You can even use the 100 left hand patterns introduced in this book to compose music of your own. It's all about creating, arranging, improvising, and composing music you want to play. The left hand patterns taught in this book have been divided up into four different groups: 1. Basic Left Hand Patterns, 2. Jazz, Blues, and Boogie-Woogie Left Hand Patterns, 3. Rock and Pop Left Hand Patterns, and 4. New Age and Contemporary Left Hand Patterns. I only included 100 left hand patterns, but there are so many more patterns you can create. See what you can come up with and take your piano playing to the next level This book is divided into two sections: 1. 100 Left Hand Patterns, and 2.
