Everybody loves music, and playing or listening to music improves mood, create happiness and relaxation in life. Music is an expression; it becomes more exciting when one gets involved in the process and starts presenting it.
In India, Bollywood is much more than a mere film industry; it is considered no less than a religion. It has kept the audience enthralled for many decades with its stunning movies. A significant part of Bollywood movies is songs. Since its inception, Bollywood has produced many evergreen songs which have not lost their charm despite repeated encores. Many performers wish to play these songs, but they find it hard because of the unavailability of easy notations. Vanshika Verma Khare has written this book to assist such musicians in performing their favourite songs with ease.
The book consists of 40 chords and notations of famous Bollywood songs such as Ajeeb Dastaan, Gulabi Ankhein, Tum Hi Ho, Mein Tenu Samjhawan Ki, Zehnaseeb, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Jag Ghumeya, Sun Mere Humsafar and many more. Keyboard lovers, students, professionals as well as novices will surely find this book very useful. Speaking about the same, Vanshika Verma Khare said, ‘’I love playing Bollywood songs and like me, there are so many people who also love playing them. While interacting with them, I realized that they find it difficult to play the songs because they do not find any proper notations. And because of that, they have to join music classes and learn complicated sheet music taught in the class. Hence, I decided to create a book using scientific pitch notation system which lets you play songs directly looking into the book. You don’t need to buy a keyboard or a piano to play songs. You can install piano app from your mobile play store and play these songs using the app.’’
‘Playing Keyboard Made Easy’ Volume 1 & 2 are currently out now and available on Notion Press bookstore, Amazon, Flipkart and other e-commerce stores. The book quickly rose to number 1 status in music book section on Amazon kindle.
