Take Five Play It Like a Pro Cover


These video lessons show you exactly what to do to play each piece in the series on a professional level. In addition to the videos shot close-up in high definition, one of the key elements of PLAY IT LIKE A PRO™ is an included annotated score with detailed performance instructions. Also included are scores in standard notation and tab.

Learning these pieces with a teacher would take many hours of lessons and cost you hundreds of dollars. Even then, you probably wouldn't receive the detailed, comprehensive instruction you will receive here.
