Keyquest is a unique series of four electronic keyboard tutor books which provide progressive material from beginner right through to advanced level. They have found particular popularity among all teachers committed to giving their students a thorough, musical introduction to playing an instrument, and student really enjoy learning the fun, varied and original music included throughout.
The series is ideal for group teaching, as the skills and understanding introduced in each unit are common to all, while the choice of pieces from the unit and rate of progress may vary between pupils, allowing for suitable differentiation.
Although the Keyquest series is suitable for any and all aspiring keyboard players - whenever and wherever they are taught - the material has been carefully tailored to be used in conjunction with A Common Approach and relate to the first four Programmes of Study. The books are also ideal for those wishing to take the ABRSM Music Medals for electronic keyboard, and contain selected solo pieces for every one of the five Medals available.
But of course, these books provide excellent musical material whatever you use them as
a complete structured method, or in conjunction with any other curriculum!
"Thorough and informative, in a bright readable style and easy to follow with a selection of new and familiar tunes to experiment with."

"Keyquest is an exciting introduction to the electronic keyboard. It provides a thorough course of tuition with an emphasis on creativity and exploration. Primarily designed to be used with a teacher it also provides a useful source of learning for the independant student. Andrew Eales, the author, has a passionate enthusiasm for the electronic keyboard as a fully-fledged musical instrument in its own right. He ensures that pupils using Keyquest are motivated to share in his belief by developing their skills in a coherent, systematic and enjoyable way."
