To help people do so, author Vanshika Verma Khare has come out with a book that can aid musicians to recreate the top Bollywood songs with ease.

    Vanshika Verma Khare, highlighted, “I had never thought of writing a book. During pregnancy, I was suggested bed rest. My mother Rajni Verma advised me to do something creative, and that is how I decided to write a music book, ‘Playing Keyboard Made Easy Volume1’.  I decided to write a book on music as I love playing Bollywood songs, and like me, there are many who too like to do so. But, they do not get proper training. Hence, I wrote the book and published my first book when my daughter Shambhavi was 6- months -old. then published volume 2 the next year. both the books follow same writing style, but have different song collections. all the songs are popular bollywood numbers. books are independent of each other. you do not need to buy volume 1 to buy volume 2.  Playing the keyboard is my dearest hobby. My father late Shri Krishna Kumar Verma used to play keyboard, and I learned notations from him. We would play together, and now, I dedicate all my books to him.”

    The author added, “The books are written using scientific pitch notation system, which uses C, D, E, F, G, A, B to name the keys, and consists of popular Bollywood songs. These books don’t use staff notations which are complicated to learn. Thus helps you in ear training. Through these books one can easily read the notations and play the songs on the keyboard or any piano app downloaded from the play store of the mobile as these piano apps also use the same naming style which is there in my books, there is no need to buy a keyboard.”
