Print copies of this extraordinary book have figuratively flown off bookshelves world-wide and publishers Gentle Threat / Editions Bourges are currently scrambling to meet demand.
“The response to this unique approach to music brought to us by self-styled “entertainer” Chilly Gonzales took us all by surprise – we never expected such overwhelming demand” says publisher.
The second edition is underway and finished copies will be in-stores by the end of the month.
An eBook version (for Kindle, Ipad, Androids tablets etc.) of Re-Introduction Etudes is NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD at The Showroom at a very special price of 15 euros.
Nothing beats the look and feel of the printed book, CD and poster, but if you just can’t wait for the second edition, this eBook should let you get started on unlocking the musical mysteries of the piano.

For all the lapsed and amateur pianists out there, Chilly Gonzales has prepared 6 video tutorials demonstrating topics from his Re-Introduction Etudes book.
The first 2 videos premiere this Monday 9 June & next Monday 16 June on The Guardian.
Don’t miss the Maestro’s personal instruction about “semitones” and “left hand accompaniment”. Gonzo shows you how to learn these concepts by playing his own études “Tarantula” and “Lefties” and augments the lesson with current pop music examples from Lana Del Rey, Lionel Richie and U2.
