Preface To 'How To Play Synthesizer' By Krishna Kumar Aggarwal

Casio, organ and electric piano are the nick names of this wonderful musical instrument, its actual name is synthesizer which is also called synth in short. Playing on any synthesizer is quite different that the other musical instruments. It is the musical instrument which produce sound form electric chips and release the sound from its hidden mikes. It is the reason that some technical tasks are performed before playing on it each time. These technical tasks are not done when you play on any other musical instrument. Although these activities are not much difficult, but step by step proper finishing of thesetasks is a must for playing on any synthesizer from the very first day.

Playing on a synthesiizer is much easier than playing on any other musical instrument. Upto few decade ago harmonium was the superhit musical instrument, because it is easy to play and a player also can sing while playing on a harmonium. But today, entire position has changed. Synthesizer is not only superhit,  but now is the king of the whole music empire. Reasons are very clear. It produces the sound by electric-chips, so it does not have any bellows. Your both hands remain free for pressing various keys and you do minimum physical work when you play on a synthesizer.

A synthesizer can produce the sounds of five to a hundred musical instruments according to its size and model. It also can play selected rhythms and tunes of songs itself and the pitch of the sound can be set on any volume. Due to these reasons, it is a true friend of common music lovers and a good guide and teacher for the students of music. Not only this, for the persons those prefer pomp and show and want to justify themselves as most modern and highly educated and civilized person, it is the best way to play on a synthesizer.

Invention of synthesizer was a great revolution in the field of music. Now nearly fifty models of synthesizers are available, from two and half octave casio to five octave medium size and upto eight octave bigger size organs and synthesizers. But it is the bad-luck of our music and the lovers of music, that there is no good book available on this wonderful musical instrument, either in Hindi or in English. Although some books are available, but none of them has any information about this instrument.

Playing on a synthesizer is not only an art, but it is craft also. Selection of the instrument to play, selection of the rhythm and tempo and setting of the pitch of the sound are some tasks, those are the base of perfect playing on a synthesizer. These works are not done when you play on any other musical instrument, except synthesizer. This is the reason that the players of other musical instruments and common musicians do not know anything about these tasks. On the other hand, the professional players of the synthesizers do not like to share their technical experience with new comers.

I have tried my level best to solve this problem of the new-comers and  commmon players of the synthesizers. Co-author of this book Mr. Tony Sharma is himself a perfect player of the synthesizer and also the music director of a famous orchestra group of Delhi. We have also discussed with several music teachers and master players of the synthesizers of different models while preparing this book. These are the reasons that you may get all technical informations with relative photographs in this book. Common knowledge of English notes, octaves, rhythms,  tempoes and taals and ragas are also given in this book with their proper uses and how to use while playing on your synthesizer. I can say with confidence that if you will play on your synthesizer one hour per day and follow the ways given in this book, you will become a perfect player in a few weeks.
