Thank you for being the best online print music retailer ever! I have used Prima Music as my first stop online music store for years and not just for the discounts and free shipping option. But also because of the wonderful customer service, the inventory, and the willingness of the staff to accommodate and meet the needs of the customer. I love the little handwritten "thank you's" on the packing slips and the little extras I sometimes find in my boxes! Thanks so much Prima Music folks for being the best in the business without it feeling like you're just in it for the business! -Gretchen B. Taylor

Each Repertoire book contains four Lessons; each piece in each Lesson corresponds to the pieces in the Musicianship book at the same level. This provides two equally effective assignment plans:

1.When students complete each short, preparation piece in the Musicianship book, they can then study its longer but related piece in the corresponding Repertoire book. This provides students with the most direct appreciation of how studies in musicianship prepare them to perform longer, more challenging pieces.

2.Students may complete the entire Lesson of short Musicianship preparation pieces, and then study the corresponding Lesson of Repertoire pieces. This gives students the chance to recognize the specific issues they learned in the Musicianship book as they begin learning the corresponding Repertoire piece. This process makes for keen observation and review.

The Glossary in the back of each Repertoire book serves as a convenient and important reference as students build their interpretations of each composition.

(Repertoire 4 CD is not yet released, but audio cassettes are available.)

The Performance CDs and audio cassettes are especially important to students of today for they hear ever less classical music, including music for solo piano and piano four-hands. These recordings provide students with insight into the expressive capacity of the modern piano as well as a way to confirm the accuracy of their preparations of each piece. Listening to the CDs is thus an essential part of their practice plan and a basis for Positive Pedagogy?giving and preparing lessons that do not require any corrections.

Starting with the Repertoire 2 CD each piece is played first in a slower study tempo so that students may confirm the details of their learning, and then in a performance tempo to capture the full drama and expressive phrasing of each piece.

In the front matter to Repertoire 4, the Introduction for students, parents, and teachers and the following essays feature these important issues:
Harmonic Analysis
The nature of progress in music study
Principles of developing good style
Principles of Good Study

These essays serve to assist students by helping them adjust their study methods and outlook to the advances they are making at each level, and by making them ever more aware of the beauty and expressive possibilities of the musical language.

Taken together, these essays throughout the four levels of Artistry at the Piano Repertoire books provide a concise, informative pedagogy guide for teaching elementary through early advanced students of music. As such, it is our wish that they find their way into every pedagogy class and every music teacher?s association library.
