The Lesson Books are at the core of the Basic Piano Course and should be used as the basic instructional tutor for all students. To ensure problem-free progress throughout the course, and to avoid gaps that might impede progress, the authors have used "overlapping concepts." This means that after a concept has been introduced, it continues to be reinforced simultaneously with the introduction of new concepts. Use the Lesson Books in conjunction with the other core subject books, Theory Books and Recital Books, plus any supplemental books you feel will enhance your students' experiences at the piano.
This easy step-by-step method emphasizes correct playing habits and note reading through interval recognition. Lesson Book 4 concepts include: tarantellas; eighth note triplets; arpeggiated chords; first and second inversion triads in C; triads in all positions; major scales in parallel motion; two-part writing; seventh chords and inversions of seventh chords; E harmonic minor scale in contrary motion; primary chords in E minor; sixteenth notes; dotted eighth notes; primary chords in B-flat Major and G Minor; repeated-note warm-ups; and harmonic minor scales in parallel motion.
For reinforcement of each principle as it is introduced, supplementary material is carefully coordinated, page for page, at each level of instruction. Coordinating supplemental books for Level 4 include: Classic Themes * Duet * Ear Training * Merry Christmas * Musical Concepts * Recital * Repertoire * Sight Reading * Technic * Theory and Top Hits! Solo, Christmas and Duet books. Songs include: America the Beautiful (Ward) * The Battle Hymn of the Republic (Steffe-Howe) * Black Forest Polka * Blow, Winds, Blow! * Calypso Holiday! * Comedians Dance (Kabelevsky) * Farewell to Thee (Aloha Oe) * Gypsy Dance * Haunted House * Hes Got the Whole World in His Hands * The Hokey-Pokey * The House of the Rising Sun * The Magic Piper * Musette (Bach) * Olympic Procession * Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 (Elgar)* Prelude in A Minor * Space Shuttle Blues * Spinning Wheel * Swingin Sevenths * Tarentella * Waltz in G Minor * Waves of the Danube (Ivanovici).
