Each method book establishes a deliberate, but steady pace for the developing student. Principles of reading music, theory, technique, interpretation, and musicianship are explored. Calling on the combined teaching experience of over 40 years the authors have fashioned new ways of teaching proven concepts. Great emphasis is placed on the beauty if the music, the lyrics, and the art, which accompanies individual songs. Each lesson also includes appropriate scripture references to help students discover the joy of worshipping and serving God through their own music. Level A begins with a pre-reading orientation to the black key groups followed by an introduction to the white key letter names. The staff is presented ever so slowly, first using a one line staff, then a two line staff, then the five line staff, much in the style of Francis Clark's method for children entitled The Music Tree. Pieces feature one hand or another, until the end of Level A when students are introduced to the grand staff and are playing melodies between two hands, one note at a time, in middle C position.
Through a stylistically diverse set of musical experiences, students will learn the foundations of good musicianship. Each lesson is carefully written to provide gradual progress. The graphic illustrations are designed to be fun and inspiring, as well as to reinforce the lesson. While learning the basic concepts of piano playing, the student is introduced to many styles of sacred music: the wealth of great hymnody, songs, and psalms of the church; as well as the great classics in piano literature that every student needs to excel in musical study. Also included in the series are Bible verses affirming spiritual values intended to motivate the student toward excellence at the keyboard.
This multi-key, stylistically diverse series of books introduces basic concepts of rhythm, intervals, scales, chords, music theory, artistry, and improvisation. Companion products include hymnbooks, contemporary Christian songbooks, theory/technique/improvisation books, performance books, seasonal books and duet books. These, along with planned future companion materials, will help support the student's learning quest.
Each method book establishes a deliberate, but steady pace for the developing student.
