Succeeding at the Piano, Recital Book - Preparatory (with CD)
The Recital Book is a terrific way for students to learn wonderful repertoire while reinforcing the valuable concepts presented in the Lesson and Technique Book. The pieces are engaging and exciting to play, and are presented with artistic illustrations and fanciful lyrics to stimulate students' imagination and creativity. Students will achieve the greatest success when the Lesson and Technique Book is used with the Recital Book and Theory and Activity Book for a fun, well-rounded approach to learning music! The CD for the Recital Book allows students to hear piano music played well with correct phrasing, dynamics, and inflection. When student's ears are engaged, they will make rapid progress technically as well as musically. Students also have the opportunity to play many of the pieces with a string quartet accompaniment (two violins, viola, and cello), recorded live!
