(Level 1B)Dennis Alexander, Gayle Kowalchyk, E. L. Lancaster, Victoria McArthur & Martha Mier - Alfred Music Publishing
Lesson 1B picks up where 1A left off. It begins with an elementary level review of Level 1A by way of a two-page writing assignment and three new pieces. The new concepts presented in Level 1B include ties, legato, staccato, intervals up to fifths, half steps, incomplete measures, sharps and flats. As with Level 1A, new concepts are presented in a clear, well-paced fashion and all involved (student, teacher and parent) are given a lot of support and nurturing throughout. The Success Kit includes all the Level 1B components in a handy zipper portfolio: Lesson Book & CD, Performance Book & CD, Theory Book, At-Home Book and Flash Cards.
