Level 1 begins with Firefly, a sweet and beautiful melody that is shared between the hands in C Major position. This level continues the interval orientation to reading across the full range of the grand staff. Quite a few new concepts are progressively introduced including legato and staccato, treble F - A - C - E, notes in treble C position, intervals (2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths), half and whole rests, sharps and flats, tonic and dominant, C Major chord, V7 chord, G positions and more.
The new Piano Adventures 2nd edition books maintain the essence and student-centered philosophy of the original 1st editions. With the 2nd editions, the authors added more pages, more color, and some great new features. 1st editions are still available for those who wish to continue using the original versions.
