(All-In-One Book 1)Nancy & Randall Faber - Faber Piano Adventures
, Adult Piano Adventures enables the adult beginner to play music for pleasure while developing musical understanding. This book presents the fundamentals of music notation, chord playing, and musical form - all through engaging music chosen specifically for the adult. In fact, within these pages await musical gems such as Over the Rainbow; Fiddler on the Roof; Amazing Grace; Don't Cry for Me, Argentina and Lean On Me. Each unit includes a "3-Minute Technique" page to develop finger dexterity and a "Music Theory" page to develop understanding of rhythm and harmony. Book 1 begins with simple, pre-staff tunes on the black keys, then progresses to tunes on the white keys with letter names in noteheads. The grand staff is introduced in Unit 2 and the student begins playing with the right hand thumb on middle C and the left hand thumb on middle B. Hand positions vary as the student progresses through the book. The layout of these spiral-bound books is clear and attractive. Teacher duets are offered for most of the tunes in Book 1 and optional CDs and General MIDI Disks for both Books 1 and 2 offer fabulous and fun background accompaniments. Christmas for All Time, Book 1, tailored to the adult pianist, offers traditional, popular and seasonal favorites in accessible arrangements, with some teacher duets.
