Level 1B includes elementary level pieces that appeal to the young student. It begins with a review of C and G Major positions, introduces middle C position, and conveys new musical concepts such as accidentals, staccato and accents, tempo marks, eighth notes and rests, and the damper pedal. The book finishes up with a presentation of half and whole steps, followed by a progressive introduction to the C and G Major scales.
