Lesson Books 2 and 3 of Alfred's Basic Piano Course are combined in this book, which moves at a faster pace than that of the regular lesson books. This is for the benefit of students who have successfully completed the Complete Level 1 book or have moved rapidly through Levels 1A and 1B. It is also useful for students who have shown unusual musical aptitude in Level 1B. This book fully presents all the principles introduced in regular Lesson Book 2 and Lesson Book 3. The student moves more quickly into the study of triads, and then on to the principle chords of several major and minor keys. When this book is completed, the student may proceed to regular Lesson Book 4.
