(2nd Grade Book)
John Thompson - Willis Music Company

This level gives the student experience playing at the intermediate level. Technical challenges such as tucking the thumb under and crossing fingers over is dealt with directly. New concepts such as the chromatic scale, ledger lines, pedalling, major and minor scales, arpeggios, primary chords and dominant sevenths are presented.  Composer biographies and commentary on classical music and music history are provided for many pieces, as are preparatory exercises and etudes. Fingerings are provided liberally.  A glossary of musical terms is included at the end.
