(Level 1)Carol Tornquist - Word Music
Music in Me is a gently-paced piano method for the young Christian student, age 7 to 12. It's a Christian method from start to finish with inspirational Bible verses, Christian songs, and the spirit of Christ in each lovely note and kind word. Level 1 starts with pre-reading songs on the black keys and then introduces finger numbers above notes. Treble staff is introduced half-way through Level 1 with the introduction of the C Major 5-finger pattern. Next comes bass staff. Jesus Loves Me is the first piece the student plays on the grand staff in middle C position. Harmonic 5ths and 6ths are also introduced in Level 1. A certificate for completing Level 1 is found on the final page. Theory & Technique and Creativity books offer important activities to reinforce and expand upon the basics covered in the Lesson Book. Praise & Worship and Hymns & Holidays collections offer lovely solos with optional teacher duet part that are appropriate for special occasions, personal enjoyment and praise.
