This guidebook is directed to students, amateurs, and professional pianists with little experience in duet playing, who are interested in specific guidelines for performing one-piano, four-hand music. It includes various chapters on playing four-hand music including the history, goals and challenges, choosing a partner, pedaling, suggestions of what to play depending on age and level, fingering, togetherness/synchronization, balance, and more. Musical examples from standard four-hand literature are provided to reinforce the commentary throughout. Four pieces to play are also included: Pedal Etude (Kohler); Hymn (Kohler); Fugue on a Russian Theme (Arensky) and Rondo from Sonata in C, K. 19 (Mozart). 9" x 12" and 46 pages.
