(Grade 1)Helen Marlais - FJH Music Company Inc
Grade 1 thoroughly reinforces all of the concepts and the six basic techniques from the Preparatory level. New concepts include: melodic and harmonic intervals; tempo markings; quarter, half and whole rests; legato and staccato articulations; Treble C Position, G Position, D Position, and Bass G Position (starting a 4th below Bass C); musical form; half and whole steps; tonic and dominant; the natural sign; upbeats and accents; mp and mf dynamics. The terrific motivational music by multiple composers along with the pedagogically sound approach will provide students with continued success! All concepts introduced in the Lesson and Technique books are reinforced in all books in this level.
