Each book in the series, A Perfect 10,
is a collection of piano solos designed to promote musical excellence. Melody Bober has chosen a favorite teaching piece from the four stylistic periods - baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary - and written six original pieces in jazz, blues, ragtime, Latin, ballad and showstopper styles. The 10 solos in each collection provide students with technical challenges and expressive opportunities for musical growth in mood, rhythm, melody, harmony, form, articulation and dynamics. Students do not have to be an Olympic hopeful to achieve a perfect 10. But they might fell like one as they practice and perform these selections!
