Book 2 begins with a review of Book 1 and lots of songs at the early intermediate level. As the student progresses through all five units, they gradually advance to the intermediate level. Book 2 covers several new Major and minor keys and includes nice overviews of 12-bar blues, lead lines, and the Count Basie chord pattern. Richly orchestrated accompaniments are available on the enclosed CD or MIDI disk. The Popular Hits book is a supplement to the core method book and offers brand new arrangements of standard favorites that adults recognize and love to play. The eleven songs in the Popular Hits book include: I Will Remember You; In the Mood; I Write the Songs; Moon River; Oh, Pretty Woman; The Phantom of the Opera; Stand by Me and more.
