The 2nd Edition Level 4 Lesson Book follows Piano Adventures Level 3B. The book is arranged by related major and minor keys, grounding the repertoire. The emphasis on root position V7 chords, arpeggios, and “Power Scales” links applied theory to the pieces being studied. Expressive repertoire selections build a strong foundation in harmony and technique.
The new Level 4 Technique & Artistry Book combines two elements of pianism: technical skill and artistic performance. This smooth, integrated approach builds basic elements of piano technique, always directed toward an artistic goal. Four powerful exercises called “Technique Secrets” help intermediate students build a strong technical foundation. “Artistry Magic” pieces at the end of each unit explore expressive playing.
The 2nd Edition Level 4 Performance Book offers an inspiring collection of pieces that reinforce the concepts presented in the Lesson Book. Pieces are organized in groups of related major and minor keys, reflecting the orientation of the Lesson and Technique & Artistry Books.
