Alfred's Basic Piano Library: Lesson Book 5
By Willard A. Palmer, Morton Manus, and Amanda Vick Lethco
This easy step-by-step method emphasizes correct playing habits and note reading through interval recognition. Lesson Book 5 concepts include the ornaments: long appoggiatura, short appoggiatura, trill and mordent; plus arpeggios; the A Major scale; and the keys of B minor and C minor. Also introduces the playing of minuets, sonatinas, preludes and arias.
For reinforcement of each principle as it is introduced, supplementary material is carefully coordinated, page for page, at each level of instruction.
