Alfred's Basic Piano Library: Lesson Book 4
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 4 concepts include: tarantellas; eighth note triplets; arpeggiated chords; first and second inversion triads in C; triads in all positions; major scales in parallel motion; two-part writing; seventh chords and inversions of seventh chords; E harmonic minor scale in contrary motion; primary chords in E minor; sixteenth notes; dotted eighth notes; primary chords in B-flat Major and G Minor; repeated-note warm-ups; and harmonic minor scales in parallel motion.
For reinforcement of each principle as it is introduced, supplementary material is carefully coordinated, page for page, at each level of instruction.
