Alfred's Premier Piano Course Level 2A (4 set): Lesson, Performance, Technique, Theory

This set includes the following 4 books: Lesson, Performance, Technique, and Theory.

Lesson 2A: Beautifully presented and intelligently paced, the Lesson Book combines unusually attractive music and lyrics. The book features note reading, rhythm reading, sight-reading and technical workouts. While most teachers find CD recordings very useful at the lesson and for home practice, others prefer not to use the CDs. To accommodate all teachers, this version of Premier Piano Course Lesson Book 2A does not have a CD included..

Performance 2A: The appealing repertoire with charming lyrics further reinforces and enhances the learning of new musical concepts introduced in the Lesson Book. Includes attractive music created by internationally acclaimed composers in a variety of styles, plus tips on how to perform more musically. Each piece was recorded at a performance tempo and a slower practice tempo.

Technique 2A: Technique 2A continues and expands on the technical and artistic tools learned in Technique books 1A and 1B. The seven new Technique Tools introduced are: dynamic shaping, crossing over the thumb, solid-sounding chords, two-note slurs, seamless melodies, balance between melody and accompaniment, and damper pedal footwork. Artistic Etudes showcase a student’s technique in an expressive musical setting, and Hands-Together Workshops focus on developing the skills necessary for coordinating hands-together playing. Each page in the Technique Book correlates with a specific page in the Lesson Book.

Theory 2A: Correlated page-for-page with the Lesson Book, each new musical concept is reinforced through fun-filled writing, listening and playing exercises. With games and puzzles added to compositional and creative activities, students retain concepts more easily and learn more thoroughly.
