Piano Town, Technic - Level 1
Composed by Diane Hidy & Keith Snell
Technic provides page by page support for the technical skills introduced in Lessons. Each new exercise isolates one element of piano technic, giving the student a chance to focus on each specific skill.
Level 1 begins with a nine-page review of the Primer level. Students progress from the late elementary to early intermediate levels in Level 1. New keys and hand positions include F and G Major. Accidentals are used in pieces to introduce new keys, and then key signatures are used. Other new concepts including tonic and dominant seventh chords, crescendo and diminuendo, eighth notes and rests, dotted quarter notes, accents and more. Transposition is introduced at this level and is emphasized throughout the following levels. Level 1 ends with an arrangement of Alouette in G Major, employing the G Major triad, D7 chord (two notes only), and hands in two positions.
Piano Town is the perfect place to learn to play the piano! A Multi-Key method with an intervallic concentration and a Middle C start, Piano Town combines the best of pedagogy to date with innovative new ideas. Students will love the contemporary feel as they discover the musical wonders of Piano Town. Teachers will love the success of its interactive discovery learning approach!
