Succeeding at the Piano Lesson Book – Grade 1B (2nd Edition)

Helen Marlais


This newest edition features fewer technical hints and reminders so teachers can use their unique, descriptive vocabulary for the physical gestures necessary to play beautifully. The terrific music in this book reinforces concepts from Grade 1A while introducing several more: G Position; sharps and flats; tonic and dominant; Bass G Position; upbeat; blocked and broken chords; five-finger patterns and I/V7 chords in C and G. Students play many genres of music–nine classical arrangements, folk songs, and original solos by FJH composers.
