Los Angeles, CA — July 1, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music since 1922, announces the release of Piece by Piece, Books 1 and 2, a new piano series of early intermediate to intermediate solos, by Tom Gerou.

The books are designed to give the student the opportunity to explore a  variety of styles, techniques, textures, and moods. The foreward in  both books explains each solo’s unique teaching technique.

Written for the early intermediate pianist, Book 1 contains eight  original color pieces that are intended to encourage the understanding  of music and piano playing though a variety of techniques. These include  solos with melodic material in different keys, A-B-A form, transitional  scale passages, melodic material in compact form, tri-tones, and  rhythmic anticipations.

Book 2 contains seven original color pieces for the intermediate  pianist. Elaborating on the techniques learned in Book 1, Book 2  includes solos in various styles such as tango, baroque, samba, and  jazz. Additional concepts taught include time signature changes, finger  patterns, finger crossings, hand-over-hand technique, contrast rhythms,  and playing in perfect 5ths.

Piece by Piece, Books 1 and 2
(00-37732, 00-37733) are both available for $6.99 each and can be found at music retail stores and at alfred.com/piano.
