Great for supplemental use in private lessons or piano class, Theory for Busy Teens, Books  A, B, and One include eight units on all the subjects for a  well-rounded understanding of theory and it’s relation to the piano. For  the busy student, graphics and examples within the lessons offer a  quick and efficient way of learning. Three sections are included in each  unit: The “5-Minute FYI,” an introduction to the subjects covered in  the unit; the “5-Minute Daily Workout,” 5 short daily exercises that  reinforce the subject matter learned; and “Extra Credit,” an additional  challenge to reinforce the subject. For the teacher, study guides, a  mid-term review, a final review, and extra credit are great tools to  monitor and assess student progress.  Tips to the teacher and student  are also included, giving advice on the best ways to utilize the method.

For the late elementary to early intermediate piano player, Theory for Busy Teens Book A includes units on rhythm, intervals, major scales, major key  signatures, musical terms and symbols, major triads, first inversion  triads, and primary triads in major keys.

For the early intermediate piano player, Theory for Busy Teens Book B includes units on rhythm, intervals, major scales, major key  signatures, musical terms and symbols, minor triads, second inversion  triads, and chord progressions in major keys.

For the early intermediate to intermediate piano player, Theory for Busy Teens Book 1 includes units on rhythm, intervals, natural minor scales, minor  key signatures, musical terms and symbols, augmented triads, naming  triads and inversions, and chord progressions in minor keys.

Series correlates to the Piano for Busy Teens series from same authors Melody Bober, Gayle Kowalchyk, and E. L. Lancaster.
