  • Premier Piano Course: Technique Book 4 Released by Alfred Music Publishing

    By Guest |

    The world leader in educational music publishing releases Premier Piano Course: Technique Book 4, its newest addition to the widely popular piano method, Premier Piano Course. Perfect as a supplement for advancing piano students, Technique Book 4 continues and expands on the technical tools and artistic skills learned in Technique books 1A - 3.
    Technique Book 4 introduces five new Technique Tools--- staccato against legato, playing  in and out of black keys, speed links, open the hand, and rock the Alberti bass. 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. The Masterwork Etudes provide training to play standard masterworks. Each page in the  Technique Book correlates with a specific page in the corresponding  Lesson Book.
    Alfred’s Premier Piano Course is a beginning piano method with three main components: Lesson, Theory, and Performance. The method includes original music by renowned authors, Dennis Alexander  and Martha Mier, as well as new arrangements of other favorites.  Musical structure and concepts are presented in a fun, interactive way  that keeps students interested and enthusiastic about learning. Pedagogues, Dr. Gayle Kowalchyk, Dr. E.L. Lancaster, and  Dr. Victoria McArthur created the theory books based on a comprehensive  musicianship approach that includes written theory, ear training,  sight-reading, and creative activities. Reading is introduced using a non-position approach based on patterns and  landmarks to produce strong sight-readers.
    Premier Piano Course: Technique Book 4 (00-34106) is now available for $6.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com/piano.
