The Complete Book of Modulations for the Pianist is a valuable aid for those wishing to create continuity between pieces in different keys. Its one-measure progressions lead smoothly from one key to another. A brief introductory section presents modulations to and from the key of C major. The four main sections that follow cover: Every Major Key to Each Major Key, Every Key to Each Minor Key, Every Minor Key to Each Minor Key, and Every Minor Key to Each Major Key. Each section is arranged in accordance with the circle of fifths. The modulations presented in this book vary in style and may be adapted for use in many situations. This is a unique book which is a must for any keyboard accompanist's library.
