Piano is the main lesson book in the Bastien Piano Basics course. The carefully graded, logical learning sequence assures steady, continual progress. Original music by the Bastiens includes a stimulating mixture of pop, folk, classical, and contemporary styles. Full-color illustrations throughout entertain and reinforce musical concepts along the way. The gradual multi-key approach takes students through all 12 keys -- 3 in each of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. Each page is carefully correlated page-by-page with Theory, Performance, and Technic. All in all, a dynamic way to introduce students to the marvelous world of music! Level 3 presents relative minor scales (a and d), octaves, minor key signatures, major-minor triads, primary chords in minor, various bass styles, triplets, the chromatic scale, and the keys of D-flat, A-flat, and E-flat.

    A 13 year old student, returning to music lessons after a 1 year "vacation" picked right up in this book. I strongly believe he will be in Book 4 very soon, as he is remembering quickly and is strongly motivated!
