Music Pathways offers a highly intelligent, thorough, and well-coordinated approach to beginning keyboard study. While experiencing a wide range of keyboard sounds, students develop reading skills, rhythmic response, and keyboard technique, ensuring a smooth and easy progression to more difficult levels and laying the groundwork for practical musicianship. Much emphasis is placed on secure reading. Students apply their knowledge of intervals to reading based on landmark notes, and in a short time they establish a very wide reading range. The child-oriented tunes are predominantly originals by the late, great Lynn Freeman Olson. Level A starts the beginning piano student by playing clusters of five white keys, to gain an orientation to the keyboard and to start to develop a natural hand position and technique. By the end of the book, students have been exposed to playing over a wide range of the staff and keyboard with an intervallic approach and no fixed hand positions.

    I love to incorporate quizzes into my lessons, and the Piano Activities books are filled with great ideas. Tests for sight-reading and theory skills using a variety of techniques. The quizzes follow the lesson plans in Music Pathways.

    This book is essential for users of Music Pathways. Theory, technic, and sight reading activities are included in the book, both in written format and in keyboard work. The pages are uncluttered, and there are not too many exercises that overwhelm a student. The work develops reading skills over a...

    37-note range. More than a "speller," the work focuses on intervals through the fifth. Multikey work begins in the B level.
