Piano Theory, Primer


Customer Rating:   3 Reviews Write a Review


Piano Theory, Primer (Primer). For piano. Method/Instruction; Piano - Glover Library; Theory. David Carr Glover Piano Library. Instructional. SMP Primer Level (Early Elementary). Collection. 32 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.FDL00314).

ISBN 0769236057. Instructional. 9x12 inches.

The Theory Books of the DAVID CARR GLOVER PIANO LIBRARY are written in "programed instruction" style, one of the most effective means of learning in modern education. Programed instruction is based on three generally accepted principles: 1. The material is presented in small steps called "frames." 2. The student makes an immediate written response to each frame so that his learning is constantly checked. 3. The student knows if his answer is correct. The Theory Books are written for the Preparatory Age piano student. However, the fundamentals of music are presented in a logical order making the books useful for any beginner. The Theory books are correlated to the DAVID CARR GLOVER PIANO LIBRARY, but can be used with any course on music of this level of advancement.

  • April 29, 2012 The Best Piano Theory Primer

    I've played piano for 38 years, and this is the piano theory book that my teacher had me start with. I'm now a piano teacher, and after considering several piano theory primers, I decided that this one is still the best. It's well organized, easy to understand...

    , and covers all the basics that a beginning piano student need to learn. I highly recommend this book.

  • June 13, 2007 Great theory book

    I have been playing piano for 25 years but am newer at teaching. I've tried a few theory books and have found this to be the best beginner theory book. It is very simple yet covers everything, in detail, that a beginning student needs to master before moving on...
