Premier Piano Course Technique, Book 1A composed by Dennis Alexander, Gayle Kowalchyk, and E. L. Lancaster. For Piano. Method/Instruction; Piano - Alfred's Premier Piano Course; Technique Musicianship. Premier Piano Course. Children. Beginner. Book. 32 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.27627).

ISBN 0739045431. Children.

Now your students will have the technical tools needed to achieve artistic performances. They will encounter skills in four areas---playing naturally (physical aspects), moving freely (around the keyboard), playing beautifully (tone production) and playing artistically. The technical goals are accomplished through three types of activities---patterned exercises with necessary repetitions to make the technique feel natural, artistic etudes that showcase the student’s technique in an artistic musical setting and appealing and descriptive exercises called Technique Tools. The nine Technique Tools in Level 1A relate to relaxed shoulders, arm weight, moving freely, strong fingertips, finger weights, repeated notes, thumb position, finger independence and gentle hand rock. Each page in the Technique Book correlates with a specific page in the Lesson Book; when the Lesson, Theory, Performance and Technique books are used together, they offer a fully integrated and unparalleled comprehensive approach to piano instruction. 32 pages.

  • February 19, 2012 Excellent for Young Beginners

    I believe this is the best technique book available for the 5 or 6 year old beginner. It does move at a slower pace than other technique books, so I would not use it for a 3rd grader or older but it has been very useful for my youngest beginners...

  • February 16, 2012 great for young beginners

    I use this book as the first technique book for all my youngest beginners (K-2nd Grade). The boys especially can relate to the use of weights, which are pictured on the front and used to indicate forte, piano etc. Since the children are of a younger age, it does...

    not move too fast for them, and the concepts are easy to grasp. Great book if used for the correct ages.

  • February 08, 2008 Straight forward

    The ideas and suggestions in this book are straightforward and clear but it is written as if the child's teacher doesn't know how or what to teach. However, if the child can read it can function almost as a self help book since the detailed instructions teach and...

    reinforce.
