Customer Rating:   3 Reviews Write a Review


Piano - SMP Level 1 (Elementary)
By Perf. Seizo Azuma. This edition: New International. Method/Instruction; Piano - Suzuki Method; Suzuki. Suzuki Piano School. Book & CD. 36 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.30030).

Item Number: AP.30030
ISBN 0739051644.

The New International Edition of Suzuki Piano School, Volume 1 includes French, German and Spanish translations as well as a newly recorded CD performed by internationally renowned recording artist Seizo Azuma. Now the book and CD can be purchased together or separately. While the music selections in Volume 1 remain the same as the earlier edition, the spacious new engraving with minimal editing generally keeps only one piece per page. Instruction material in many pieces from Volume 1 has been removed in lieu of right-hand studies at the top of the page and left-hand studies at the bottom. Tempo markings are now included on many pieces.

  • February 02, 2014 SUZUKI PIANO METHOD

    Suzuki piano books are used by students under the guidance of a professionally trainer Suzuki teacher. It is obvious that the previous reviewer was venting a personal prejudice towards the method. Many professional pianists began study of piano using earlier editions of this book. I don't believe their career...

  • March 01, 2013 Violinplaying on the piano ?

    On page first we see already how bad this method is : repeating notes ( easy on a violin )should be done on the piano ! The first song (twinkle twinkle little star) is deformed by "composer" Suzuki . The poor children have to listen to this nonsense on a CD ( Mozart used this...

  • August 16, 2008 New editions with CDs

    Book 1 of these new editions has a slightly larger format both in size and print and the pages are white rather than yellowish. The Prep exercises are clearly placed to practice BEFORE being introduced into a new piece. There are some minor changes in the repertoire to include more...

    contemporary pieces - an important addition. The recordings are also new and are sold separately.
