About Succeeding with the Masters

Succeeding with the Masters is a series dedicated to the authentic keyboard works of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Twentieth-Century masters.
This series provides a complete and easily accessible method for learning and performing the works of the masters. Each book presents the works in historical perspective for the student, and provides the means and the motivation to play these pieces in the correct stylistic, musical, and technical manner. The easily understandable format of practice strategies and musical concepts make this series enjoyable for both students and teachers.

  • August 23, 2008 A Book of Great One Page Pieces

    I have a student working in this book who has been playing about 2-1/2 years. The book is filled with very short compositions from the Baroque Period through the 20th century, but by lesser known composers. It is really categorized as Elementary/Mid-Elementary, and I expect my...

    student to learn them quickly. It also comes with a CD with all of the pieces on it. The pieces are written primarily in the keys of C, G and F, with one more chromatic piece, and a couple in minor keys. It is a nice collection.
