NEW: Listen to audio of each selection on YouTube! www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAL1A1USmZgVENTURING BEYOND features twenty late beginner to early intermediate-level piano solos, representing all key signatures with three or more sharps/flats (including enharmonics)—keys rarely seen in today's pedagogical piano literature for the early grades. These pieces, written in Baroque, Classical and Romantic styles, not only help acquaint students with the idea of reading "within keys," but they also introduce common musical genres of the Western Classical canon (including the scherzo, sarabande, minuet, and fugue). These short, expressive compositions—each no more than two pages in a medium-sized font and requiring no more than a major sixth reach—are also ideal for adult students who desire to play musically satisfying repertoire that is within their technical grasp, but still suitable for public and private performance. This volume also refrains from invoking programmatic titles or content that might suggest that it is geared toward the school-age student; thus, it is ideal for student pianists of all ages, from 5 to 105!This volume is pre-formatted to print double-sided, so that each of the two-page pieces will lie on facing pages when bound and no page turns will be required.

  • 2015-04-03 10:06:51.0 Outstanding Collection!

    Twenty pieces of original music in all keys. Ranging from an early intermediate to a solid intermediate level of difficulty. Included in this book is a very handy "about this piece" section that gives sample objectives. (VERY USEFUL for instructors looking to supplement a specific concept.) It feels empty to...

    say "This collection is great!" but it really is a great collection. If you want your students playing HGH QUALITY MUSIC in all keys, buy this collection right now! The minor melodies have a particularly haunting quality to them that students of all ages will enjoy performing. Music has a good mix of challenging and accessible for all players. Gorgeous harmonies pepper the pieces throughout the book and the variety of musical styles and techniques are contained within. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    This is a wonderful, rich, complex collection! I've had it for a while but have been waiting to write a review, because although I loved playing through the pieces, I wanted to try them out with my students so I could write a more informed review. These pieces would...

    suit students from late beginner to intermediate level. Teens and adults, who long for difficult-sounding music that isn't really THAT difficult, will love these pieces! What I find lacking in a lot of pedagogical material that has been written recently is that much of it shies away from key signatures. Most pedagogical music written at the late beginner/intermediate level will go into a maximum of two flats or sharps, so students get extremely overwhelmed and flustered when asked to play pieces in key signatures with 4+ sharps/flats. This collection will excellently prepare them for that, going through each key signature methodically. The pieces are lovely enough to be used for recitals, as well. A stellar collection!
