The Classical Piano Method is ideal for adults and young people looking to learn the piano from scratch, or for those returning to the piano after a substantial break from playing. You will learn traditional, classic technique, and will be introduced to interesting, varied and well-known classical pieces right from the outset. The method is friendly and is carefully designed to progress in small manageable steps, beginning with simple fingering patterns and exercises, moving onto some of the most beautiful melodies and pieces from the baroque, classical and romantic eras: such as Ode to Joy, Für Elise and the Blue Danube Waltz.

The Method Book leads you through a range of exercises, repertoire pieces to learn, theory checks, clear instruction & diagrams on playing and technique, tips on practicing, and composer biographies. It also includes a CD so you can listen to all the pieces performed on a grand piano by a concert pianist, as well as some additional accompanying parts which you can use as play-along tracks. Learning is made interesting, informed and fun.

Repertoire in Method Book 1 includes extracts and themes from: Peer Gynt Suite (Grieg) • Wedding March from Lohengrin (Wagner) • Eine kleine Nachtmusik (Mozart) • Symphony No. 6 (Beethoven) • Cancan from Orpheus in the Underworld (Offenbach) • Surprise Symphony (Haydn) • Barcarole from Tales of Hoffmann (Offenbach) • Spring from The Four Season (Vivaldi) • Ode to Joy (Beethoven) • Water Music (Handel) • The New World Symphony (Dvorák) • Symphony No. 1 (Mahler) • Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky) • Dream of Love (Liszt).

  • September 24, 2019 Good Selection but not completely for Beginner

    I have been learning since last 2 1/2 years and I was looking for more of playing classical, I did select this book based on title and it is 100% true to start with classical songs. The biggest advantage of this book is it is simple to start for...

    not to complex however, the audio for each song won't match exactly as in the book and it will be really hard for beginner and may cause confusion and frustration. So I am 100% sure this is not 100% for beginner. However I like many songs from the books which are really enjoyable however it can happen only when you have some background.
