Paul Harris/Richard Crozier: Improve Your Piano
This revolutionary new series presents Paul Harris’s Simultaneous Learning approach to teaching music. Co-written with Richard Crozier, this book gives guidance on how to tackle the nine pieces in the ABRSM publication Piano Exam Pieces Grade 1 2015 & 2016 with the most holistic approach.
Every piece is looked at in detail, the crucial ‘ingredients’ are listed and a series of activities and ideas outlined for different stages: Pre-notation work, Introducing the notation and Playing and refining the piece. There is also a photocopiable pupil’s worksheet for each piece.
Because all aspects of musical training are connected through the Simultaneous Learning approach, the activities also improve every aspect of exam preparation. Aural, sight-reading, theory and scale and arpeggio practice will be transformed and pupils’ overall understanding of music greatly enhanced.
