This first book in a series of five piano technique books presents short, 4-measure exercises with helpful text imagery (Warm-Ups), and brief etudes. The skills emphasized in the Warm-Ups are given a musical context in the Etudes that follow them. Each Warm-Up and Etude in the book has its own original accompaniment. This package includes a Piano Technique Book and an enhanced CD with practice and performance tempo tracks. The CD works in any CD player but it also contains MIDI files for Windows and Mac computer users. Piano Technique Book 1 focuses on basic skills at the piano: good posture & hand position; creating a beautiful tone; attention to silence; playing forte and piano; playing detached tones; and playing connected notes. 32 pages.
