Late Beginner to Early Intermediate piano students are sure to derive much pleasure from playing this delightful book of children's music- 22 Nursery Rhymes: Techni-Arrangements for Piano (48 pages). Each piece is beautifully illustrated in colour. Nursery rhymes have been musical favourites for generations and their rhythms and melodies are familiar to many. Why Nursery Rhymes? The developing pianist has many challenges. Rhythm is a challenge which can persist for years. However, with Nursery Rhymes the melodies, rhythmic patterns and words are so well known that concentration can then be placed on the development of other specific aspects of piano technique. It is particularly with this in mind that I have written these 22 Nursery Rhymes: Techni-Arrangements for Piano. Woven into the texture are scalic, arpeggio and chordal passages, patterns of parallel fourths, wide leaps, hand crossings, staccato passages and areas where both hands play in the same clef simultaneously. In addition, there are ornaments, Alberti bass, imitation, interesting rhythms and the use of a number of different key centres. A suggested use of the sustaining pedal in one piece adds more colour, while the employment of a wide range in some other pieces assists in mastering the geography of the keyboard. In a few pieces the mode, rhythm or traditional words have been altered to suit my purpose, from the point of view of accommodating a specific piano technique. Some of these technical concepts may not generally be introduced this early in piano tuition, but they are guaranteed to add spice, enthusiasm and enjoyment to the learning experience of any Late Beginner or Early Intermediate pianist. Beautiful colour illustrations throughout 22 Nursery Rhymes: Techni-Arrangements for Piano are crafted to hold the piano student enthralled. These, together with other clever teaching strategies, make the mastering of piano technique both very interesting and memorable.show more
