Written especially for the older beginner, Pianoworks 1 explains all you need to know to get you started on the piano. It focuses on the traditional concept of learning to play from music but also includes hints on improvisation and playing by ear. At every stage there is an appealing and accessible range of pieces to play, from classical to modern in style, including a number of new pieces by the authors. New ideas are introduced at a steady pace, and examples and exercises reinforce learning and build confidence. There are useful notes on how to approach each piece, and a CD contains performances of all the pieces, accompaniments to play along with, demonstrations, and additional exercises. Pianoworks 1 can be used with a teacher or as a stand-alone resource.show more

Review quote

Book 2 is in preparation and will certainly bring the student to an even higher level of performance if the present collection's interesting and challenging content is maintained. * Piano Professional, Summer 08 * I have been looking for a good tutor for some time. This fits the bill and is excellent. I have been using a variety of adult books and none have been satisfactory. * A piano teacher * Many, many thanks and congratulations on a superb publication - I`m thrilled to bits with it. * A piano teacher * . . . a fine package designed to stimulate and train beginners from the age of about 13 upwards. It incorporates all sorts of music and is presented in an attractive, unpatronising and adult manner. The Bullards have exemplary credentials and I admire the way they have gone about this difficult task. * John York, Piano Sept 2007 *show more
