Piano Notebook is a project created to provide various materials, resources, ideas and activities for piano teachers with elementary and intermediate level students.
Each publication will address a topic related to piano pedagogy. Depending on the topic of each notebook, different materials will be included, such as compositions, improvisations, arrangements, technical exercises, audios, card sheets, theory and rhythm.
It will all be sold in PDF format with a studio license, which will allow teachers who purchase it free and unlimited use with their own students.
Piano Notebook 1
Practicing pentascales (the first five notes of a major or minor scale) creates the basis for solid technique and is an essential tool for developing musical comprehension.
This publication contains 24 eight measure pieces designed for practicing all major and minor pentascales. They are written in different meters and styles with the intention of covering as wide a variety of piano textures as possible. The simplicity of their compositional structure favors easily transposing each piece to any other key. It also allows students to change the mode, meter or rhythm.
Piano Notebook 1 contains:
- 24 pieces in all keys, each one eight measures long and in the five-finger position.
- 24 audio files.
- Printable card sheets of all keys, pentascales, key signatures and time signatures to use in different activities.
- A tracking chart for the 24 keys.
The studio license allows the buyer to print it an unlimited number of times for his or her own use and for the use of his/her students.
