About the Music for Piano Series

<<Back to Music for Piano Series

The materials of the Music for Piano Series are sequentially organized in both an upward and outward spiral—Students advance upward in difficulty of repertoire as they simultaneously broaden their musical understanding at each level. —Dr. Robert Pace—


 

THE MUSIC FOR PIANO SERIES

contains four interrelated instructional books per level. Through these, students:
Learn the essentials for playing and creating music,
 Gain tools for lifelong, independent learning.

All four books correlate page-by-page for ease of use.

• Music for Piano introduces basic concepts through short, varied pieces. 
• Creative Music, Theory Papers, and Finger Builders apply, expand upon, and reinforce these concepts.


The PACE RECITAL SERIES
encourages students to extend what they learn in their core instruction books.

The Recital Series' outstanding solo and ensemble selections: 
• Introduce students to many different compositional styles, 
• Provide valuable opportunities for students to develop their expressive capabilities while learning essential fundamentals,
• Help students expand their technical range,
• Appeal to a wide variety of interests and aptitudes,
• Work well with any teaching approach.
