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 their core-book learning.
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 along with learning essential fundamentals,
 Help students extend their technical range,
 Appeal to a wide variety of interests and aptitudes,
 Work well with any teaching approach.

The Recital Series' diversity of material is also ideal for collaborative group-learning:

 
Each student practices one or more different selections.
 During weekly lessons, students help one another learn and polish their respective pieces by offering constructive feedback under the guidance of their teacher.

Benefits of Collaborative Study:
 Students become familiar with a greater range of piano music 
 They further their listening skills and practice teaching others, and, along with this, learn to teach themselves.
