From the Publisher

The three-volume collection Mini Maestro presents little piano pieces advancing progressively from very easy to intermediate level, presented in chronological order across five centuries from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern eras through to jazz, pop and minimal music. At the end of each volume – under the heading More fun to play together – there are three additional pieces for piano duet. All the pieces are easy to learn and offer varied repertoire as an ideal supplement to any piano tutorial method with music suitable for concert performance, tuition purposes, examinations and competitions.

Book 1 contains pieces in the five-finger range at various pitches, followed by pieces spanning an octave range with simple rhythms and easy chord sequences. Also featured are differing styles of articulation, melody in the left hand, octave or ottava signs, pieces in major and minor keys with key signatures of up to one sharp or flat.

Book 2 contains pieces with an extended range of two octaves and chord sequences with three or four parts, including inversions. Other features include using the pedal, simple ornaments, basic polyphony, differentiating melody and accompaniment, pieces in major and minor keys with key signatures of up to two sharps or flats.

Book 3 contains pieces with a range of up to four octaves with more demanding rhythms and speeds. Also included are subtle contrasts in tone, playing with expression, playing more than one part with one hand and advanced polyphony in major and minor keys with key signatures of up to three sharps or flats.
