The Grade 1 Recital Book
provides a wide range of repertoire that correlates to the Grade 1 Lesson and Technique Book
(22232731 or 22232701). Students are taught a variety of styles from traditional folk songs, classical, and original music. The "Before playing" and "After playing" points develop musicianship, good practice habits, and excellent practice and listening skills.
The CD provides a way for students to engage their ears and hear the pieces played musically and technically correct. When students engage their ears, they will make rapid progress both musically and technically. Students have the opportunity to play many of the pieces with a string quartet accompaniment (two violins, viola, and cello), recorded live!
