Journeys Piano Album 1
Each album contains a wide variety of genres and moods; the series also features music from different cultures around the world. This diversity will encourage the learner to journey into unfamiliar territory, exploring new ideas and learning new musical techniques.
The 30 varied pieces in this volume include folk songs, sea shanties, pop songs, and concert pieces.
This book is ideal for players in their first and second years of learning piano. This book helps players gain confidence in playing with both hands together, legato and staccato touches, and playing chords.
The pieces are relatively undemanding to play technically, but they are not simple pieces—each piece contains unique challenges in interpretation and technique. As with all the albums, pieces are roughly arranged in order of technical difficulty.
