This book combines the best of American and European methods of piano instructions with music theory, music history, and piano ensemble. The simplicity and clarity of instructions make them easy to understand and follow, and make them feel like a dialog between the author and a student. Shushana’s friendly presence is felt through her explanations and the pieces composed by her with great love and devotion to her art.
The book also includes a collection of great music by celebrated composers for extra practice or performance upon the completion of all ten lessons. The student’s ability to play pieces from this collection will be an indication that all the lessons were completed correctly and given enough practice time.
In addition, the students will get familiar with the composers of provided pieces, learn some interesting facts about their lives, and the most well-known music they wrote.
