Composition Four popular diversions

Main Technical Difficulty or Benefit Form & Rhythm Blues Scales Syncopation

Other Notes & Comments More difficult than the one above, they are also more modern in idiom. Each can be used both as repertory and as teaching material. Little prelude in Waltz time can be used to teach both about form and rhythm, Baroque bounce likewise can be used to discuss what is Baroque, Echoes of the blues introduces the blues scales, and Ragtime doll is excellent for syncopation. This is for the total beginner, and can be taught on the very first lesson. RH play a steady even ostinato using only the note E, while the left hand plays the melody which consists only of ABC in different orders and simple rhythms. Excellent for sight-reading, for hand independence, for expressive playing and for bringing up a melody on the left hand. It can also be used as a seed for free improvisation. These are ten easy pieces, each one covering a dance style on the 18th century. This is excellent for rhythm development and to introduce the student to old dance patterns (which keep recurring on the piano repertory). Excellent recital material for the beginners. 4th mvt from Suite Espaola no 1, Op 47 no 7 from Recuerdos de Viaje, Op 71 From Iberia

10 very easy, short pieces. The harmonies are traditional, the writing is highly pianistic and they make up excellent recital material. The whole collection consists of 8 sets of short pieces for complete beginners. If you are familiar with Kabalevskys pieces for children, this is similar.

Introduction to contemporary music

Similar in difficulty to the above, this set of pieces uses modern harmonies to tell stories, so it is a very good introduction to how and why chords and intervals can elicit different emotions (for instance, The spider uses tritons to build up suspense, and Bees and Flies uses chromatic intervals to emulate buzzing). A collection of 10 pieces for the complete beginner, most you can teach at the first lesson. The interesting thing here is that they use the whole keyboard and introduce patterns that frequently appear in the more advanced pieces, so they are excellent preparatory pieces. Again very good recital material for beginners. More difficult than the previous two, this is thoroughly contemporary music - and let us face it, contemporary music is not the most appealing to beginners but this is a good introduction since it is not too radically contemporary.

Scale fragments Alberti patterns Broken arpeggios Very good for finger articulation/ independence.

Andante 1st mvt 3rd mvt Andante 2nd mvt, Allegro Gavotte in B flat 1st mvt, Presto This has to be the first sonatina to be learned. Grown ups may not find it so useful, but for the below 10 is a great repertory. The second movement is the easiest, but also dull. The first and third movements are excellent.
