Piano Muscle Builders for Older Beginners, Level 1 - Technique Booklet
This Piano Muscle Builders book is made specifically for older beginners, such as teenagers and adults. It covers the same material as in the My Muscle Builders Book 1 and much of the material in the My Muscle Builders Book 2, including five-finger scales, simple arpeggios, and block chords in all of the white-key major and minor keys. It is less cutesy and more concise than the My Muscle Builder books for kids. It contains technical reminders, articulation suggestions and more theory explanations and terminology, so students can understand what they are playing, develop correct techniques and play with a musical purpose. The book concludes with a review of concepts learned, where students have a chance to spell all of the chords, play the scales and chords all in a row, and notate each major and minor chord on the staff.
