In Recital – Throughout The Year is a series that focuses on fabulous repertoire, with musically engaging pieces by leading FJH composers and arrangers. This series of books is carefully levelled to ensure that goals are attainable, which is essential in motivating students. Providing excellent teaching material, these books address the strengths and weaknesses of students, with progressive discussions by Dr. Helen Marlais on the art of performance and an analysis of performance strategies.

The pieces presented in these books provide repertoire for the entire year, including pieces for Halloween and Christmas, as well as arrangements of famous classical themes, with original solos and duets.

The accompanying CD includes demonstrations of the pieces presented in this book, allowing the student to develop their interpretive skills.

Volume One – Book 1 is suitable for Early Elementary pianists and covers many basic principles, including:
  • Basic notes, such as quarter, half, dotted half, and whole notes
  • 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures
  • Use of 8va signs, and therefore practicing moving up and down the keyboard
  • Use of the pedal to create a larger sound
  • Playing with both a detached and a smooth touch
  • Understanding of basic musical terminology, such as forte, piano, and repeat signs
  • Pieces which use the middle C position as well as other basic hand positions
  • Use of basic keys – C, F, and A minor (written using accidentals instead of key signatures).
