This publication is part of a progressive series of handbooks, primarily intended for candidates considering taking LCM's Grade examination in Electronic Keyboard. This edition is for Grade 1.
Given the handbook's wide content of musical repertoire and associated educational material, it provides a solid foundation of musical education for any Keyboard student, of any age, whether they are intending to take an exam or not.
I have purchased these books for my students who are starting Grade one next year.
The music book contents have changed from playing to other exercises.
I think more content on chord changes and rhythms should have been put into this book. Having said that some nice have been included.
If you want to do your Keyboard Grade 1 exam you have to have this book. Anonymous

I think the pieces in here are on the hard side for Grade 1. They're long, and full of dotted rhythms and chord changes, which will put some pupils off. However I'm glad LCM have changed the keyboard syllabus after 7 years (no more Ode to Joy) and You're the Hero looks like a fab piece, I shall enjoy teaching that one. Anonymous
