Book and Double CD. Book 2 in the popular Bastien series for the adult beginner. Covers aspects of theory, musical history, technique, sight reading and basic harmony exercises. Compiled by Jane Smisor Bastien, Lisa Bastien and Lori Bastien.
This is a brilliant follow-on from Book 1.
The book contains a wealth of information, clearly laid out, chapter by chapter. Scales and Primary Chords are printed at the back of the book in a logical order. Theory and technical exercises are included with a good range of pieces throughout.
My pupils love this book and feel a great sense of achievement as they progress through it. Some pupils like to have the accompanying CDs to help when playing the pieces at home.
I wish there was a Book 3! Anonymous
