Piano Adventures - Lesson Book - Level 2A

Books | Piano

Publisher: FJH Music Company
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Piano Adventures is a piano method based on discovery, creativity, and adventure. Lesson Book – Level 2A follows on from the Level 1 lesson book. Piano Adventures Level 2 is divided into Level 2A and Level 2B.

Level 2A continues the intervalic orientation to reading through a musically appealing multi-key approach. Major and minor transpositions are explored in the 5-finger positions of C, D, D, and A.

The following features contribute to the success of the Piano Adventures method:
  • A step-by-step approach with constant review – the materials are organised into units which represent the major concepts and skills. As new units are introduced, earlier concepts and skills continue to be reinforced.
  • A wide range of styles in the musical material - this helps develop musicianship and encourages personal expression. Fanciful lyrics add enjoyment, while teacher duets provide rhythmic vitality and sonority.
  • A strong foundation in reading that builds successful musical performance of pitches and rhythms. As 5-finger positions are learned, students are sometimes directed to start on different fingers than those normally used for the pattern. This unique feature avoids equating a particular note with a certain finger.
  • A sense of adventure, brought about through creativity and discovery activities. An optional composing project is offered for each unit as well as frequent discovery questions. The discovery questions provide review and increase the student’s awareness of musical concepts.

          This book is great. It has some very nice pieces and great duets.

          Still one of the very best Lesson books out there. Students can progress quickly due to 'scaffolding learning approach.
          But the songs are not as catchy as level 1.
          And the book seems a bit shorter. Less of an adventure than the first two books.

          Easy to read and prompted throughout
          The music itself - not the catchiest or most melodic - I think this makes tempo harder and can be disengaging

          I would recommend the Piano Adventure series and the reaction from my students has been positive. The books are nicely laid out with appealing tunes, some of which have an optional duet part. Encourages students not to associate a note with a particular finger. Overall, well worth a look.

          This is the third book in the series - one that I use after the Initial test. I think the whole series is wonderful.
