Succeeding With The Masters: Romantic Era - Volume 2

Books and CDs | Piano

Publisher: FJH Music Company
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Within Succeeding with the Masters® Romantic Era, Volume Two, comes the intermediate through early-advanced pieces by Schubert, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and Chopin. As with all of the books in Succeeding with the Masters®, Dr. Marlais presents each work within the context of its social and historical time. Valuable practice strategies for each piece help teachers guide their students in developing the correct technique and musical style.

Just listen to your students take off when they realize that they can play pieces by the greatest composers who have ever lived. Students want to succeed, and when they succeed with the masters they know that they have done something special. There is no better motivator!

        Musicroom Reviews

        I found this an odd book. A mix of the potted life histories of Schubert, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Chopin with the selected pieces described as "intermediate to early advanced". There are brief notes on the technique of playing in the composers "style", a very basic glossary, and a CD of the works. Any intermediate plus student should already be aware of their life histories and the glossary terms. I am not convinced the book achieves it's stated aims of "succeeding with the masters"
