Piano is the main lesson book in the Bastien Piano Basics course. The carefully graded, logical learning sequence assures steady, continual progress. Original music by the Bastiens includes a stimulating mixture of pop, folk, classical, and contemporary styles. Full-color illustrations throughout entertain and reinforce musical concepts along the way. The gradual multi-key approach takes students through all 12 keys -- 3 in each of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. All in all, a dynamic way to introduce students to the marvelous world of music! Piano Level 3 (W03) presents relative minor scales (a and d), octaves, minor key signatures, major-minor triads, primary chords in minor, various bass styles, triplets, the chromatic scale, and the keys of D-flat, A-flat, and E-flat. The Theory book contains written work and some short pieces to reinforce the concepts presented in Piano. Games, puzzles, and colorful illustrations make learning fun! Theory Level 3 (W08) further discusses these concepts.
