Description:

The Complete Pianist Level Two is 53 pages long and builds on all concepts taught in level one. By the end of book two, students will have learned to sight read all the notes on the grand staff! Level two gradually teaches all the steps and skips from each anchor note on the staff and contains 25 songs with a polish piece at the end to bring it all together. Level two covers further concepts in ear training, theory, sight reading, note names on the keyboard, finger numbers, rhythm training, interval training, technique training, and composition. At the end, you will find a "Level Two Review" which tests and reinforces everything taught in this book. The review can also be used to test a transfer student's current piano knowledge and abilities to assess what level to place them in.
