The Complete Pianist Level One teaches the foundation for all future skills that will be taught in this series. Level one gradually introduces the anchor notes on the grand staff (top, middle and bottom lines of each staff) and contains 23 songs along with a polish piece at the end to bring it all together. Level one covers beginning 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 One Review" which tests and reinforces everything taught in this level. The level one review can also be used to test a transfer student's current piano knowledge and abilities to assess what level to place them in. More specific information abou
