We’ve already reviewed how Piano Star Five Finger Tunes fits into the piano TRACKS curriculum, in this post we will look at where Piano Star 1 sits.
Piano Star 1 is the first in the original trilogy of Piano Star books. It largely stays in the middle C position, but incorporates increasingly difficult rhythms and musical sounds.
Some of the required techniques move into Stage D territory, but in a way that would be accessible to students in lower Stages.
This book would be ideal for a student who would benefit from exploring more demanding concepts, whilst building up confidence to move away from a middle C position.
Click the link to show how each piece in this collection fits into the piano TRACKS curriculum. Next to each piece is a list of elements that the student will develop whilst learning it. We have given two stages for each piece, the first is the stage at which we believe this piece to be accessible, and the second is the highest stage to which any feature of the piece belongs.
