I’ve taken advantage of low student turn out today by getting cracking on aligning more repertoire with the curriculum. Today I worked on the new Piano Star – Five Finger Tunes book which has recently been published by ABRSM.
This volume fits roughly into Stages B & C of the piano TRACKS curriculum. The pieces, as you may guess, stay in a fixed five finger position (Stage B) and many of the pieces have at least some, if not all, hands together playing at around Stage B to C level. There are a couple of features from Stage D (1st and 2nd time bars), which could be presented as an extra to students.
You can pick this up from your local/favourite online retailer for around £6 and it is full of great little pieces that young students will enjoy.
