The purpose of this book is to help develop strong hands and flexible fingers. The idea is to learn two or three exercises at a time, which should be played each day before practicing. Only when these are mastered should you add another. When all in the first group are mastered, the next group may be introduced. Many of these exercises may be transposed to different keys.
The accompanying CD is a wonderful tool for enhancing these exercises with highly acclaimed midi-orchestrated backing tracks - learning becomes so much fun!
Each track is split to enable the pupil to hear both Piano part and accompaniment is the balance is centred, the accompaniment without the Piano is the balance control is all the way to the left, and the Piano part alone if it is all the way to the right!
