Tales of a Musical Journey: Book 1


Tales of a Musical Journey For Young Pianists, Their Teachers And Parents - Volume 1 by Irina Gorin.

Written in a form of a chapter book, “Tales of a Musical Journey” uses fairy tale setting and characters to introduce and expand musical concepts. Books 1 and 2 cover the span of the first year of study and will sufficiently prepare the students for the classical repertoire.

The primary focus of the first book is to learn the necessary technical skills through freedom and flexibility of all upper body parts; shoulders, arms, wrists, and fingers. Devoted exclusively to non-legato playing, the first book teaches the correct touch and tone production starting playing with finger #3. Once the basic skills are acquired, new aspects of piano playing are added. The rhythm is introduced and developed through clapping, marching, counting out loud and playing with accompaniment. Once an understanding of rhythmic pulse is grasped, the student will learn the time values of the notes.
