PIANO METHOD BOOK 1

WHAT MAKES THE HAL LEONARD STUDENT


PIANO LIBRARY AN OUTSTANDING METHOD?
The Hal Leonard Student Piano Library has great music and solid pedagogy delivered in a truly
creative and comprehensive method. Its that simple.
A creative approach to learning using solid pedagogy and the best music produces skilled musicians!
Great music means motivated students, inspired teachers and delighted parents. Its a method that
encourages practice, progress, confidence, and best of all success.
Students respond with enthusiasm to the:







Time-tested creative approach with proven results


Clear and concise presentation of concepts
Uncluttered page layout that keeps the focus on the music.
Exceptional orchestrated accompaniments
Improvisations threaded throughout the series
MIDI enhanced book/CD packs available for all Lessons, Solos, and Technique books
Variety of musical styles and moods
Supplementary materials graded specifically to coordinate with the HLSPL, including: popular,
Christmas, hymns, classical, duets and ensembles, sheet music, flash cards and more!
Realistic pacing that challenges without overwhelming

Heres what teachers are saying about the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library:
The Hal Leonard Student Piano Library is an excellent series, carefully designed and tested to produce musically
literate pianists who are comfortable playing the piano, reading music, and creating music of their own.

Meg Gray (from the review in Clavier Companion July/August 2010 issue)
How do these methods rate in their implementation of [MENC] National Standards 2, 3, 4 and, 5 for variety of music,
creating music, and reading music?...Excellent [highest] ratings were given to Hal Leonard: Piano Lessons.

Julie Ann Ballard (from DMA Dissertation: USC Thornton School of Music 2007)

I came on your website specifically to write you and let you know that I have been using your piano method books
from the time that you introduced them. I love them so much. I wish you could hear some of my students some time.
They play so beautifully and learn so much faster and more thoroughly since I started using your method. Finally,
I just want to say thank you for combining your lesson books and CDs at such an affordable price. It has to be the
absolute best value in the market today.

Kristi McIntyre, Franklin, TN

What I like most about the HLSPL is the variety of


music. All of the pieces are beautiful, with or without the
CD. I teach a lot of young beginners, and most method
books start out on the black notes, as yours does. The
big difference is that the pieces in your method are
artistic right from the beginning. The children love the
illustrations. And I love seeing results.

From the very first lessons in Book 1, students are


making music as they explore the piano keyboard
through fun improvisation pieces called My Own Song.
The beginning of the book introduces finger numbers,
the black-key and white-key groups, and basic rhythm
patterns.

INTERVALLIC READING

Step, Skip, and Repeat

IMPROVISATIONS AND KEYBOARD EXPLORATION


Directional reading is taught first by finger number,


then by note name, and then by interval (step, skip,
and repeat). Once the students are introduced to the
staff, they learn reading guides Bass F and Treble G
and read by interval in several different hand positions.

ADULT PIANO METHOD

ADULT PIANO METHOD BOOK 1


Lessons, Solos, Technique, & Theory

ADULT PIANO METHOD BOOK 2


Lessons, Solos, Technique, & Theory

Fred Kern, Phillip Keveren, Barbara Kreader, Mona Rejino


The Hal Leonard Student Piano Librarys Adult Piano Method
takes an all-in-one approach by combining lessons, solos,
technique, and theory into a single volume. This innovative series
is authored by the skilled writers of the HLSPL childrens method
accomplished composers, teachers, and performers with a
broad background in piano pedagogy. The authors have taken a
logical step-by-step approach, always keeping the adult learning
process in mind. The book is well-paced, moving quickly but
comfortably through new concepts and material. Beginning adult
students will find this book challenging enough to be interesting,
yet easy enough to experience a sense of accomplishment and
satisfaction. Richly orchestrated accompaniments available on CD
or GM disk will provide students with a sense of rhythmic security
and musical accomplishment as well as encouraging them to
practice on their own.

Fred Kern, Phillip Keveren, Barbara Kreader, Mona Rejino


The Adult Piano Method Book 2 begins with a brief review
of concepts covered in Book 1, then proceeds step-by-step
through 5-finger patterns in C, G, and F all the way through
to major scales in the keys of C, G, and F and their related
scales A, E and D minor. Just as in Book 1, the imaginative and
entertaining music found throughout Book 2 makes learning
a pleasure and a key factor for student success. Great solos
emphasize and support the introduction of new concepts in
logical, steady sequence. These enticing solos encourage
students to move ahead, and they are rewarded with two
great arrangements from every adults Top Ten list: The
Entertainer, and Fr Elise. Improvs, Quick Licks, Ad Libs,
Sight Reading, and Technique Tips sprinkled throughout focus
on using new skills and add musical fun along the way. CD and
General MIDI disk accompaniments are by Phillip Keveren.
