Schaum Making Music Piano LibraryAdult MethodBeginner LevelBy Wesley SchaumTeacher Consultants: Alfred Cahn, Joan Cupp, Sue PenningtonSchaum’s Pathway to MusicianshipThe Schaum Making Music Piano Library integrates method, theory, technic and note reading withappealing materials for recital and repertoire. Schaum’s well-proven motivational philosophy andsound pedagogy are widely recognized.FOREWORDThis method is tailored for the older beginner – adult or teenager. It may also be used for mature students of a younger age.The progress here is much more gradual than other adult methods. This allows the student to be entirely comfortable withthe learning steps. The rate of progress is flexible; work in this book can be leisurely or fast paced, depending upon theindividual pupil and preference of the teacher.No simplified piano music is used. The musical excerpts are themes from symphonies, operas, ballets, concertos, oratorios,chamber music, vocal and choral literature. Also included are folk songs from many ethnic groups. Emphasis is placed onmusic appreciation stories and pictures of the composers and musical instruments.A minimum of finger numbers are used. Various changed and extended hand positions are used to avoid becoming lockedinto a rigid five-finger position. Simple transposing is featured. Broken chords are used instead of blocked chords for ease ofperformance at this level.INDEXContents.3Index.48Music Dictionary.47Reference Page.2Schaum Publications, Inc. 10235 N. Port Washington Rd.
