A compilation of great hits and all-time favorites for the learning pianist.
This Greatest Hits volume in the Alfred Basic Adult Piano Course answers the often-expressed need for a variety of supplementary material in many different popular styles. What could be more fun than to play the music that everybody knows and loves?
When the books in the Greatest Hits series are assigned in conjunction with the Lesson Books, these appealing pieces reinforce new concepts as they are introduced. In addition, the motivation the music provides could not be better. The emotional satisfaction students receive from mastering each popular song increases their enthusiasm to begin the next one.
With the popular music available in the Greatest Hits series (Levels 1 and 2), the use of both books will significantly increase every adult's interest in piano study. Two selections from this book are featured on the Royal Conservatory of Music Popular Selection List (2007 edition): "The Rainbow Connection" and "Nadia's Theme."
