Rayan's Duet Book

Rayan's Duet Book

June Armstrong

Categories: Piano Duets

Levels: Early Elementary/Beginner/Prep A/B, Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

Rayan's Duet book is a teacher and pupil book designed for sight reading practice, with easy primo parts in five finger position.  The inspiration for this book came from Kathenka’s Muziekboek by Jurriaan Andriessen, which is beautifully constructed so that each simple five finger primo part skilfully complements a much more rhythmically and harmonically sophisticated secondo part.  For that reason, the primo parts are also satisfying to sight read for more than just elementary players.  The duets can be easily read at one sitting.

Finally a rhythm book that provides ample practice for first year concepts. Large print, and a gradual, well-paced presentation of each rhythmic element finds this book easy to use for both teacher and student. This book offers a chance to work with the metronome. Students love the page where they draw in their own bar lines and then test their skill at different speeds. Progress is recorded with stickers on the Rhythm Rally Race Sheet.

Rock this Town is the Elementary book of the Rock Collection Series, a stepping stone between Rock the Boat (Early Elementary) and Rock that Train (Late Elementary to Early Intermediate).

 

In this volume, Preparatory and Level 1 piano students get to play current music that dances and sings! With piano solos, solos with optional duets, and a spattering of lyrics and illustrations, this book makes the transition to more mature-sounding music, while remaining simple in rhythm and key. The duet ‘Black Tie Showdown’ is a new key pattern showstopper.

 

REVIEWS

"[You] will find pieces that will encourage exploration of the entire keyboard, chromatic passages, different time signatures, key centres, varying rhythm combinations and time signatures. You will also find opportunities for rote learning....The pieces in Rock This Town will set up much conversation, imagery, creativity and fun!" ~ Jennifer Foxx, Music Educator Resources blog

Safari is a journey through a day in Africa.  The day begins at dawn and ends under a starlit sky.  Along the way we encounter the landscape of the savannah and many of the animals that live there.  Thinking about the picture of the scene, or the character of the animal, will help you create a mood and atmosphere for each piece.  Have a wonderful adventure!

Today’s children know the story of the Titanic, the world’s most luxurious ocean liner. For the first time piano students can take part in the story first-hand by playing music that was heard on Titanic’s only voyage. The pieces have been chosen from passenger accounts, from the White Star Line’s official songbook, several will be recognized from the Titanic movies you have seen, and two are originals written in 1912 styles. All have been arranged to offer pieces students will love to learn, and to support pedagogical goals for their levels of playing.

 

REVIEWS

“My 9 year-old son LOVES the Titanic, so this is a perfect combination (great shipping disasters and music).” ~ Marjorie, ON

 

“The pieces and arrangements which delightfully capture the mood of the day, combined with the historical anecdotes, provide a well-informed re-telling of the story of the Titanic through piano music.” ~ Barbara Long, The Quarter Note (NBRMTA quarterly), NB

 

“I just had an amazing piano lesson! ...I asked him if he knew anything about the Titanic. Yes! He immediately paged through the book and found “Nearer My God to Thee.” We spent the entire lesson learning that piece–chords, counting, fingering, the works! Thanks Rebekah, for that book! There are 34 more to go, but this first one was a miracle!” ~ Caroline, AB
