Piano Adventures is a piano method based on discovery, creativity, and adventure.
Level 3A introduces the interval of a 7th, the octave, 3/8 and 6/8 time, the triplet, ledger lines, the chromatic scale, the D major scale, one-octave arpeggios. The pieces explore the full range of the keyboard with a dynamic range of pianissimo to fortissimo.
The following features contribute to the success of the Piano Adventures method:
A step-by-step approach with constant review – the materials are organised into units which represent the major concepts and skills. As new units are introduced, earlier concepts and skills continue to be reinforced.
A wide range of styles in the musical material – this helps develop musicianship and encourages personal expression.
A strong foundation in reading that builds successful musical performance.
A sense of adventure, brought about through creativity and discovery activities. An optional composing project is offered for each unit as well as frequent discovery questions. The discovery questions provide review and increase the student’s awareness of musical concepts.
