A Perfect 10 - Book 1
10 Piano Solos in 10 Styles
By Melody Bober
Level: Elementary / Late Elementary
A Perfect 10, Book 1, is a collection of piano solos designed to promote musical excellence for the elementary-level pianist. Melody has chosen a favorite teaching piece from the four stylistic periods---Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary---and written six original pieces in Jazz, Blues, Ragtime, Latin, Ballad, and Showstopper styles. These 10 solos provide students with technical challenges as well as expressive opportunities for musical growth in mood, rhythm, melody, harmony, form, articulation, and dynamics. Students do not have to be an Olympic hopeful to achieve a perfect "10," but they might feel like one as they practice and perform these selections! Titles: Blue Shoes Blues * Dance * Got Those Monday Blues * March in C Major * March G Major * Ragtime Fun * Spanish Nights * Springtime * Study * Trampoline Tricks * Wishing Well Waltz. "Got Those Monday Blues" and "Trampoline Tricks" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
