Solo Xtreme, Book 5
9 X-traordinary and Challenging Piano Pieces
By Melody Bober
Level: Intermediate / Late Intermediate
The term "xtreme" is often used in sports to indicate feats that go beyond the ordinary. The pieces in Solo Xtreme were written to encourage students to achieve similar feats. The intermediate to late intermediate pieces challenge students to change locations, cross hand-over-hand, play large chords, use the pedal to create color and moods, and vary articulations. At the same time, they expand technique and musicianship.
