Includes Fingering And Commentary
This book is more complex than any of our other books. Each song includes helpful commentary and suggestions for how to practice the piece. It’s like taking a lesson with an experienced teacher. First of all, you’ll note that there are indications (the tiny numbers on top of the bigger numbers in the sample page below) for “fingers.”
You’ll need to assign numbers to your fingers, as all pianists do, in order to navigate more complicated music. The finger indications are only a suggestion of what you should use. We suggest that you first try the piece many times using any fingers, until you get the idea.
The music of Bach’s Prelude #1 is presented exactly as it appears in sheet music versions, that is, nothing has been simplified or altered or arranged. You will play the exact notes of the entire piece that Bach wrote 250 years ago! Some of the more complex pieces have been simplified slightly to put them within your reach, but many appear in their original form.
It’s a great way to get started learning piano!
