Dexter's Easy Piano Pieces - Margaret Brandman
The Repertoire Book for Level One of The Contemporary Piano Method'
Containing repertoire for Level One (A and B) of the Contemporary Piano Method, this book presents simple two part arrangements, or chordal accompaniments for many well known pieces, ranging from folk melodies to much loved classics through to the Twelve Bar blues tunes and Margaret's new original piece 'Arabian Rock'.
The arrangements and technical exercises (Dexter-Flexers) are specially designed to allow the fingers of both hands to remain on the keyboard so that the interval reading method can be fostered. (Too many rests disturb the reading process for beginners, so it is better for the reading process to use a legato touch which allows students to feel their position on the keys). The tunes also allow students to consolidate the direction concepts introduced in the Junior Primer and Level One A of the method, and are suitable for transposition.
