Coauthors Martha Hilley and Lynn Freeman Olson have created an intuitive, flexible text that synthesizes keyboard skills, music theory, and creativity in every chapter, all while coordinating with theory curriculum. Designed for the music major in a one-year or one-semester class piano course, CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: ESSENTIAL PIANO FOR THE DEVELOPING MUSICIAN, Sixth Edition, is a compact edition that provides students with a wealth of performance music for honing their piano skills. Music from the Baroque period through the 21st century gives students a variety of compositions for practicing different performance styles. Authors Martha Hilley and Lynn Freeman Olson also focus on improvisation, striving to encourage student creativity at the keyboard. CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: ESSENTIAL PIANO FOR THE DEVELOPING MUSICIAN, Sixth Edition, comes with hundreds of MP3 sound files to help students learn individual parts of duets, multi-keyboard scores, and ensemble pieces; do self-assessment of their functional skill preparation; and aid in development of a more efficient practice process. In addition, co-author Martha Hilley has created a dedicated website with numerous additional materials as well as tutorials for text content. Instructors will enjoy the structured approach of CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: ESSENTIAL PIANO FOR THE DEVELOPING MUSICIAN, Sixth Edition. This approach will help instructors build on the fundamental skills taught early in the book, helping their students become better-rounded musicians.
