PRIMER LEVEL

Dear teachers and parents:
BASTIENPIANO BASICSis an exciting and comprehensive series for piano study designed to get the young student off to the right start. The learning sequence is carefully graded to assure steady progress in all areas. Theory, Primer is coordinated page-by-page with Piano, Primer and Performance, Primer. The three books should be used simultaneously for thorough reinforcement of each concept. The suggested sequence among the books is listed in the Contents. Theory contains written work and some short pieces to reinforce each concept introduced. Students will have a better understanding of the music they are playing-and will learn it more easily-when theory is integrated as a regular part of the learning process. We offer you our best wishes for achievement and success. Neil A. Kjos Music Company James Bastien Jane Smisor Bastien
