This first book in a series of five piano technique books presents short; 4-measure exercises with helpful text imagery (Warm-Ups); and brief etudes. The skills emphasized in the Warm-Ups are given a musical context in the Etudes that follow them. Each Warm-Up and Etude in the book has its own original accompaniment; available on a separate CD or GM disk. Piano Technique Book 1 focuses on basic skills at the piano: good posture & hand position; creating a beautiful tone; attention to silence; playing forte and piano; playing detached tones; and playing connected notes.
