With fresh and appealing music written for today's students, Performance Book 4 of Alfred Premier Piano Course gradually incorporates triplets and sixteenth notes. Students will play a variety of styles ranging from lyrical ballads, pieces with rhythmic flair, jazz, boogie, and ragtime, to original classics. New concepts include natural and harmonic minor scales (A and E minor), one octave arpeggios and chord inversions. The music, complete with performance tips, carefully supports the new concepts contained in the corresponding Lesson Book 4. Each piece on the CD was recorded at a performance tempo and a slower practice tempo. 32 pages.

    Totally coordinated with the Premier Lesson and Theory books, Alfred's composers have written an appealing variety of Latin, Jazz and Ballad styles to illustrate their pedagogical concepts. As with the earlier books, the final quarter uses Classical repertoire. The pedal is used to enhance rather than to blur.
