I am excited to share my newest project for Piano Pronto--a collection that I hope will serve a practical purpose in your studio!
"Hit Singles" contains 12 pieces at the late elementary to early intermediate level that can be played with either left or right hand alone. This collection is perfect for students that can only use one hand due to an injury, or as technical exercises for students that need to develop more agility in one hand.
Some of the technical concepts contained in this collection:
- Quick jumps across the keyboard
- Playing right hand in bass clef (or left hand in treble clef)
- Pedaling by ear
- Stretching the hand (using sixths, sevenths, and easy arpeggio patterns)
- Playing melody and harmony in the same hand (simple voicing)
This collection contains a variety of styles. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the book (demonstrated first by the left hand, then by the right):
