Piano recitals can be intimidating. As students get older and become more self-aware, convincing them to participate in recitals can be challenging.
With a little coaxing, young children can be convinced to participate in recitals. With a little more coaxing, pre-teens can be convinced to participate in recitals. And with a lot of coaxing, teens can be convinced to participate in recitals.
But, there is one group of piano students that can be extremely resistant to performing in public… older beginners!
And who can blame those older beginners? Piano repertoire in early elementary piano books is not written for older beginners. The already-intimidating piano recital environment becomes absolutely terrifying when an older beginner must perform “The Pretty Palomino” or “The Angry Aardvark”.
But we’re about to take the fear out of piano recitals for older beginners and help them to become the highlight of your spring recital with March’s piano book of the month from PianoBookClub.com. Read on to discover the performance-based repertoire your older beginners have been waiting for. You can also listen to five full audio samples AND see a flip-through preview of the book!
The Ultimate “First Recital” Duet Book For Older Beginners
With the 7 pop-rock, teacher-student duets in this book, your Early Elementary pre-teens and teens, adult beginners (and even your young ones who love to jam!) will be begging you to let them rock your recital. Say goodbye to reluctant performers, and say hello to excited piano students who will “wow” your audience with the awesome pop sounds this book provides.
Your older beginners will be thrilled to participate in your recital if they have a performance piece they can be proud of. The big sounds in this book provide the dose of “cool” your tweens and teens crave without pushing them outside of their current skill level. Set in C and G position, each piece is carefully-crafted to sound impressive while remaining accessible to piano students who have only been in lessons for a short time.
The 7 teacher-student duets in this book offer a wide variety of pop/rock sounds from mellow to “blow the roof off”, enabling you to find the perfect match for your older beginner. Plus, each piece is paired with a beautiful poster featuring original artwork that you can use as “first piano recital” inspiration. Post them in your studio for some visual encouragement in the weeks leading up to your recital!
