Grade 1, Piano
Funky pieces, great titles and excellent value for money Review by Fiona Lau
Star Rating
The Cool Piano Sport books are full of pieces written in contemporary styles (everything from swing and salsa to rock and ragtime) with appealing sporting titles. There are 12 or 13 pieces in each book, presented in order of difficulty. It’s great to see pieces that use British sports as their subject. As much as I love American books, I do get a little fed up of explaining what a baseball game is, or that references to football aren’t talking about the Premier League! Bowler’s Swing, Own Goal Blues and Red Card Rag are just some of the titles. Several pieces from these books will no doubt go on my ‘pieces for boys’ list, but they will also suit many girls. They can be played on either piano or keyboard as there are style and voice registrations for each piece – a bonus for peripatetic teachers who give lessons on both. Hammond is a piano teacher who knows what her pupils want, and has bridged the
gap between sport and music. These pieces will be great fun for between the grades, as supplements for tutor books and as own choice pieces in exams or competitions. I think that the books get better as they progress through the grades and it’s especially good to have something like this at Grade 3-4 level to keep young pupils’ interest. Funky pieces, great titles and excellent value for money. (Posted on 10/09/2012)
