450 Contemporary Piano Studies In 15 Keys Pdf (Vol. 1 of 3)
450 Contemporary Piano Studies in 15 Keys is today's answer to The Well-Tempered Clavier. Drawing on author and composer Charles Austin's extensive lifetime experience as an educator and working musician, this work of 30 pieces in each of 15 keys (five keys in each of three volumes) introduces and explores multiple styles—from Classical to Jazz, Blues, 'Country' and Latin, and is an invaluable resource for piano students and teachers at all levels. These pieces can be played as sight reading pieces, or as quick studies, where the wide range of difficulty and complexity will allow both beginner and advanced students to be served. There is a wide range of difficulty and style in these pieces and enough depth, value and detail for most to be studied and performed as pieces on their own. Through chord symbols and other notation, the player will become more familiar with harmony, voice-leading, counterpoint, and the relationship of melody and harmony thus paving the way for improvisation and composition.
