This series is designed to help students achieve an impeccable sense of rhythm which is the first step in successful sight reading, as well as develop their skills with key recognition, time signature recognition, pattern identification, interval recognition, and immediate response to articulation and dynamics. In the Every Day plan for Book 2B, students learn triads and begin to play pieces with both hands together on two staffs. Attention is given to different articulations and dynamics, and students are asked to transpose short pieces to the nearest keys. In addition, students learn to "plan" for note and rhythmic accuracy, correct articulations, and a good sound. Helpful suggestions guide students to think before they play, and not to stop once they have started. Students are also asked to count rhythmic examples out loud and clap, tap, point, snaptheir fingers, and march. Developing these important skills lays the pr oper foundation for music making and fosters stellar piano playing.
