Arranger: Roxana Tang ► Book Three is designed with the purpose of developing musicianship in students, namely in the area of Keyboard Harmony and Improvisation. Keyboard Harmony is a great skill to have and the student is encouraged to listen to the chords they read and play, and subsequently recreating them when required by the blanks deliberately given in the score. Writing the chords after doing so will allow greater impression and therefore better recognition of the chords both visually and aurally. It is essential as a musician to be able to mentally hear what you read, and to write what you hear. Many of the songs in this book are story songs. The melodies and lyrics complement each other and there is something to learn from seeing how this is done in order to develop the skill of composition. Being able to play the piano and sing with the words is a lot of fun, and the student should be encouraged to put that into practice.
