Each 1st Recital Series book includes 12 solo pieces in diverse styles, from arrangements of "classics" to original compositions . This excellent literature is perfect for concerts, contests, recitals, churches, private studios, talent shows, school portfolios, and for home enjoyment. A beautifully recorded Piano Accompaniment CD (included with the solo book) allows the soloist to practice and perform accompanied, even when a Piano player is not available. Of course, the Piano Accompaniment part can be purchased for live performance in concert or festival settings. Also, a demonstration version of each solo with accompaniment is included on the CD, allowing the performer to hear a good demonstration of proper tone, expression, and performance techniques – an invaluable tool for learning.
