Book information: Spiral bound; 76 pages



The Supersonics Piano Method Quick Start series is designed to give older beginners a "quick start" to the piano. There is no padding in this book, just a streamlined contemporary progression. This book is suitable for all ages (younger beginners may be more suited to Supersonics Piano Method Level One though). There are three ways to effectively use this method:

  1. Use this book in conjunction with the free version of Supersonics Plus. You can also use the material in the Teacher Resource book.
  2. Subscribe to Supersonics Plus to experience the full comprehensive program (if you are a Plus subscriber you can print all the pieces in this book as part of your membership).
  3. Use this book as the repertoire, technical and creative base for your teaching/learning. You can then add your own aural and theory programs.

Description

The book is divided into three sections:

  1. Reading and Technique: These pieces will give you a strong technical base and teach you basic reading skills.
  2. Explorations: We explore a wider range on the piano and add in arrangements of some popular classical pieces in order to expand your musical horizons.
  3. Chords: These pieces teach you how to work with popular chords.

It is recommended that you complete the Reading and Technique section first. After this you can either continue working through the book sequentially or you can “mix and match” from the Explorations and Chords sections. When you have completed this book you can simply progress straight on to Quick Start Level B or you can switch across to Supersonics Piano Method Level Three.

Supersonics Plus 

Supersonics Plus is the online system that works in conjunction with this book in order to give you the "complete" method experience. Supersonics Plus features:

Backing tracks: Every original piece has a backing track. Practicing with backing tracks is a great way to develop a strong sense of beat. 

Teacher duets: Every piece in the Reading and Technique section has a teacher duet. These develop a student's ensemble skills. 

Supplementary repertoire: Supersonics Plus features a huge library of supplementary pieces.

Rhythm Builders: Every piece has a Rhythm Builder worksheet associated with it.
