The In Recital® Duets series contains first-rate duet repertoire carefully leveled into six categories: Early Elementary, Elementary, Late Elementary, Early Intermediate, Intermediate, and Late Intermediate. There are original duets, duet arrangements of popular pieces, and duet arrangements of classical themes written as equal-part as well as unequal-part duets. Recordings are included with every book to be used as teaching, practicing, and motivational tools. This series provides practice tips, rehearsal suggestions, and duet performance strategies.
Book 1 gives students a fun and manageable introduction to duet playing! Students will experience the new joy of playing with another pianist, while learning about the important aspects involved. This book uses quarter, half, dotted half, and whole notes, and most pieces call for a limited use of hands together playing. Features arrangements of Ode to Joy; Are You Sleeping?; Take Me Out to the Ball Game; and many more, plus originals.
