Each volume in the Step by Step series contains 14 structured lessons, a DVD (Volume 1 only) and 2 CDs. The aim of this book is to provide all beginners with an opportunity to have fun whilst learning to play their instrument. The 2 CDs contain performances of each piece to demonstrate how it should be done, along with play along tracks. The separate piano accompaniment book that is available for live performances also helps to develop the listening and interactive skills required for playing as part of an ensemble. Throughout the clearly presented lessons the student will find entertaining pieces, games and other activities which reinforce the area of learning within the lesson. Step by Step, together with the DVD, demonstrates the more practical aspects of playing and is a comprehensive and innovative method designed to achieve the theoretical and technical knowledge required for playing. Due to the fact that Step by Step proceeds at a slow place it is an ideal method for younger learners or those who need to progress at a more gradual rate. Step by Step - A definitive method covering all aspects of learning to play.
