PIANODAO REVIEWS POLICY
Paul Harris’s Piece a Week series has been among the triumphs of recent years. In my own teaching these books have become a staple with students of all ages, and the number one top sight reading resource that I recommend and use. I have reviewed the books for Grade 1-6 here and for Initial Grade here.
Now Faber Music bring us a combined book covering Grades 7 and 8, which completes the series. The book maintains the educational approach and musical engagement of its predecessors, so for more information please be sure to read those previous reviews.
The final book well and truly lives up to the sky-high standards of the rest in the series, and is in my view truly superb.
To give you a taste, Faber Music have generously provided this FREE piece from the book as an exclusive Pianodao download:
And now for Paul Harris in person…
Faber Music kindly organised a special webinar for Pianodao Tea Room members, celebrating the new release and giving him the opportunity to outline the series in person, introduce the final book, play some of the pieces, and answer questions.
