The following important fundamentals are covered in this book: Directional note reading, intervals, chords and triads, scales (major and minor), keys and key signatures, finger technique and more. Teaching points are presented through appropriately graded piano compositions by the author, as well as through suitable arrangements from the works of the great masters (Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky).
