Today we are pleased to announce that the Gold Star Performance audio files for all four levels in the Gold Star series are available as interactive audio in the Piano Adventures Player app.
As the “Gold Star” title suggests, pieces in this series are especially appropriate for recitals and other musical events. A broad range of styles are presented to enhance the young musician’s awareness of classical, jazz, folk, and impressionistic sounds.
Gold Star Performance Audio is a discovery in sound for both listening and play-along. Repeated listening, with and without the score, will familiarize students with diverse musical textures and sonorities—a lively marching band, the bass sounds of roaming pterodactyls, or ringing French cathedral bells.
The educational recordings provide more than student demonstration—they provide settings in harmony, style, and rhythm which explore the expressive and dramatic qualities of the piano. Solo piano performances are included with the recordings.
