PlayTime Piano Music from China is a musical journey featuring energetic dances, quiet folk melodies, and original Chinese pieces. The book is arranged especially for the early elementary student and correlates with Level 1 in the Piano Adventures method. At this level, five-finger positions reinforce tonalities and intervals. Teacher duets provide a full, rich background. Along the way, students meet LeLe the musical panda, their whimsical guide to exploring the Chinese sound through discovery questions, improvisation, and composition activities. A picture tour of China, unique at each level of the series, introduces highlights of history and culture.
Songs include: Fengyang Flower-Drum • Frog Dance • Let’s Sing • Pouch Embroidering • Song of the Newsboy • Tune from Xinjiang • What Is the Most Beautiful.
