Essential Elements Piano TheorySummer break is soon upon us and for many students that also means an extended break from piano lessons. It can be a challenge to retain
a year’s worth of theory without regularly scheduled lessons, especially when the answer to every exercise has already been scribbled in the book. A great tool for keeping this knowledge fresh is by supplementing summer homework with Hal Leonard’s new series Essential Elements Piano Theory. Whether using it alongside another method or as a standalone for teachers who customize their lesson plans, the series helps students learn and reinforce fundamental theoretical concepts—such as ear training, mastery eading, and analysis—through a clear and thorough presentation. Furthermore, the age-neutral layout and in rhythm, symbols, rcreative and fun approach makes this series the perfect fit for both child and adult students.











Complete Collection of Piano Solos for WeddingsPop Quiz: Besides the beginning of summer break, what else happens in June? Weddings! For pianists who have been asked to play at one of
the more than 230,000 June weddings that will take place in the United States this year, there is a great book by Jan Sanborn now available from Alfred Music Publishing. Wedding Performer: Complete Collection of Piano Solos for Weddings contains 44 arrangements of piano solos that are regularly requested for ceremonies and receptions. This comprehensive collection includes standard masterworks and Christian favorites ideal for preludes, processionals, interludes and recessionals, plus a number of popular and standard ballads. At 192 pages, this is a great go-to book for early advanced pianists as well as a resource for advanced pianists who find their set list inexplicably changing at the last minute.
