Introduction to Celebration Series Perspectives ®

Piano Etudes

The ten Piano Etudes books contain numerous etude-like selections and some character pieces that address specific technical challenges.

Each piece has a technical focus that is described in the table of contents, and can be used as preparation for similar compositions in the Repertoire books. Each level includes works that can be used effectively as technique builders, recital or competition pieces, and for enjoyment.

Student Workbooks

The nine Student Workbooks in Celebration Series Perspectives ® are companion volumes to the Piano Repertoire books for the Preparatory Level through Level 8. They are written for the student, using language and music terminology appropriate for students at each level.

For each piece, the student’s interest and intellect are engaged through an approach of discovery learning: relevant historical and theoretical discussion and hands-on writing and creative activities lead the student to an understanding of the essence of the music.

The discussions cover a wide range of topics, including:

biography and style

form and analysis

harmony and texture

rhythmic preparation

dynamics and articulation

ornamentation

The Student Workbooks may be incorporated into the lesson or used for at-home enrichment study. Recognizing different learning styles, the authors have included a variety of activities—aural, visual, and kinesthetic.

Answer Book for Student Workbooks

The Answer Book for Student Workbooks is an indispensable companion to the Student Workbooks. Teachers and parents will find the Answer Book to be a useful, convenient, and time-saving resource.

Compact Discs

The recordings offer representative interpretations of the complete works from the Piano Repertoire (Preparatory Level through Level 10) and Piano Etudes (Levels 1 through 10) of Celebration Series Perspectives ® . The recordings may be used by students as a reliable reference and inspiration for a polished performance. Teachers will find these professional recordings an invaluable resource for style-period performance practice.

Handbook for Teachers

The Handbook for Teachers is a comprehensive teaching aid that draws together the Piano Repertoire and Piano Etudes books, the Student Workbooks, and the recordings, and organizes the material for optimum use in the teaching studio. In addition to a detailed discussion of each composition in the Piano Repertoire and Piano Etudes books, the Handbook for Teachers also includes suggestions for presenting and teaching Celebration Series Perspectives ® from start to finish.

Celebration Series Perspectives ® offers a thoughtfully chosen, attractive grouping of piano works for students of all types. The accompanying Handbook for Teachers and Student Workbooks are creative and informative, providing insights and approaches that will help deepen a student’s understanding about music and about practicing. Celebration Series Perspectives ® is a resource that no piano teacher should be without!

Imagine Canada Day, the Fourth of July, or any festive holiday celebration where children and adults enjoy sparklers. These fireworks are bright and flashy and they burn quickly. The sound goal of this piece is a legato but steady RH melody over a crisp and clear staccato LH ostinato pattern with vibrant dynamic contrasts. Ask your student to keep the tempo steady from start to finish.

Presentation

Label the key and form. Ask your student to play the LH in m. 1. What is the LH chord? [C sharp major] Which notes of the C sharp five-finger pattern are played in the cluster? [all but E sharp]

Explore the RH melody. Does it stay within the C sharp major five-finger pattern? [yes]

Shadow-play HS on the closed keyboard cover, focusing on fingering and touch (legato vs. staccato)

Practice Assignment

Encourage your student to warm up with the C sharp major five-finger pattern.

Practice HT in four-measure units, first slowly and then gradually faster as you become more secure.

Find the four-measure question (mm. 1–4) and the answer (mm.

5–8).

Witches and Wizards Christine Donkin

Picture a dark and stormy night with winds swirling as witches and wizards glide through the air. This piece can be quickly learned and memorized (almost magically!) if practiced in sections. Have your student block and discover the patterns of each section. Encourage memorization of the sections as they are practiced.

Witch no. 1 appears in mm. 1–4:

Block the LH D minor chords and RH 3rds in mm. 1–2.

Discover the RH switch in m. 3 to notes previously played by the LH.

Identify the five-finger pattern formed by the LH descending notes in mm. 3–5.

[G minor]

Witch no. 2 appears in mm. 5–8:

Name the key of this section. [G minor] Measures 5–6 are a transposition of mm. 1–2.

Describe what happens in mm. 7–8. [ascending broken chords]

Wizard no. 1 arrives in mm. 9–14:

Find the crossed-hand patterns.

The RH plays a repeated G minor fragment for five measures followed by a

descending scale pattern. What function does the descending scale pattern serve?

[it facilitates the return to D minor]

Notice that both LH voices use the notes C sharp, D, and E, but in reverse order! [the lower notes ascend; the upper notes descend]

Witch no. 1 returns in mm. 15–18:

Is this appearance the same as mm. 1–4? [yes]

Wizard no. 2 arrives in mm. 19–21 to conclude the piece:

Why is this section a wizard and not a witch? [it is a variant of the crossed-hand pattern presented by Wizard no. 1] A descending scale passage effectively ends the piece in D minor.

Emphasize the 6 time signature by feeling two beats per measure using the accents and crossed-hand notes to mark the beats. Your student will need to listen for steady, even eighth notes as you gradually increase the tempo to reflect the spirit of this piece. Follow the mf and p dynamics, the accents, and the poco rit. along with the pedal to help the audience hear the contrasts of these witches and wizards!

Little Prelude in E Minor, BWV 941 Johann Sebastian Bach

This Little Prelude was originally from a manuscript collection of six preludes assembled by the German organist Johann Peter Kellner (1705–1772). The BWV numbers are 939–943 and 999. The latter, 999, was a prelude originally composed for lute and transcribed for keyboard.

This composition has two main points for discussion with your student:

the opening arpeggiated figure which occurs throughout

• the continual suspensions and resolutions present in the upper soprano and alto voices

Suspensions are extremely expressive moments and it may help to imagine singers or instruments holding the sound. Help your student locate the suspensions [mm. 3–4, 4–5, 5–6, 6–7, and 7–8] including the double suspension in mm. 5–6. [alto and soprano moving together!]

Find each occurrence of the RH broken arpeggio figure from m. 1 including inversions and transpositions. [LH m. 3, LH m. 5 (inverted), LH m. 7 (transposed to G major)] As the initial presentation of this figure in m. 1 begins with a rest, remember in subsequent presentations to separate the arpeggio figure from preceding downbeat eighth notes.

the arpeggio figure from preceding downbeat eighth notes. The mid-point of this prelude cadences in the

The mid-point of this prelude cadences in the relative key of G major. [m. 11] How did Bach reach

G major? The F natural in m. 7 begins the process by setting up the dominant 7th [G7] of C. [C

major is IV in G], which begins the traditional cadence of IV–V 7 –I in G at mm. 10–11.

Explore how the musical material in the second half of the prelude. [mm. 11–22] relates to m. 1:

Melodic fragments are often preceded by a rest.

Arpeggio fragments or related zigzag shapes are still used.

The opening RH melody appears in the bass [m. 20] to end the piece.

Note Bach’s use of the Picardy 3rd (G sharp) in the final measure.

The following practice steps will be helpful: • As two- or three-voice counterpoint is used
The following practice steps will be helpful:
• As two- or three-voice counterpoint is used
throughout, it will help to play individual
voices and then pairs of voices, perhaps in
the form of a student-teacher duet.
• Block harmonies when possible, noting the harmonic
movement. In most measures there is only one chord.
