Krystyna Gowik, My Little World
A collection of 12 pieces perfect for students at grade 2 and beyond in music schools of first degree. The author has succeeded in combining two functions in these miniatures: they are ideal for teaching and filled with pedagogical concepts, but they are also simply extremely melodic, inspiring and stimulating for the imagination – of both the listener and the little pianist. On their basis, the teacher can introduce and discuss many technical aspects of playing – phrasing, pedalling basics, hand placement, dynamic contrasts, differentiated articulation of both hands – but they also provide an opportunity to work on the expression and expressiveness of the piece. The charming, colorful illustrations are an added bonus of the collection.
