Overview
33 Variations On A Waltz By Diabelli Op. 120

Following the very successful piano method published in two volumes between 1958 and 1962, the three-volume European Piano Method represents anew textbook which takes into account the development of modern piano p edagogy. Volume 1 - The most natural way of creating and nurturing the relationship of a child with an instrument is to stimulate and encourage the child to find on the keyboard, and to play by ear, all the tunes he or she has so far assimilated. Not only children's songs or folk songs are suitable for this but also other melodies that may be heard at home, at school, in church, on the radio and on television. The natural progression, from singing and listening to playing, forms the foundation for the development of listening ability and musicality. During a lifetime with an instrument one should always try to replay on it everything that one has heard. The child should, at the same time, be made familiar with the whole keyboard by touch as well as by ear, from the lowest register to the highest. the young player should already have a feeling of contact with the keyboard before piano playing is combined with the complicated process of reading music. Playing only on the black keys to begin withwill offer a particularly good opportunity to grasp the arrangements of the black keys (literally) 'grasping'. For improvised melodies, too, th e pentatonic scale formed by the black keys is easier to handle at the beginning stages than the diatonic scale of the white keys. For this reason, an introductory section 'Playing with the Black Keys' has been included. Here the teacher, through such material, should encourage the beginner to become familiar with the keyboard. Another advantage in beginningthis way lies in the fact that training the functions of the motorial s ystem does not only start within the narrow stretch of the fingers but with the larger playing apparatus of the arms and the whole body. In thisway tension can be avoided. The suggestions for improvisation and song accompaniement given at the beginning (on the 'yellow' pages) should notnecessarily be dealt with all at once before the chapter 'Playing from Printed Music' but should rather be gradually incorporated into lessons.Here, the printed music is intended primarily for the teacher who will play through the exercises. The pupil plays from memory rather than fromthe book
