Bronze – Develops finger coordination, fosters confidence, and prepares for success.
Bronze is designed as a simple introduction for very beginners who have never played piano, or any type of music before. No need to read the staff, count rhythms, or even know the names of the notes (yet!) The Finger Olympiad series is based on solid, modern, scientific learning strategies, avoiding some of the most common frustrations students encounter. Instead focus is on attitudes, achievements and recognition. Finger Olympiad trains and focuses on specific skills for developing complete musicianship. Because of the focus on musical fundamentals, this workbook can be used for either independent study, or in a teacher-student setting as a supplement to any other method.
This beginning book (27 pages) is designed to prepare students of any age to become familiar with musical concepts, and the piano itself. Bronze is the first complete warm up book in the Finger Olympiad warm-up and recognition series. Digital download includes a beginning warm-up book, flash cards, and recognition certificate. As the name indicates, a bronze medal may be ordered to recognize the completion of this level.
This product is designed to be printed 2 sided in color. Consider printing the final 3 pages on cardstock for more durable flashcards and certificate.
NOTE: Bronze builds directly off of the skills introduced in the Fast Start book. Students already comfortable with their finger coordination and all of the concepts introduced in Fast Start may proceed directly to Silver. Students who want to earn their Bronze medal despite being familiar with these concepts may complete Bronze in as quickly as 1 -2 months.
