This text is aimed at music majors who must pass a piano proficiency examination before graduating. Every chapter is tightly structured around skills that majors must know. Hilley's expert pedagogical approach takes full advantage of Olson's original music (written especially for this text), and the book aggressively pursues its musical goals. Together, the authors have created a compelling and consistent text that synthesizes keyboard skills, music theory, and creativity.
