This compact disc contains orchestrated background accompaniments for the pieces in the 2nd Edition Level 1 Lesson Book. Teachers and students will be delighted by newly orchestrated background accompaniments, improvisation opportunities, and the variety of musical textures. Each selection in the book is played twice: first at a slow practice tempo and then at performance tempo. The piano part is included in the slow track. For the performance track, the piano part is omitted or is in the background, allowing the student to be the featured performer. Songs include: Firefly • Mexican Jumping Beans • Mozart's Five Names • Traffic Jam 2nds • Kites in the Sky • Forest Drums • Super Secret Agent • Boogie on Broadway • Song for a Scarecrow • Theme from the London Symphony • Dinosaur Stomp and more. The Enhanced CD also includes standard MIDI files that can be accessed with a computer. When used with your software, keyboard, or synthesizer, the MIDI files allow you to adjust tempos, isolate track playbacks, and transpose to different keys. Special bonus: MIDI files for the Piano Adventures® Level 1 Performance Book and the Level 1 Technique & Artistry Book are also included on this CD.
