The music is all double-stave "Grand Staff" pianomusicin treble and bass clef, and is a collection of mostly well-know earlyand early-mid level piano pieces, along with a few veryinteresting originals by the authors as well. Theaccompaniment tracks are the most exciting in the series, particularlydue to the deeper musical selections. Level 4introduces 32ndnotes, ornaments and trills, more on key signatures, relative major andminor tonal centers, advanced scales, interpretation coaching andmetronome markings, among many otherconcepts. Level 4 helps preparethe student for the broad expanse of other pianoliterature available.
