The second part of Volume 1 of the First Piano Book introduces the half note (or minim). The music in this set, therefore, has been written using whole notes, half notes only. It is recommended for those who have played through a handful of the pieces in Part I and are ready to learn some more challenging music. All the music has been recorded and the download includes a 20 page PDF of the sheet music with introductory notes as well as MP3 files for each of the 16 pieces in this set. The introductory notes outline and explain all the new aspects of music notation used in Part II that didn’t appear in Part I. Click here for more information about Part II and to listen to the audio.
