(the following is excerpted from the Preface to PIANO Plus!)
PIANO Plus! is a comprehensive approach to making music at the piano based on the conviction that all knowledge of music must start with music itself. At the heart of this conviction is the quality and variety of the chosen musical repertoire. Each of the songs in this book has been selected for its intrinsic value and appeal.
From each of these pieces, elements of music theory, technique, studies, ear training, sight reading, and music history are drawn. In this way, the learning of all aspects of music is immediate and relevant.
Robert Baird, author, PIANO Plus!
