Los Angeles, CA—March 24, 2017
Alfred Music, the leading publisher in music education since 1922, announces the new solo piano series, Solo Xtreme. The term “xtreme” is often used in sports to indicate feats that go beyond the ordinary. The pieces in the Solo Xtreme series encourage piano students to achieve feats beyond the ordinary.
Pieces move beyond single-line melodies that stay in one location, challenging students to move around the keyboard, cross hand-over-hand, use a variety of articulations, play harmonic intervals and accidentals, and use the pedal to create colors and moods, expanding technique and musicianship. At the same time, they expand technique and musicianship.
