Music Through Time Piano Book 2 by Pauline Hall, Paul Harris

A collection of repertoire books of enjoyable, interesting, and stimulating material for use in the early stages of learning. Pieces are in chronological order, with brief notes placing them in history.


A brilliant idea ... There is now no excuse for the music student to be ignorant of the march of time, and the choice of music here is well varied ... including the extra bonus of piano accompaniments which are playable by even the hamfisted ... these pieces are carefully chosen, well arranged, carefully printed in the OUP tradition, and get away from the ususal run of tutorial backup material ... It's a great idea. Clarinet and Saxophone Magazine

About the Author

Paul Harris has established an international reputation as one of Britain's leading educationalists. He studied clarinet and conducting at the Royal Academy of Music, He then went on to study music education with Professor Keith Swanwick at the University of London. He has well over 200 publications to his name; most are concerned with music education dealing primarily with stimulating and helping young players to develop their musical skills. His compositions also include a number of extended and more serious works. Recently he has made a major contribution to the English National Curriculum. He is an examiner for the Associated Board and adjudicates at music festivals and various national competitions. In addition he has undertaken research into specialist music education for the highly talented - an interest that has taken him to many musical institutions around the world. Pauline Hall graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and then taught in schools and privately. Whilst living and teaching in Harrogate she felt the need for a piano tutor which made learning fun, and which progressed at the pace of her slowest learner. She started by writing little tunes in pupils' notebooks, and these formed the basis of Tunes for Ten Fingers; the Piano Time series developed from this.
