Written with busy music majors in mind, The Piano Proficiency Exam Review Book provides an easy-to-understand guide to the Piano Proficiency Exam.

While studying the book, students can expect to ask themselves, "Am I at the proper distance from the piano?" and, "Are my wrists level with the white keys?" among other gentle reminders that encourage mindfulness and positivity at thepiano bench.
Whether adapted for a school's exam requirements, private lessons, music therapy sessions, or general music classes, lessons and exercises in The Piano Proficiency Exam Review Book will make time spent at the piano an enjoyable experience.
