Exploring Grade Two features pieces with a rich and varied range of styles to engage the imagination and ear, and to develop specific techniques and musicianship. This collection encompasses solo and duet pieces in both classical and popular styles. Selections are primarily based in keys that closely match exam syllabi technical work for this grade, helping to make connections between repertoire and technical work. A range of modes and other scales (such as whole tone and pentatonic) are encountered through the pieces. A range of exploratory extension tasks link to the repertoire, including analytical-based explorations (such as identifying intervals, patterns, structures and historical context) and improvisation (based upon concepts within the piece, helping to support understanding and creativity away from the page). Exploring Grade Two is packed with exciting repertoire and learning experiences, ideal for teaching, learning, performance and exam preparation. It is compatible with both traditional and leisure/contemporary exam syllabi. Online access to recorded performances is included. Edited by Angela Turner. Oxygen Music stocks a wide range of Hal Leonard Student Piano Library publications including Exploring Grade 2.
