NOTICE: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND WILL BE REPLACED BY EARLY, MID AND LATE ELEMENTARY COLLECTIONS IN EARLY FEBRUARY.
The Supersonics Piano Elementary Collection is designed to provide students with a rich source of supplementary/exam/concert repertoire. The pieces can either be used to supplement your existing method or you can build your own method around them. This book will provide enough repertoire to last for 2-3 years. If you are searching for a comprehensive system you can use the Supersonic Piano Method series. All the pieces featured in this book have free backing tracks available in Supersonics Plus.
