The fresh and appealing music contained in Performance Book 5 expands the rhythmic development of students by using sixteenth notes in compound meters. An eclectic mix of popular styles-from ballads to blues to lively show stoppers-is balanced with favorite repertoire from the Baroque and Classical periods. Performance tips help the student play musically and stylistically. Each piece on the included CD was recorded at a performance tempo and a slower practice tempo.
