This First Chart Toppers songbook is a collection of best selling, popular songs arranged for Piano, designed to complement the acclaimed John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course. The songs included in John Thompson's First Chart Toppers are presented in simplified arrangements, making this an ideal repertoire for pupils working through parts two to four of the Easiest Piano Course. The order of the songs is such that they get progressively more advanced, so that as pupils learn more challenging techniques and theory, it is put into practice with a familiar song. The 15 songs included here should be well-known to most, with tunes like Happy by Pharrell Williams, Roar by Katy Perry and What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. The catchy melodies and simple tunes allow pupils to consolidate their learning within a familiar context, since the student will know how the songs are supposed to sound. For the complete list of songs, see below. Because dynamics and phrasing are not introduced until part three of the course, some of the pieces early on in First Chart Toppers do not include this, while outline fingering is included throughout which is especially helpful for pupils at this level. For more advanced students, this book can provide really useful sight reading practice.
So for the perfect complement to the Easiest Piano Course, First Chart Toppers will build your musical repertoire by putting today's top hits at your fingertips.
