- Perfect Patterns
My studio wouldn't be as successful without this book! If you're contemplating buying it, just do it. This book is great for those that need a break from any method, a student who has lost interest, or a student who needs a pick-me-up to get them playing more comfortably hands together on the piano. This is my all-time favorite piano book. Ever. A little bit of every style and fun to fit any pianist in need of something else to do. 6/5 stars if I could.
Perfect Patterns is one of my ‘go-to’ books, especially for my older beginner students. One of their favorite pieces is Pursuit. I always remind them that the tempo says ‘as fast as possible’. They love that the composer gives her permission to play fast!
My students are having so much fun with this book! These are recital worthy solos. Well done!
I love this book, and have used it with many of my students! They really enjoy the pattern-based solos, and it has gotten some of my reluctant readers out of a rut and into playing with STYLE and pizzazz! Thanks!
Wow, Wow!! I wish I'd checked this book out sooner! The pieces in here 'rock'!! I have SO many students that will benefit and ENJOY playing each and every one of these pieces.I'm getting ready to order a whole stack of this book, alone! EXCELLENT work, Chrissy. (I really hope you're coming out with Perfect Patterns Vol TWO!!)
Love Chrissy's style and so do students!
Perfect Patterns is filled with upbeat, interesting, contemporary sounding pieces that both young and old will enjoy and will definitely grab the attention of your picky students! Excellent collection!
In one word Perfect Patterns is perfect. As a teacher I know how important patterns are for teaching. Students always feel more at ease and are eager to try when they see continuity. Chrissy Ricker provides valuable teaching elements page by page through her melodies that are both captivating and intriguing. I am so pleased to be able to add this to my library. I know it is going to became a fast favorite and a valuable part of my teaching curriculum.
Chrissy Ricker did it again!! Engaging solos, perfect for late beginners who want contemporary-sounding pieces. Patterns are a wonderful teaching tool and make learning fun! Sure to be a studio favorite.
Chrissy can seriously do no wrong. Her pieces are beautiful & relevant for all ages.
