Product Overview

Anyone who has performed a song in front of an audience knows how important a musical introduction to it can be. An intro sets the mood of a piece, establishes a key, and prepares the listener for what is to come. This book is designed to offer piano players a source of intros from which to draw for a variety of musical settings. These are divided into three broad classifications: ballads, medium tempo, and up tempo, and each example is set in three keys to aid in transposing. In addition, the arrangers have provided suggestions for tunes that work well with a particular intro, which are organized into a handy index for quick reference. This book is designed to help pianists develop their own personally-styled intros and arrangements. As with all books in this series, it includes a unique lay-flat binding to help keep the music open on the music stand.
