In addition to the Pop Keyboard Course, Tritone has two specialized Junior Programs. Music Street is a three year program for children who are four or five years of age when they begin. Keyboard Corner is a two year program for children who are six or seven years of age when they begin.
T.M.A. Pop Keyboard Course is an organized, step-by-step method designed for students anywhere from eight years old to senior.
The approach used allows for fast and motivating progress. Songs in the books are carefully chosen to appeal to most musical tastes and cover a wide variety of popular styles. In addition to learning all the basics of good musicianship that include ear training, note reading, rhythm, technique and theory, students are also guided in the operation of the instrument so that every song may be developed to its fullest potential.
Theory worksheets, technique exercises, sound and tempo suggestions, general product information and reference pages are included in each book to provide a thorough curriculum for the students and teachers. Creativity, arranging, orchestration and improvisation are also encouraged and developed, and supplementary songs are often given to fit the individual needs of a student. The result is a student who is comfortable playing almost any style of popular music along with their own touch of creativity.
