Level 8 Textbook

for graduates of Level 7

Level 8 is for graduates of Level 7 and builds directly on the knowledge from Levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7. The new theory that is taught in Level 8 consists of perfect and plagal cadences, picardy thirds, Grecian modal scales, whole tone scales, chromatic scales, gypsy scales, cut-time, and four-part voice writing... all of which are necessary foundation for college music courses. In addition to eleven of Mayron's original solos, Level 8 includes seven classical favorites with composer biographies: Joy of Man's Desiring (JS Bach), Scene from Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky), Poem (Fibich), Wedding Recessional (Mendelssohn), Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven), Prelude from Carmen (Bizet), Waltz in A Flat (Brahams). Level 8 also contains a four-piano ensemble version of Mayron's popular "Madrid."
