All the requirements for the Irreducible Minimum Musicianship Tests and Musicianship Phases of the National Guild of Piano Teachers Auditions, from elementary through preparatory (advanced) levels, are presented here. But this book isn't just to prepare students for National Guild auditions. It offers a solid regimen of theory and technical practice for the benefit of any student. The first part of the book contains sections on scales, chords and cadences, and arpeggios from elementary through intermediate levels. The second part expands these subjects through advanced levels to include diminished and augmented chords and seventh-chord arpeggios. The book ends with examples suggesting how to practice transposition, sight-reading, and ear training.
