Alfred Music Adds New Levels to “Xtreme” Piano Series

June 22, 2018

Solo XtremeAlfred Music, the leading publisher in music education since 1922, announces the addition of books 4, 5, and 6, to the overwhelmingly popular solo piano series, Solo Xtreme.

The term "xtreme" is often used in sports to indicate feats that go beyond the ordinary. The pieces in the Solo Xtreme series encourage piano students to achieve feats beyond the ordinary. The pieces challenge students to change locations, cross hand-over-hand, use a variety of articulations, play harmonic intervals and accidentals, and use the pedal to create colors and moods.
