Supersonics Piano Method Level 5 cover

Inspire your students to become lifelong lovers of the piano with Level 5 of the Supersonics Method for intermediate players.

Build student confidence by consolidating lessons learned with fun-to-play pieces they’ll love. Expand their repertoire with a diverse range of world music, modern pop melodies and historical pieces from different eras.

Challenge them to pick extra intermediate piano sheet music to learn – and see their eyes light up as they use their hard-earned skills to play music they adore.

There’s nothing more rewarding.

Just like Level 4, the lessons in this book are as flexible as you need them to be. Mix and match the music with your lessons or play each piece in the order presented. And when paired with a general music theory book, the advanced intermediate music gives students the opportunity to put theory into practice.

We guarantee you’ll love this intermediate piano lesson book. It maintains the learning focus of earlier method books, while challenging students to be independent performers with engaging solos, online backing tracks and creative activities.

This book incorporates the second half of Pop School Level 2. Your students will love creatively exploring the different accompaniment styles featured.

By the end of the Supersonics Piano Method Level 5, your students will be confident performers who have a broad appreciation for a vast range of music. They will also be able to work in every major and minor key. With your guidance – they’ll have become a lifelong lover of the piano.
