The six volumes of Burnam's original series provide a comprehensive, progressive course in Piano technique, combining pedagogical rigour with descriptive titles and iconic illustrations. The book emphasizes playing in a variety of key signatures: major pieces are paired with the relative minor. Written and illustrated by Edna Mae Burnam, a second-generation piano teacher, the books are universally recognized as one of the most practical technique series on the market. Songs in Book 2: Hallelujah • I Dreamed a Dream • I Walk the Line • I Want to Hold Your Hand • In the Mood • Moon River • Once Upon a Dream • This Land Is Your Land • A Whole New World • You Raise Me Up. Paul Harris’s superb Piece A Week series ( reviewed here) is of course an ideal resource for this, but before it appeared, A Dozen A Day was my go-to, and proved very effective.Edna Mae Burnam wrote these 32 short melodies in 1975, after the runaway success of the main core of the A Dozen A Day series. Les exercices sont progressifs, avec des titres et des dessins amusants qui permettent de bien comprendre le but de chaque exercice.

In the photos I've given the blurb about using these exercises as a warm up before the main practice, and I've shown the first and last page, as well as the contents page, to give an idea of progression through the book.

La progression est vraiment très judicieuse, et les 4 premiers exercices peuvent être utilisés dès les premières semaines de découverte du piano ; puis les exercices progressent toujours de façon très logique dans le rythme, dans la position des doigts, les notes piquées, les mesures ternaires (mais basiques, vraiment très simples), la découverte des dièses et des bémols, des accords.
