PIANO FOR THE DEVELOPING MUSICIAN, 6th Edition delivers a wealth of performance music for the music major who must pass a piano proficiency before graduating. The Online Tutorials, which is a virtual second book, add author guidance and more practice music to the components of every chapter. The pedagogical structure divides every chapter into Exemplary Repertoire (the keynote composition), Topics to Explore and Discuss (musicology), Technique (skill at the piano), Reading (sight-playing), Keyboard Theory (theory), Harmonization (theory), Transposition (theory), Improvisation (theory and creativity), Ensemble (multiple pianos), Composition (theory and creativity), and Subsequent Repertoire (further exploration of the keynote concepts). With a flexibility that allows students or instructors to control individual or class progress, Hilley?s expert pedagogical approach takes full advantage of Olson?s music (much of which was written especially for this text), as well as music from the keyboard literature. Together, the authors have created a compelling and consistent text that synthesizes keyboard skills, music theory, and creativity in every chapter and coordinates with the theory curriculum.

Martha Hilley joined the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin School of Music in 1982 as Coordinator of Group Piano and Pedagogy. Throughout her career, she has been active in piano pedagogy, teaching on the national, state, and local levels, as well as internationally in Italy, Belgium, Australia, Norway, Austria, and Taiwan. Hilley has been the recipient of numerous awards for excellence in undergraduate teaching throughout her career, including the Texas Excellence Teaching Award, 1983; a Dad's Association Centennial Fellowship, 1988; and the Texas Music Teachers Association's Outstanding Collegiate Teacher,1997. In 1992, Hilley received the prestigious Orpheus Award presented by Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia in recognition of her contributions to the field of music. She was the first College of Fine Arts faculty member to be awarded the William Blunk Endowed Professorship (1998). In 2002, Professor Hilley was named as the first MTNA Foundation Fellow for the state of Texas. Ms. Hilley was inducted into the University of Texas Academy of Distinguished Teachers in the fall of 2005. Professor Hilley was honored with the Music Teachers National Association Distinguished Service Award at the 2008 MTNA National Conference in Denver, CO. This award recognizes an MTNA leader who has provided significant and lasting volunteer service to the association. Hilley is coauthor of two college piano texts: PIANO FOR THE DEVELOPING MUSICIAN and PIANO FOR PLEASURE, the first texts to embrace digital sequencer technology through disks and the first to provide Web-based computer tutorials.
