- Music style from Bach to the Blues, pop, and traditional melodies
- CD: most of the pieces are with a very rhythmical accompaniment. Propose 3 ways of working: 1) to play the melody in a slow tempo 2) to play the melody the final tempo 3) to play the melody only with only the accompaniment (like in a karaoke situation)
- At the end, diverse and progressive exercises
- Duet
- Throughout the method, there are exercises for the musical theory
