good theory books : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread

i just graduated from college with a degree in music and piano pedagogy. i plan to studio teach. i've been using many different method books over the past few years in an attempt to find one with a solid theory basis. i still have yet to find one that i really think covers everything. does anyone have one that they think works really well? any suggestions would be great! thanks.

Check out the Keith Snell books from Kjos (Prep-Level 10). The higher levels would challenge most undergraduate freshmen! They also include some history. Many units stand alone, so I try to skip around and make the currently assigned unit tie in with the lesson.

The books John is referring to are titled "Fundamentals of Piano Theory" by Martha Ashleigh and Keith Snell.
