This review is introducing the only existing and pioneering book of piano pedagogy in Egypt and the Arab World by Egyptian piano professor Dr. Hoda Sabry. The New Program in Teaching Piano, 1975, is one result of Dr. Sabry’s dissertation, The Adaptation of Class Piano Methods as Used in the United States of America for the use in the Egyptian Educational System, Indiana University Bloomington, 1965.
The review begins by introducing the book, and who is the composer of the book, academically and personally. Then a general overview of the book is introduced, to be assisted by different types of illustrations. Finally, in the end, the reviewer deduces several aspects related to the uniqueness of the book, hoping that it will get proper acknowledgment in the local and regional piano pedagogy scene. For the teachers around the world, a detailed table of the contents and objectives of the book is included in an appendix.
