Maybe you’re a piano teacher already. Maybe you’re a pretty awesome one. But teaching piano to preschoolers is a whole other can of jelly beans. If you try to teach these little ones “traditionally” you’re not going to have any fun, and neither are they.

Preschoolers need to move, sing and explore. They need to PLAY. We know this, but it can be hard to make piano lessons fun while still being purposeful. I’ve been there, I’ve tested every approach, and in this book I’ve broken down the most effective teaching strategies for preschool piano as well as how to structure your lessons for maximum success.

Learn how to take the playful approach to teaching piano to 3–5 year olds and watch your littlest piano students thrive.

Piano For Kids: Teach complete beginners how to play instantly with the Musicolor Method – for preschoolers, grade schoolers and beyond! (Musicolor Method Piano Songbook)

WHY EVERY PARENT & MUSIC TEACHER SHOULD USE THIS SONGBOOK! Learning to make music provides an excellent path to development in children. Plus it is joyful and fun. But learning has not always been easy. Traditional methods start with abstract symbols and concepts. The author began searching for a simpler, more intuitive way to teach music to his then three-year-old son. In his search, he began combining ideas from the worlds of design, early childhood education, film scoring and even storytelling. Thus, the Musicolor Method® was born. For over a decade, it has become a proven way to quickly and gently introduce real music making skills to preschoolers and beyond.
