As piano students get older, traditional method books become less and less appealing. Teenagers are eager to skip skill-building exercises to get to the music. After all, technical exercises rarely appeal to the musical tastes of teens. But skipping over scale practice, rhythm work, improvisation, and sight reading hampers their musical development, slows their progress and, ultimately, leaves them frustrated.
This inevitably leads to a lose-lose situation for piano teachers: allowing teens to skip technical exercises delays their progress while forcing teens to play technical exercises creates frustration.
So, we decided to turn this struggle into a win-win! With WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Studies For Piano 1: A Pop-Infused Lesson Companion To Reinforce Scales, Chords, Triads, and Left-Hand Patterns, we’ve created a resource that transforms exercise-based repertoire into motivating pop piano studies.
Your teen students will become skillful players because they want to practice exercise-based repertoire not because they have to practice exercise-based repertoire. The first 10-15 minutes of their lessons will be transformed from “sit and drill” to “make awesome music” as your teens gain comfort in a variety of key signatures and internalize the fingering patterns and hand shapes needed to become fluent intermediate pianists.
