Piano Lessons for Kids is the inventive book that unleashes a student’s imagination and love for music! This self-paced, 168-page book spans a semester or a school year, depending how often you visit the subject – once or multiple times in a week.
Adults need no prior musical training and are encouraged to learn right along with their kids. The audio/video materials make this possible.
Students will learn not just to read notes, but also to hear music, compose, and tell a story with the piano – all with songs they really want to play. Separating it from other method books and online programs.
This book – with essential audio/video instruction – solves the problem of having to purchase separate books for note reading, music theory, listening skills, and composing – it’s all here, in one book.
The instruction incorporates the hand shape and technique that classical pianists use, as your child learns familiar songs that everyone loves: Happy Birthday, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Ode to Joy, Minuet in G, Jingle Bells, Joy to the World, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Old MacDonald and more.
Make use of PLAY and CREATIVITY, but most importantly a SEQUENCED LEARNING MAP to develop musicality and a solid hand technique, with influences from Kodaly, Orff, Takadimi, Suzuki, Gordon, Paul Wirth’s Gravity Technique and Irina Gorin’s Russian/Ukrainian finger-numbering system.
Music Learning Map:
Hear, Move, Speak, Sing, Tap, Play, Read, Write (With Improvising and Composing throughout)
