Children's Pop Piano is an interesting voyage around the world of Pop, intended for young developing pianists. In today's media led culture, it is inevitable that young people inhabit a musical environment heavily influenced by Pop culture. Often in teaching this style is ignored, but it is certainly a form that should be considered as part of instrumental training.
Alongside the standard classical repertoire, Children's Pop Piano will considerably widen the variety of styles, and subsequently interest, available to the pupil. There are three books starting from the easiest possible settings to moderately advanced. This is the first with 14 simple and enjoyable pieces for beginners including: The Entertainer, Rock Around The Clock and House of The Rising Sun, as well as some Heuman originals, all arranged for Piano or keyboard solo.
