My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A

My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A (for the Young Beginner). For Piano/Keyboard. Faber Piano Adventures®. Written for ages 5 and 6, My First Piano Adventure captures the child's playful spirit. Fun-filled songs, rhythm games and technique activities develop beginning keyboard skills. Instructional and Method. Young Beginner - Pre-Reading. Instructional book. Accompaniment CD. 88 pages.

Written for ages 5 and 6, My First Piano Adventure® captures the child's playful spirit. Fun-filled songs, rhythm games and technique activities develop beginning keyboard skills. Three distinguishing features of the Lesson Book A make it unique and effective for the young 5-6 year old beginner. 1. A strong focus on technique embedded in the book through playful technique games, chants, and carefully-composed pieces that gently lead the child into pianistic motions. 2. An outstanding CD for the young student to listen, sing, tap, and play along with at the piano. The orchestrated songs on the CD feature children singing the lyrics, which has great appeal to the 5-6 year old beginner. The CD becomes a ready-made practice partner that guides the student and parent for all the pieces and activities in the books. 3. The fanciful art features five multi-cultural children who are also learning to play. These friends at the piano introduce basic rhythms, white key names, and a variety of white and black-key songs that span classical, folk, and blues. Young students will listen, sing, create, and play more musically with Nancy and Randall Faber s My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A. The Lesson Book introduces directional pre-reading, elementary music theory and technique with engaging songs, games, and creative discovery at the keyboard. Young students will enjoy the multi-cultural “friends at the piano” who introduce white-key names, basic rhythms, and a variety of songs which span classical, folk, and blues. Ear-training and eye-training are also part of the curriculum. The Fabers' instructional theory “ACE” - Analysis, Creativity, and Expression, guides the pedagogy of My First Piano Adventure. Analysis leads to understanding, creativity leads to self-discovery, and expression develops personal artistry. The CD for this book offers a unique listening experience with outstanding orchestrations and vocals. The recordings demonstrate a key principle of the course: when children listen, sing, tap, and move to their piano music, they play more musically.

  • November 20, 2012 Great Book

    My 4 year old daughter really enjoys this series. The CD Songs are not too fast, and the lessons are not too hard. If you have a limited music background and you try to teach this, it could be rather frustrating. But with a good teacher and a willing student...

    I highly recommend this!! We will be continuing with the next book.

  • October 06, 2012 Frustrating, but cute

    I love Faber Piano Adventures for my students, so I decided to give this one a go for my beginner 4 yr-old. The thought of the cd was grand! It's a nice book, but there are a few negative things. The tracks on the CD are played so...

    extremely fast, there's no way my poor student's little fingers can keep up. Frustrating. Also, the book itself is not explained in an understandable manner, for teacher or parent. Also frustrating. Otherwise, it's creative and cute. But not user-friendly.

  • August 11, 2012 A nice surprise!

    This is the first time I have used this method book...my young student is enjoying it so much! It is good to be able to focus on development of hand position and fluidity before getting bogged down with all that goes in to music reading. The CD makes the...

    time enjoyable. After a 30 minute lesson, the little girl has said, "It's time to go already???"

  • July 02, 2012 Great for Beginners

    The Piano Adventures series is very "kid friendly," and uses a logical and systematic approach. I was very impressed with this book for the young beginner. The included CD provides the cute accompaniment, allowing me to focus on the student. Excellent!
