About Piano Junior

Piano Junior is a creative and interactive piano course for children from the age of 6, which progresses in small, manageable steps. It is a fun and satisfying approach to playing and learning about music, encouraging quick and noticeable progress.

Piano Junior is home to PJ, a robot with great enthusiasm for the piano, who accompanies and motivates children throughout the piano course. On this website you will find a video introduction and demonstrations, audio tracks of all pieces played on an acoustic piano, and further fun practise resources.

This innovative course stimulates and encourages creativity through regular, integrated 'Corners', such as Composing, Improvising, Action, Playing, Technique, Ear Training, Memory, Sight Reading and Music Quizzes. In this way solid musical knowledge and technical ability is acquired. The experience of learning the piano is multifaceted: aural -- with regular ear-training exercises; visual -- with sight-reading; tactile -- with clear explanations of technical aspects of playing and, above all, creative -- with exercises in composing and improvising.

The choice of pieces includes attractive works from the classical period to the present day as well as interesting arrangements of folk tunes and children's songs, classical masterpieces, jazz and pop melodies.

In addition to the Lesson Book (which includes Exercises) at each level there is also: a Theory Book, in which valuable information from the method is worked through and consolidated in a playful, imaginative way.

There is also a Duet Book at each level, to provide motivation for playing the piano with others and a Performance Book with great repertoire, which is fun to play. The Flash Cards included can be used to provide further practice in note reading, or to help with learning musical symbols and terms or rhythm patterns. By collecting the cards from each volume you will acquire a wealth of reference material.

Music greatly enriches the life of a child and Piano Junior aims to provide a musical basis for this in the most creative and motivating way.
