From the very first lessons in Book 1, students are making music as they explore the piano keyboard through fun improvisation pieces called My Own Song. The beginning of the book introduces finger numbers, the black-key and white-key groups, and basic rhythm patterns. Directional reading is taught first by finger number, then by note name, and then by interval (stop, skip, and repeat). Once the students are introduced to the staff, they learn reading guides Bass F and Treble G and read by interval in several different hand positions.

    I love this 1st book for beginners. I have had success using this book with young students who have never played before. I would recommend it to other teachers.

    This book is okay. It slowly explains the notes and symbols step by step. But children can't have fun with it. The songs are pretty boring and there are only a few that are popular songs that children know. I think this book would be better if the songs...

    were songs that kids are familiar with.
