    My little brother is just beginning to read and I bought this book for him so I could teach him. He is my first student and I wasn't exactly sure where to start with him. I found this and I am impressed with the ease with which he can...

    practice the first few songs. He likes it a LOT! He has not made it quite yet to where he can read the notes yet, but this book introduces students to how to hold your hands as you play, which fingers are which, and just the basics of playing the piano. A MUST HAVE FOR ANY TEACHER OR STUDENT JUST STARING.

    MTTP is an intensive multikey method similar to the Robert Pace approach. In Pre-Reading Experiences, the student learns all major five-finger positions as well as the I and V7 chords (3 note versions) in pre-reading notation. Rhythm includes both 4/4 and 6/8 time, and note...

    values progress to eighth notes and dotted quarter notes. Key names are developed early, and note names and steps and skips on the staff are introduced by the end of the book. Follow this with First Reading Experiences. This course is best used wtih students 8 year of age or older.

  • February 04, 2006 For bright children you can't do better

    I've been teaching for over 20 years using this series of Bastien for my bright young(4-8)students. This gives them a foundation that no other series gives. They start without the staff and play all 12 keys/positions with ease after just a few short months. Bastien...

    gradually moves them to reading on the staff, which is more difficult for some than others, but wow, the results are amazing. Kids can transpose and read music much more easily with this than with other beginner Bastien and Alfred series. I've designed a series for adults that is based on the same principles in French. I only wish that they continued it past the 3rd level Reading!!!
