    I've used the Frances Clark series since it came out 30+ years ago. It has gone thru multiple revisions and updates, but still resonates with me as the best one out there. The other popular series is the Faber "Piano Adventures" series. I often get students from using this...

    series and still feel that this one is better, primarily because it is more focused. Each unit is very clear as to what its objectives are, and the supporting material zeros in on those concepts while at the same time reviewing prior concepts. Students seem to enjoy the pieces. They are often challenging but manageable if the teacher is patient and encourage mastery. My students enter annual piano competitions and always do well both technically and musically. Can't ask for more.

  • 2011-05-17 00:00:00.0 A Great Series!

    I love teaching from The Music Tree series! Level 2A introduces 5 finger patterns, 8th notes, dotted quarter notes, tonic, dominant, and expands a students range up to High C and down to Low C. In my experience students seem to progress through this book quickly in comparison to Level...

    1. One of the first songs in the book is Happy Birthday, always a useful song for kids (and adults) to know how to play!

    My favorite method to teach from is The Music Tree series by Frances Clarke. My students who start in this series read notes better, are generally more musical in their performance and can move around the piano with ease and use proper fingering. If I ever have a transfer student...

    who cannot read notes I put them in the Music Tree series.

    "The Music Tree" series is an adventure in learning music. Part 2A continues where Time to Begin -- Primer and Part 1 end.
