The Music Tree series continues the development of complete musicianship by providing the beginner with delightful and varied repertoire. The pupil learns a variety of idioms encompassing folk, jazz and pop.

  • October 24, 2012 Music Tree Primer

    This was the book I began with eons ago. Attractive to children, with a pace that gives them a sense of accomplishment and a logical evolution of very basic piano playing. NOT all in the key of C, thank you very much!

  • September 25, 2012 Excellent Methos

    I have taught Bastien, Faber and Alfred. This method has always been my favorite. Kids can play up and down the keyboard from the first lesson. That beats middle-c approach every time.

  • August 18, 2012 Music Tree - Time to Begin, Primer

    I have used this method to introduce music reading since the 1960s when Frances Clark was still presenting demonstrations at Conventions. It has given a basic foundation, and quite predictably good results for my students over the years. I know there are off-shoots of her ground-breaking work and...

    I have tried them. They are very good but, in my opinion, The Music Tree still is the most fool-proof and thorough. I usually take students through the other levels while supplementing with a lot of other materials. Thank you, Frances Clark!

  • January 15, 2008 Wonderful Method for Learning to Read Music

    I was taught from the Music Tree, and went on to receive a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Piano Performance. I have taught hundreds of students at all levels from many different methods and approaches, and have realized the importance of music reading...

    ability. This is one area I believe, at which Music Tree excels. Now, as a mother of four, I am using Muisc Tree to teach my 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter--and I love it!!! Simple concepts that take them from what they already know to what they need to learn. Very well-paced. They are enjoying and understanding everything and not feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or discouraged by too much too soon. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • July 02, 2007 Solid Method

    This course applies in a practical way all the known principles of music education. Every topic is prepared ahead of time, taught, and then reinforced in every lesson that follows. This course is likely to be successful with almost any student as a result. A key feature of the course...

    is landmark/interval reading. The student is given five landmarks and is then taught to measure by interval to find every other note on the staff. Once the starting note has been found, the other notes are read solely by interval. My only reservation is that the course doesn't aggressively develop key signatures at the elementary level. The student would not see Ab major, for example, until he had studied for at least five years. If the key signature element were there, this might well be a perfect piano course.
