Piano students of Latin American heritage often do not relate to the folk tunes that most methods use because the majority of those melodies do not flow with the rhythm of the Spanish language. This method is based on melodies original to the Mexican culture. These children's songs flow more naturally with the language, and in accord with the Kodaly method of music education, give a better foundation for teaching basic musical elements in a Spanish language culture. Coupled with constant work on sight-reading, this new method is a valuable tool for native Spanish speakers in learning to play the piano, and will serve as a helpful and interesting supplement to English speaking students.

Muchas veces los alumnos de piano de herencia latina no se identifican con la musica folklorica utilizado en los metodos de piano porque la mayoria de las melodias no fluyen con el ritmo del espanol. Este metodo esta basado en melodias originales de la cultura mexicana. Estos cantos de ninos fluyen con mas naturalidad con el idioma, y de acuerdo al metodo Kodaly de la educacion musical, dan un mejor fundamento para la ensenanza de elementos musicales basicos en una cultura de habla hispana. Junto con un trabajo constante de la lectura a primera vista, este nuevo metodo es un instrumento valioso para que aquellos cuya lengua materna es el espanol aprendan a tocar el piano con mas facilidad, y servira como un suplemento benefico e interesante a los estudiantes de habla inglesa.
