Designed for parents who studied piano themselves, and who now wish to include piano in their curriculum before starting formal lessons, this easy-to-use guide features the parent information on the left-hand page, and the student page on the right. The parent guide suggests steps for introducing the concept, follow-up practice suggestions, and review ideas. The student pages feature fun illustrations, simple instructions that are easy to understanding, and hands/keyboard diagrams that are numbered so students know what finger to use to play each key. This course covers notes, rests, finding each note on the keyboard, rests, bass & treble clef, Middle C position, and C position on the grand staff. The included CD contains a recording of every piece in the book. Based on Alfred's Kid's Piano Course. 96 pages, softcover.
