A Thousand Stories For A Little Pianist

A Thousand  Stories For A Little Pianist

A Thousand Stories for a Little Pianist allows young pianists to be creative and take part in the learning process. Stories, games, and colors are part of a child's daily life; this book uses them to bring music into the child's world, rather than bringing the child into the music lesson. The origins of this method are in the treasures of the Russian school of piano and are specifically based on the teaching approach of Anna Artobolevskaya and Heinrich Neuhaus.

The book includes a full description of the teaching philosophy, 71 pieces of music suggested for beginning piano students and some dazzling full-page color illustrations.

My First Music Book is a series of interactive teaching tools designed to be used in group music classes for children 3 to 5 years of age. This foundation course engages and prepares young students for further private piano lessons providing the necessary education for young students before sitting down at the piano.

The attractive stories in this book foster students’ imaginations and readily stick in their minds. This easy and fun process gives young students a strong foundation to be used throughout their education in music.

Using these books children will learn:
The musical alphabet
The note values
The musical staff
The basics of the keyboard
The dynamics

This book can be also used as a self study tool for learning the musical alphabet at home with help of a parent.

About teaching this book in a group class
Each class is half an hour long and includes sing-along children songs, listening and repeating tonal and rhythm patterns, listening to the teacher play a few age appropriate songs on the piano (see A Thousand Stories for a Little Pianist), playing matching games on the white board, playing along with musical instruments such as egg shakers and cymbals and, of course, story time.

The stories in My First Piano Book are used in story time to teach one symbol or musical alphabet in each class. Reviewing the symbols over and over in class will help the students remember them forever.
