My First Piano Book

by Karen Marshall

Part of the Get Set! Piano Series

My First Piano Book Synopsis

My First Piano Book introduces young children to the piano and music-making through fun activities, rhymes, songs and pieces. The author's tried-and-tested progression covers note learning, theory, aural and composing through a creative and holistic approach. Many pieces have simple teacher duet parts to encourage ensemble playing from the start, and the book is illustrated throughout in the charming Get Set! style. This carefully designed tutor will inspire, entertain and, most importantly, nurture a love of music that can last a lifetime. Suitable for children aged 5 years and over, this book facilitates a seamless transition from pre-stave reading onto stave reading, leading effortlessly into the highly acclaimed Get Set!
