Lesson Book Level 1A begins by teaching basic keyboard topography and fluent recognition of white key names in relation to black keys. All instruments in our catalogs and on our shopping site carry the manufacturers' warranties against defects in parts and workmanship. We will be glad to help facilitate the repair or replacement as specified by the manufacturer.

The Ensemble Books contain eight 4-part ensembles, carefully coordinated with material in the Lesson Books. More than 3-million adult students have learned to play the piano using this well-sequenced course. Perhaps this question arises because I am mostly friends with homeschooling, DIY moms like myself.
My biggest advice, even for those who are already piano teachers, is this: different kids should use different book series. For this reason, over the course of 9 years of teaching in over 3 major cities (LA, Dallas, and SLO), I have arrived at a short list of what I believe to be the best books for each age group.
Music for Little Mozarts—┬áMost people are shocked when I say that 3 and 4 year olds can learn to play the piano! I’ve only taught 3-4 adults over my time, and they usually have already had lessons but forgot it all. Every piano teacher has a good supplemental library for their kids, depending on their needs.
If I’ve identified that my student wants to branch out a bit in the world of jazz, this is always my first go-to book.
If I am finding a classical song for one of my beginning students, I check Keith Snell’s Books first.


For the more serious students, I always go back to my trusty Bastien series that I worked on as a child. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to Our Cone Zone with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.
The manufacturer will determine whether the defect is covered under their warranty; we do not make that determination. Also, if a school, school district, or board of education purchases an instrument and resells it to an individual, the manufacturer considers the warranty to be void.
Consult the documentation that came with your product for details in addition to the information below. When you wear these floating keyboard earrings you will hear nothing but music and compliments. Perfect for beginners who prefer a chord approach, students learn how to play chords in either hand in order to move beyond simply playing single note melodies. Instead of paying someone to teach our kids piano, we’d rather figure out a way to do it ourselves. It moves a lot faster, but I’ve still made it work for 4 year olds and 7 year olds alike! 9 times out of 10, if the kid is just beginning piano at age 6 or 7, I put them in this book. Pre A (the one pictured) is great, but the following red book, Level A, is a terrible choice. He has lots of different arrangements, and a series of around 40 books to choose from– everything from Early Romantic, to Baroque and Classical.
The accompanying DVD includes an introduction to all the pages in the book and performances of the pieces by well-known teacher, Gayle Kowalchyk. I was actually able to adapt the Discovery Book to create lessons plans for a Kinder-Music class one year!


The criticism it receives (both from me and other piano teachers), is that kids get too comfortable just playing in one or two hand positions. The songs are fun, the lessons are well timed, never too difficult but always engaging, and they start encouraging students to write their OWN music, using the chord progressions provided!
Titles: Alouette * Alpine Melody * Amazing Grace * At Last * Au Claire de la Lune * Aura Lee * The Ballad of Gilligan's Island * Beautiful Brown Eyes * Blow the Man Down! I have made it my mission to never turn down any kid of any learning ability, regardless of their age. But it covers all the basics in a fun engaging way, with pictures that are reminiscent of old fashioned Winnie the Pooh. They don’t view notes on the whole, and can only think of them in terms of what finger number plays them in what hand position.
All of a sudden, without warning, it jumps up to some really hard stuff, like asking the kid to play in the key of E flat major! It is by far the best way to drill memorization of notes, AND it’s been around for decades. This little book color codes all of the keys on the piano, instead of making the kid draw letters or numbers. After just a few months of piano, most kids will not feel ready for that kind of jump, and when kids get frustrated, they quit.
By the end of Level One, they have graduated from using the black keys to the white keys, even mastering quarter notes and half notes.
