Piano ABC's - Level One

Beginning at the Beginning

Authored by Beverly Grace Joy
Illustrated by François Arnaud

Piano ABC's Level One is designed for students who want to easily learn to read notes with confidence, understand counting, and play enjoyable music. All ages have found this beginner method easy to understand, and consistently become skillful in reading music. Piano ABC's, an original, 21st-century student-friendly beginner piano method appeals to piano students of every age. The approach to note reading and rhythm is readily understood, innovative, and logical. Beginning piano students, adults and teen piano beginners, as well as children who start lessons with the Piano ABC's beginner book, learn quickly and with assurance, so they generally accomplish in one book what would require multiple books from most of the current traditional beginning piano methods. A new follow-up volume, Piano ABCs One PLUS, offers fresh musical concepts and engaging new pieces like Celebration Day and The Clapping Song that students love to play over and over again.

All levels of the Piano ABC's beginner piano method continue to facilitate a faster pace for understanding musical concepts and well-coordinated playing. Learning to read notes alphabetically is very simple and intuitive; and, in contrast to the haphazard position-approach of so many current beginner piano methods, Piano ABC's progresses incrementally. The incremental approach is the way one learns language, math, or any skill-development discipline. Rhythmic instruction integrates physical and intellectual activities. Introduction of easily written graphic symbols help first-time students understand the proportional relationships between longer and shorter notes as well as the varied metrical (time signature) patterns. These beginner piano books present attractive, original compositions in diverse styles and modes created with the student in mind (parents have commented that they do not tire of listening to these pieces); and the engaging illustrations by François Arnaud stimulate students' artistic imaginations.

The varied "streams" of music theory and pedagogical categories introduced in the Piano ABC's Level One beginner piano method are continued and expanded in all other levels throughout. This is an original, unique, patented, beginner piano method endorsed by nationally- and internationally-acclaimed piano pedagogues. The organized and clearly presented lessons progress steadily and are readily understood visually and conceptually by both teacher and student.

If you are teaching the Piano ABC's Level One beginner piano method for the first time, be sure to check out the companion book for teachers,"Lesson Plans for Beginning Piano Teachers of Beginning Pianists" in which the author provides a wealth of information to facilitate the teaching of beginning piano students. Even experienced teachers have happily expressed that "Lesson Plans" has enhanced their own professional expertise. The conclusion of many teachers is that the use of this beginner piano book, with its subsequent levels in the Piano ABC's curriculum, clearly demonstrates that students can easily learn to read successfully having never been exposed to the C-position approach (still relied upon by most beginning piano methods) that has obstructed fluent reading for many students for too long. 90 pages.
