Sharon Goodey: Playing With Colour - 'Hands Together' At The Piano (Book 2)

Books | Piano

Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Author: Sharon Goodey
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Playing With Colour Book 2 continues on from where Book 1 left off, but begins to introduce more sight-reading challenges, and includes the stave proper (minus the graphics) bit-by-bit. This way the students hardly notice the changes and assimilate the standard notation effortlessly. Also book 2 focusses on the difficult ‘hands-together’ technique. Initial or Prep tests can be taken at this point.

Book 2 includes more imaginative original pieces like; Ghost Stories; Swimming with Dolphins; and the ubiquitous Indian song, but also many useful fun titles like: Sticky Toffee and The Football Match.

        The colour-coded system is an easy introduction to note reading for very young children. Bright colours make the book look attractive and cheerful. The length of the book is such that it can be worked through fairly speedily, so that they can progress onto the next level.

        I have used this book with children aged 6 to 9 and they love it. I love it too. Children find it easy to follow because each finger is assigned a colour, so reading the music is simplified. The book includes theory exercises reinforcing what they have learnt. They enjoy colouring in the pictures of keyboards with the colours of the fingers they will use on the notes. Traditional tunes such as Hot Cross Buns and God Save the Queen help with learning new concepts. This is the best beginners series I have used.
