Poco Piano For Young Children - Book 1

Instrumental Tutor | Tuition
Instrumentation Piano
Publisher Alfred Music Publications

With its highly attractive, full-colour, age-appropriate layout, Poco Piano For Young Children encourages young children to take the first steps on a difficult, but thoroughly rewarding journey. Together with the Music Theory for Young Children books, the Poco Piano For Young Children series leads the child from the very beginning to grade 1 level.

Poco Piano for Young Children includes exercises to help the child develop technique, rhythm and reading, and it involves the child in activities such as pasting, colouring, tracing, circling and clapping.

Book 1 introduces the child to the keyboard, staves, clefs, simple time signatures, note values and rests. Reading encompasses notes to a 5th above and a 5th below Middle C. The notes A and E are introduced first, played by a braced 3rd finger of each hand. This encourages free movement of the whole arm from the shoulder, and develops a natural, balanced hand position, before the 5-finger position is gradually mastered. The first line of the treble stave and the fifth line of the bass stave are highlighted, and further lines are similarly treated as the child learns more notes. Staccato, slurs, ties, upbeats and repeat signs are all experienced in Book 1. Tempo and dynamic markings encourage musical playing, and are in English, in order to avoid “knowledge overload”.

I love the fact that the very first notes are played with 3rd fingers.
Children love pasting stickers.

SPALDING GB These make lessons fun
I love the way the songs reflect the note names. Children learn them before the realise.
Students seem to sail through the corresponding theory pages in the theory book. I would appreciate more theory to do in lesson & then recap at home.
