I stumbled upon this excellent Youtube clip late last night. I am a late night surfer (of the internet!) and I was delighted to find this two minute lesson for your children. It’s a great idea to teach young kids all about instruments and the different sounds they make. It will enhance their learning skills and will hopefully ignite an interest in music at a very young age.
This clip is short and to the point – so gather the children around your computer.
For much more information about practising repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece.
If you’re thinking about learning to play the piano, my guide-book, So You Want To Play The Piano? (Alfred) is full of useful help and support.
The Faber Music Piano Anthology (Faber) is also a valuable resource for those who desire a collection of standard repertoire from Grades 2 – 8, featuring 78 pieces in total.
I have written a selection of educational piano music (both solo and duet) and you can hear it and find out much more here: EVC Music Publications.
