”My First Piano Adventure” is written for young beginner piano students ages 5-6. The books in this series focus on the Fabers’ theory system of “ACE” - Analysis, Creativity, and Expression. These techniques guide the pedagogical approach of the series and lead the young beginner to a greater understanding of music while learning to use creativity and expression to develop skill and artistry. The books include games and carefully selected pieces that slowly introduce musical concepts. Another impressive feature of “My First Piano Adventures” is the colorful artwork the features five multi-cultural children who are also learning to play. These friends at the piano introduce primary rhythms, white key names, and a variety of white and black-key songs that span classical, folk, and blues.
Lesson Book B moves the beginner student into staff reading, using engaging songs. Music notation is introduced through stepwise directional reading, pattern recognition, and changing hand positions. Students are also introduced to simplified works of Mozart and Beethoven. The included CD presents a vibrant mix of sounds, from boogie to Beethoven. It can be used as a listening CD to educate as well as an accompaniment CD for play-along.
