Perfect for a young beginner
15 February 2017
Brilliant book for young students beginning the piano. I teach primary school piano and used to use John Thomson's Easiest Piano book. I have now switched to Me and My Piano and found that students enjoy it much more and learn more from it. Rather than having to explain time signatures, note values, fingering, AND two clefs on the first page, Me and My Piano starts off with playing just the right hand to make sure that the student understand how to read rhythms before confusing them with the bass clef. Then the left hand is introduced separately, which proceeds to playing hands together.
I feel that this is a much better way of teacher the younger student and the kids love the songs with the lyrics underneath that they can sing along to. The teacher accompaniment is also very simple which allows you to concentrate on the student's playing rather than your own.
