Books

Each level generally has 4 books focusing on different areas of development:

  • Piano/Lesson book – builds general skills
  • Technique – makes sure you create good habits
  • Performance – contains songs more suitable for recitals, etc.
  • Theory – the workbook you’ll write in to learn to read music. If you’re using hand-me-down books, you’ll most likely need a new copy of the theory book since the previous owner probably already completed the worksheets.

Young Beginners (7~11)

We’ll jump right in to “Accelerated Piano Adventures for the Older Beginner”. Note: there is an “International” version of this series. Avoid those and get the US version.
