Piano Discoveries Off Staff Starter Book
This item is currently unavailable for purchase.
Absolutely delightful! Piano Discoveries is a fabulous, carefully thought-out, and pedagogically sound piano method, supported by adorable, illustrated characters and nurturing colors. The Off-Staff Starter (Discoverer Book) is definitely the first stop for every young student because it takes time to orient the student to playing the black keys and then the white keys, in both cases using pre-staff notation (i.e. letter names in noteheads). It begins with an introduction to posture, finger numbers and the keyboard. Friendly, child-minded songs on the black keys and then the white give the student their first start at "reading" music. This level also includes an introduction to basic rhythm and notes; time signatures 4/4, 3/4 and 2/4; and culminates in reading from the grand staff, one hand at a time, with thumbs on middle C. Once the Off Staff Starter is completed, the student is ready to move onto Level 1A, the Explorer Book. Each level offers a theory book and creative accompaniments in CD and MIDI Disk formats. Each sticker series listed below contains 48 upbeat, encouraging stickers for students at any level and can certainly be used with any method. Your students will love receiving them!.
