I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
We recently got a new keyboard, as we are waiting on getting a new piano next year. In the mean time, I am glad to see the kids have immediately taken to playing the piano. However, we don’t have time for official lessons at the moment. I am trying to teach the kids a little bit on my own (having taken lessons for many years as a kid), with a variety of different materials. I was excited to hear about the Piano for Kids piano method book, from publisher Hal Leonard.
Piano for Kids is a fun, easy course that teaches children to play piano or keyboard faster than ever before. Popular songs such as “Let It Go,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Heart and Soul,” “We Will Rock You” and more famous classical/folk tunes will keep kids motivated. The clean, simple page layouts ensure their attention remains on each new concept. Every new song builds on concepts they have learned in previous songs, so kids can progress with confidence. The method can be used in combination with a teacher or parent.
My kids like to play around on the keyboard a lot and sound things out, so this book is perfect. “Piano for Kids” has step-by-step instructions on how to get started with the piano. I like that it teaches the basics of the piano, and then has a bunch of super easy songs that kids can learn to play. A lot of the songs are very recognizable, such as music from popular kid’s movies.
Since we got “Piano for Kids”, we added two more Hal Leonard books to our collection. There are so many to choose from, including a beginner ukulele book that my daughter got for her birthday alongside a pink ukulele, and a book of easy Christmas songs that I can play this holiday season.
We really like our Hal Leonard books, and I know we will be purchasing more in the near future. Not only do they have instructional books, but their overall selection of music is extensive, from kid’s music to classical to other styles, music from movies and artists, and more.
