The First Piano Book for Beginners is the latest version of the Little Pianist: First Steps method books. Although the First Piano Book for Beginners presents the same pedagogical ideas and contains the same as in the previous edition instructive repertoire, a different form of the book was used. Instead of “lesson by lesson” structure the material is presented in the consecutive order of piano playing skills, which are explored in the book. This gives the teachers more freedom and flexibility in adjusting the speed of learning to the abilities and individual needs of different students.
One of the most important strategic pedagogical goals presented in The First Piano Book for Beginners is to build in strict order the process of mastering by the student the basic piano playing skills. Specific teaching strategies and carefully selected repertoire in our book allows the teacher to focus on developing in students the ability to relax hand and to keep it flexible.
