The first in the Hal Leonard piano lesson book range. Book only version.
From the very first lessons in Book 1, students are making music as they
explore the piano keyboard through fun improvisation pieces called My Own
Song. The beginning of the book introduces finger numbers, the black-key and
white-key groups, and basic rhythm patterns.
Directional reading is taught first by finger number, then by note name, and
then by interval (stop, skip, and repeat). Once the studentsare introduced to
the staff, they learn reading guides Bass F and Treble G andread by interval
in several different hand positions.
