Written for ages 5 and 6, My First Piano Adventure captures the child’s
playful spirit with fun-filled songs, rhythm games and technique activities
which develop beginning keyboard skills.
Three distinguishing features of the Lesson Book A make it unique and
effective for the young 5-6 year old beginner.
1. A strong focus on technique embedded in the book throughplayful technique
games, chants, and carefully-composed pieces that gently lead the child into
2. An outstanding CD for the young student to listen, sing,tap, and play
along with at the piano. The orchestrated songs on the CD feature children
singing the lyrics, which has great appeal to the 5-6 year old beginner. The
CD becomes a ready-made practice partner that guides the student and parent
for all the pieces and activities in the books.
3. The fanciful art features five multi-cultural children who are also
learning to play. These friends at the piano introduce basicrhythms, white
key names, and a variety of white and black-key songs that span classical,
folk, and blues.
The Lesson Book introduces directional pre-reading, elementary music theory
and technique with engaging songs, games, and creative discovery at the
keyboard. Young students will enjoy the multi-cultural friends at the piano
who introduce white-key names, basic rhythms, and a variety of songs which
span classical, folk, and blues. Ear-training and eye-training are also part
of the curriculum.
The Fabers’ instructional theory ACE – Analysis, Creativity,and Expression,
guides the pedagogy of My First Piano Adventure. Analysis leads to
understanding, creativity leads to self-discovery, and expression develops
personal artistry. The CD for this book offers a unique listening experience
with outstanding orchestrations and vocals. The recordings demonstrate a key
principle of the course: when children listen, sing, tap, and move to their
piano music, they play more musically.
