With its highly attractive, full-colour, age-appropriate layout, Poco Piano
for Young Children encourages young children to take the first steps on a
difficult, but thoroughly rewarding journey. Together with the Music Theory
for Young Children books, the Poco Piano for Young Children series leads the
child from the very beginning to grade 1 level.
Poco Piano for Young Children includes exercises to help thechild develop
technique, rhythm and reading, and it involves the child in activities such as
pasting, colouring, tracing, circling and clapping.
In Book 2, three new notes in each hand are mastered (up to Treble High C and
down to Bass Low C) and the child experiences changes of hand position within
a tune. Quavers are introduced in all the time signatures covered in Book 1.
Sharps and flats are included, but no mention is made yet ofkeys, key
signatures, scales or triads. Dynamic markings are now in Italian, while tempo
indications are still in English.
