SAMPLE PAGES - I CAN READ MUSIC

I CAN READ MUSIC is a great way to start your child reading music

                                     

 

                                 Picture of piano keyboard with I CAN READ MUSIC colored stickers installed.

Above you'll see a sample of the first page from the activity section of our book, I CAN READ MUSIC (ISBN # 0-9718936-4-0) and below it a picture of how your piano will look after you apply the six removable I CAN READ MUSIC colored stickers to your piano keys.

Children readily understand that the five horizontal lines on the page are equivalent to the five blue stickers on the piano. 

You're now ready to play games and understand how to read music!

We take it so slowly that every child is allowed to gain confidence with each easy-to-understand step.

The object of the sample page above is to let the child know that the landscape of this "game" is five horizontal lines. That's the playing field, reduced to the most basic elements, and it will never change. 

Children are put at ease by the simplicity of each carefully graduated concept. It's easy to scale this skillfully constructed, graded curriculum.

Any child could start with this book, but we've found that kids who start playing piano "by number," perhaps using PIANO IS EASY or THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT, make the easiest transition to reading sheet music. See also THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER

Our method was created by a leading children's music educator, Emmy Award winning composer and Broadway veteran John Aschenbrenner, whose distinguished academic background includes the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Southern California, and Trinity College of Music, London. 

PIANO IS EASY and I CAN READ MUSIC have demonstrated far higher than average results in motivating children to continue and enjoy their piano studies.

WHY IS THIS METHOD DIFFERENT?

Reading music can be confusing.Our books are designed to provide kids with preparation for piano lessons, a fun process kids can do at home, before they start regular piano lessons.

All other piano methods start kids far too quickly, causing early frustration and eventually leading most kids to quit.

We've found this failure can be prevented by starting your child playing piano "by number" at home, and then making a slow, smooth transition to reading sheet music using our book, I CAN READ MUSIC!

This "Fun Method" has proven results, turning kids into happy, interested experimenters who enjoy tinkering with the piano.

PIANO IS EASY and I CAN READ MUSIC are the best way to properly prepare your child for success with piano lessons. 

Here's a comment from a recent customer: "Just wanted to let you know that we received our PIANO IS EASY book! What a blast! My 9-year old briefly had piano lessons in the past, but she couldn't motivate herself to practice much. Since I gave her this book, I can hardly get her away from the piano! What a great product! Thanks!"

It's easy to include PIANO BY NUMBER in kids piano lessons.

A good start leads to further interest!
