RoadTrip! for Younger Students

RT_Front-cover

 

From the Piano Pronto website

Roadtrip! is a primer level method book for very early beginners ages 4 and up. The multi-key approach offers eighteen songs that are easily taught by note, rote, or number allowing student to master basic music fundamentals while creating a musical memory book that becomes a keepsake item to commemorate their maiden voyage into piano lessons.

18 songs: Non-position based; black key pieces; R.H. & L.H. only pieces; on-staff reading only
Also features: improvisation activities; ear training; composition; teacher duets

 

There will be 4 books in this series, when it’s finished.  The second one, Roadtrip! Outdoor Adventure is available now and I have copies at the O’Connor Music Studio.  Also planned are Farm Adventures and an Outerspace Adventure.

What this means for the O’Connor Music Studio – younger beginners will be able to get a great start to their musical lives.  Previously, I’ve only accepted students starting at age 6.

Starting with the new school year, interested parents can enroll their students from the age of 4.

Antonei Sergejvitch Tartarov plays Mozart

Antonei Sergejvitch Tartarov  was a fictional Russian pianist whose real name was Jean-Jacques Hauser.

He had an exceptional gift for improvisation.

On April 16, 1968 Hauser fooled an audience of 2,000 people in Zurich into thinking not only that he was a little-known Russian virtuoso (Tartarov), but that much of the improvised material in his program was composed by Beethoven, Mozart, Prokofiev, and Liszt.

Imagine when it was announced that the music the audience had just applauded as works of genius had actually been improvised on the spot by a home-grown Swiss pianist.

Coming Soon for Younger Students!

This new method book is at the publishers right now.  I’ve already downloaded the Teacher’s Guide and I’m liking what I see.
