Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Learn how to play the piano with this addition to the "How to Improve at Playing" series! This how-to guide provides a detailed description of the parts of the piano, including the keys and the pedals. It also provides explanations of rhythm and time signatures. We can learn basic hand placement for the left and right hands from this book and are guided to play with both hands together. The book explains the importance of practice and provides scales and exercises for learning basic notation, site reading, and singing along. The final chapter wraps up a new interest in the piano by detailing significant players in history such as Sergei Rachmaninoff and Oscar Peterson. Students can use the instruction and information provided here to begin home lessons or to learn more about the piano before beginning paid lessons. The simple text, instructive images, and many practice pieces will capture the interest of an eager young student. Check the glossary in the back for key terms in learning the piano. The educational element of the "How to Improve at Playing" series serves well for learning in or out of the classroom! Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
