Overview

This book has been designed for the young beginner keyboard player, not as a tutor book, but as a supplement book. The ideas have been developed to help children in the very early stages of music tuition to read the notes in treble clef and play in various positions with the right hand. The visual attractiveness of this book may engage the child's lively imagination and inspire learning in a fun way. The element of rhythm has been removed leaving the focus on pitch to make it less cognitively demanding.

In colouring in the notes, not only is the child developing their reading of notes on the music staff, but is also developing their hand-eye coordination, an essential skill for playing any musical instrument.

All these ideas have been thoroughly enjoyed by many pupils of mine and have been a very good stepping stone to reading and understanding musical notation. The keyboard seems to be an increasingly popular and accessible instrument to many young children that such a book should help an interest in reading and playing music from an early age.
