Overview

Let’s face it—learning to play the piano can seem intimidating to a kid. Fussy formal instruction that teaches complicated musical notation and the classical repertoire that children typically find uninspiring can frustrate an early love for music.

It needn’t be this way. As seen on national public television, Scott “The Piano Guy” Houston is the leading authority on fast and fun piano instruction. Play Piano in a Flash for Kids! simplifies his unique and effective method for learning to play piano, making it accessible to even the youngest aspiring pianists. This book gives children the tools they need to play their favorite popular songs, while de-emphasizing musical reading so that they can focus on having fun while becoming good players.

Kids and their parents can enjoy learning the piano or keyboard together, or children can work through the book on their own, with parents providing support only when needed.

Play Piano in a Flash for Kids! will help your child to:

  • Learn the basics of piano playing by employing “lead sheet notation,” a simple reading technique used by professional musicians worldwide
  • Play alone or with minimal guidance
  • Master each stage of learning using easy-to-follow, step-by-step illustrations
  • Play popular music on the piano
Play Piano in a Flash for Kids! is ideal for children who may have taken lessons previously but became discouraged or bored with traditional methods. It’s a great book for all children who show interest in music, since the study of music can help children improve in other areas of learning. Fun at the piano can happen in a flash!
