Play and Play Piano Book for Beginners

Learn How to Teach the Piano Using a Fun and Easy Method TEACHER EDITION

"Play and Play Piano Book for Beginners" Teacher's Edition is for piano teachers and parents to show how to apply the Kodály Piano Teaching Method in easy and engaging exercises. Using game songs and folk songs, the piano teacher can have children and young beginners playing on the piano and keyboard on their very first lesson.

Diane Engle wrote "Play and Play Piano Book for Beginners" based on the Kodály Piano Teaching Method, and over 30 years of teaching, both school music and piano, as well teaching piano teachers the Kodály Method. This well tested child developmental approach for learning to play the piano:

  • Follows the way a child learns naturally in a step-by-step sequence for simple application,

  • Relates to a child’s own physical and intellectual development for deep musical learning, and

  • Progresses from activities through game to song to music symbols with ease and lots of fun!

Piano teachers teach students to become music readers and develop other important skills:

  • Higher Order Thinking Skills
  • Listening Skills
  • Creativity
  • Eye-Hand Coordination
  • Social Skills
  • Self Esteem

The piano music is taken from an extensive collection of children’s songs, folk songs from around the world, including American folk songs, game songs, art music, and the music of the classical masters. Each song has an illustrated color sheet that engages the student and makes the learning exciting, and helps the piano lessons go much easier for the piano teacher.

Play and Play is fun, easy and the best way for piano teachers to teach children the piano!

About the Author

I am Diane Engle. I have a Masters of Music Education from McNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana and a post graduate Kodály certification, a specialized music education method of teaching. Lamar Robertson and Ann Eisen, nationally known teachers of the Kodály music education method and authors of American Methodology, An Inclusive Approach to Music Literacy, were my teachers.

Patricia Bulber at McNeese was my piano teacher.

I have taught classroom music and choir in public schools in Louisiana and Texas for 31 years. I was assistant director of the Tomball ISD Children's Choir.

This past summer of 2015 I had the privilege of teaching Kodály music education at the University of Houston's Kodály Institute and at the Southeast Texas Kodály Certification Program.

I have directed church choirs and played piano and organ. I play the organ at my church and also direct a hand bell choir.

I have taught all grade levels in school and worked with adults in church music. I enjoy teaching all ages in piano, from young children to older adults!
