Today I am reviewing "Piano for Dummies" here at Stay-At-Home Daughters.
I am about to begin teaching piano to several of my younger siblings, and I wasn't sure where to start.
While at the library a few weeks back, I noticed this book:
and I decided to check it out.
I was surprised at how good it was! It is divided out into 8 sections:
Part I:Warming up to the keyboard
Part II: Getting Sound Down on Paper
Part III: One Hand at a Time
Part IV: Living in Perfect Harmony
Part V: Technique Counts for Everything
Part VI: So Many Toys, So Little Time
Part VII:The Part of Tens .
It covers everything from picking out your piano to finger positions and dynamics, and different mnemonics to help you remember the notes on the staff. There is also lots of sheet music sprinkled throughout the book.
I can see that someone could easily teach themselves a lot about piano. A definite thumbs-up for me!
Note: I do not think my siblings are dummies. :) Just clarifying!
