Using your computer's mouse, you can easily get the idea of "piano by numbers." Just click on the white key with the number that corresponds to the numbers of the song above. You can find this song in EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER, a fun piano method for older children and adults from Walden Pond Press!
It's easy to get started with "piano by number" because it yields immediate results.
Please note that only the white keys of the piano are numbered and enabled in the above animation.
The reason for this is simple: every piano method starts out using only the white keys of the piano because it is easier for beginners. Later, using a book such as THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER, you can explore using the black keys of the piano, called "flats and sharps." EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER includes a section to teach you sharps and flats, so you don't need to purchase another book to make use of EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER.
Intended as a follow-up volume for our other "piano by number" method books, EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER presumes that you have:
1. Played melodies by number using a book such as PIANO IS EASY or THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT. (Even if you haven't done this, there is a section included in EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER that will prepare you!)
2. Played songs with the black keys of the piano, using a book such as THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER. (Even if you haven't done this, there is a section included in EASY CLASSICAL PIANO BY NUMBER that will prepare you!)
This book is intended as a destination for those who want to try actual masterpieces of the piano literature before they attempt to learn the complexities of sheet music. It's a piano method that has a proven track record for older children and adults.
