Above you'll find sample pages from PIANO IS EASY, and below it a picture of how your piano will look after you apply the 12 removable, numbered stickers.
Children need a visual reference point on the piano, which our stickers provide, and we've found that having this reference point generates enthusiasm and confidence, which makes children enjoy the piano experience from the very beginning.
There are also many more songs that your children can try on our website to get the idea of PIANO BY NUMBER:

Instructions and Stickers
Easy to follow instructions for installing the removable stickers on your piano are included with each of our fun children's piano books.
Every order includes removable stickers for your piano. If you need more, we'll be glad to send extra stickers free of charge.
Illustrations and Binding
Each 8.5 by 11 inch book is sturdily bound with a comb binding that will lay flat on your piano music stand.
The color cover and the color back cover are frames for hundreds of classic line drawings that illustrate the theme of each song (many from the famed Dover Library) giving this book a "Currier and Ives" look and feel.
Children love pictures, and our books are designed to be attractive and fun.
THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT is illustrated in a similar style, and is identical in format to PIANO IS EASY except that there are different songs and illustrations.
See also THE BIG BOOK OF SONGS BY NUMBER.
The lyrics to each of the songs in PIANO IS EASY (50 songs) and THE CHRISTMAS CAROL KIT (44 songs) are displayed on the facing page (see above).
This makes it easy to play and sing along to the songs, which children enjoy.

What is "Piano by Number?"
Sheet music uses five horizontal lines and small circles to tell you which piano keys to push. Many find this confusing at first, especially children. Read more about this.
Playing "piano by number" is a temporary system devised to give a quick, enjoyable start to piano lessons, just like training wheels on a bicycle.
You put numbered stickers on your piano keys and then play familiar songs right away.
Piano by number will later be discarded when the child feels comfortable making music at the piano and is ready to start reading music.
See I CAN READ MUSIC to find out how our method starts children reading music.
Children start reading sheet music a little later in this method, using our book I CAN READ MUSIC, after they have gained confidence playing familiar songs by number, using a book such as PIANO IS EASY.
Every book package order includes a copy of I CAN READ MUSIC.
I CAN READ MUSIC is the perfect way for kids to make a smooth transition from the ease of numbers to the difficulties of reading music.
