Teach Yourself Piano is an overview of the entire Piano By Number system and goes into more detail than any of our child-oriented books.
It is more of a textbook than a songbook, although many songs are included as demonstrations of the music theory involved.
As always, no musical training or experience is required to get started.
There are four broad areas that this fun volume addresses:
- Playing melodies by number with the right hand.
- Learning how to find and manage the black keys, “flats and sharps.”
- How to play all the twelve basic major and minor chords with the left hand.
- Playing with both hands, the melody in the right hand, the “chords” in the left.
Once you have attempted the above four skills, you are in a far better position to succeed at reading music.
This is the most basic approach to learning the rudiments of the piano, known worldwide as “singer-songwriter style” or in classical terms, “keyboard harmony.”
Teach Yourself Piano is a Piano By Number book designed for older children and the adult who wants to learn piano on their own.
Many parents use this book and DVD to teach themselves Piano by Number and chords, which they later teach to their children.
Most “teach yourself” piano books such as “Piano for Dummies” or “Play Piano in a Flash” go much too quickly for the average beginner, even adults, but the Piano by Number method is just right for older children and adults, as well as the youngest of children. Everything is explained and illustrated without reference to musical notation, and no knowledge on your part is assumed.
There’s a convenient checklist with this assurance: if you understand the current lesson, you are definitely ready for the next one.
Since piano is a group of steps one must take to begin to play, it is important to have confidence in the path you are taking, and to follow each step until you are ready for the next.
