🎈🐸Your young piano students are going to love Fun with Frogs, a 42 page all-in-one, sequential approach to teaching beginning piano to young children either in groups or private lessons. Three adorable green frogs are designed to delight young beginners who can identify numbers 1 through 5 and letters A to G. The whimsical frogs take children on a musical journey starting with learning finger numbers and proceeds to left and right hands, black key groups of two and three, notes going up and down, and quarter notes. Material for students include worksheets, games, listening, pre-reading (off the staff) piano music, hands on activities, and other printables. It is also a resource to supplement method books for children who need more help.
You asked for material simple enough for younger or challenged students, and here it is!
This well-rounded material can be used with:
* PRIVATE LESSONS
* SUMMER CAMPS
* GROUP LESSONS
* SUPPLEMENT TO METHOD BOOKS
* CHALLENGED STUDENTS
* HOME SCHOOL
While teachers and parents recognize the benefits of learning piano at an early age, many piano teachers are reluctant to start younger children because of their special learning requirements. Preschool children need more time to learn basic concepts and need much more repetition and activities than average-age beginners. In this book concepts have a lot of repetition in the form of music, writing activities, and hands on activities.
Teachers find the methods they use with elementary students, such as using mnemonics to remember basic facts, do not work with children who can barely read and may not even know the alphabet. This book takes that into account. With a book you print yourself, you are able to print only the material you need for a particular student! And you can use it every year without buying it again and print copies for all of your direct students.
