Piano music sheets for kids

Piano music book “Piano Animals. Tiny Paws. Parts 1 and 2” is for teaching the youngest learners, aged 5-6 years.

The first part of the book focuses on pre-notation era, when music was played using fingering and note names. Before coming to understand the stffa, the student will learn about easier rhythms, musical terminology and primary playing techniques. Every piece also has the teacher’s part, which helps to transform a simple composition into an inspiring musical act. In addition, there are recordings for listening and playing along to the same music. Crosswords and stimulating tasks help you check theoretical knowledge. Also, students are encouraged and taught how to write their own music.

The second part introduces the treble and bass clef. Having covered the material, the student can read sheet music, can analyse and compose it themselves. The piano music book has colourful illustrations and, as a bonus, recordings of all pieces for listening and playing along.

Compilations of piano pieces called “Piano Pieces for the Cheerful Mood“, “Piano Animals. Piano Pieces 2“ and a collection of Christmas music “Piano Animals. Snowy Stories” include piano music for beginners and intermediate as well as advanced piano players. These pieces encourage a study process that is good- humoured and inspiring, and they let you master necessary techniques, develop musical expression and fantasy.

Protagonists of these musical pieces are piano animals, whose character and adventures are revealed either in the title or in a short story linked to it. Moreover, all animals have come to life in colourful illustrations, which trigger your fantasy when interpreting the music and apprehending character.

A CD with recorded pieces is added to sheet music, which helps to gure out more complicated notes and rhythms, and encourages independent study. Some music is arranged for piano and band (on CD also band without piano). This motivates to practice and offers a good ensemble work experience.
