About this product
- DescriptionThe second book in the Lightning Pia series for young children which aims to grow a love of music making while developing all the skills needed to be a pianist. The approach is structured but the material is designed to be creative and fun, encouraging experimentation, improvisation and playing by ear alongside learning to read music. Inspired by Paul Harris' books on Simultaneous Learning, new concepts are introduced slowly and logically a step at a time so that theory, aural and practical skills are combined. The book includes ideas for teacher's and pupils to play together. Sound files are also available at www.lightningpia.com. The ear training games suggested in the books promote aural development. Zoltan Kodaly said, Everyone who learns an instrument should sing first. Many of the tunes in the Lightning Pia books are well kwn children's songs/nursery rhymes and pupils are encouraged to sing while they play to aid fluency and musicality. Children are encouraged to perform from memory and to transpose. This further encourages performance techniques and artistry.
