The Missing Step

Piano Is Easy

Printable PDF Download

We're not trying to eliminate reading music. Rather, we believe there is a missing step in children's piano, and that step is to simply let the child enjoy the piano, before the struggles of learning to read music.

The easiest way to do this is to use numbers instead of notes, leaving notes for later when the child has had a chance to get to know the piano keyboard.

Numbered Keyboard

The White Keys

Younger kids like familiar songs on the white keys. They can use whatever finger or hand comes to mind, giving them freedom to experiment. More complex elements like fingering, black keys and both hands can easily be introduced later when the child is ready. Follow the path of least resistance and get them to play as many recognizable songs as possible.

Try some recognizable songs on our online piano below:

Pop Goes The Weasel
| 1 * 1 | 2 * 2 | 3 5 3 | 1 * * | 
| 1 * 1 | 2 * 4 | 3 * * | 1 * * |
Twinkle Twinkle
| 1 1 5 5 | 6 6 5 * | 4 4 3 3 | 2 2 1 * |

 

Beginning Books:

All have songs on the white keys only. Making it easy in the beginning will pay off later, by stimulating interest through easily achieved success.
