WunderKeys Piano For Preschoolers
Sorting Sounds is the first in the WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers program. This one-on-one, story-based piano program takes very young children with no prior musical experience on a magical journey where they acquire the piano skills, keyboard awareness, and rhythmic understanding needed for a successful future at the piano. But wait… there’s more! WunderKeys gives preschool-aged children a head start in music, MATH, and life. That’s right… math! But you don’t need to be a math expert to teach this program. In fact, the math is so well integrated into each piano lesson that you will not even realize you are teaching valuable introductory math skills… it simply feels like you’re leading your preschool student or child on a wonderful piano adventure.
Predicting Patterns is the second of three books in the WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers program. Patterning is the shared language of music and math. To understand either discipline is contingent on
one’s ability to understand patterning. In music, recognizing, constructing, and predicting patterns are
the fundamental skills necessary for understanding melody and rhythm… the basis of music. If math is
the “science of patterns”, then music is the “art of patterns”.
Recognizing Rhythm is the final book in the WunderKeys program. If patterning is the heart of music,
then rhythm is the heart’s beat. Being able to understand rhythm is a challenging task for young
children, as they must compare and contrast sounds, measure beats, and recognize note duration.
Fortunately, children who work through the WunderKeys program have no problems understanding
rhythm because of their strong musical math foundation.
