Yesterday I stumbled across a children’s picture book called Mole Music. Lexi (my oldest daughter) and I immediately fell in love with it! So much so, that as soon as I got home from the bookstore, I hit the computer to create a piano lesson printable that I could share with all of you!
Mole Music by David McPhail is a First Piano Lesson “must”! Even though the book is about the violin, I think it is a great read for every new piano student who walks through your door. The message is just so… spot on!
Here’s the synopsis taken from Amazon.com: Mole has always led a simple life, but lately he feels something is missing. When he first hears someone playing a violin, Mole realizes that he longs to make beautiful music, too. Through practice and patience, Mole learns to play. And even though he plays alone, in the privacy of his underground home, his music has an effect on others that is more magical than Mole will ever know.
