Our goal in 2015 is to “wow” you with out-of-this-world piano teaching advice and never-before-seen piano teaching resources. So today we wanted to share with you two resources that are going out this month to our PianoBookClub and PianoGameClub subscribers.
Exploring Dynamics With Dinosaurs
What do PianoBookClub’ers think of this month’s book? Well, here’s what one teacher emailed us to say…
“How to Babysit a Brontosaurus” is the cutest book EVER! I love the dynamics, the clever story and the creativity! I may have ALL of my students sightread this one. Thank you soooooo much!!!
Click on the book cover below to preview January’s book. Note: At the end of the preview you can also check out sample pages from past PianoBookClub books… so you can see what we’re all about 🙂
Note: How To Babysit A Brontosaurus is no longer available but you can check out this month’s book by clicking on the image below.
January’s book, How to Babysit a Brontosaurus, gives you the supplementary repertoire you need to bring dynamic markings to life. Using a story-based approach jam-packed with humor, your dinosaur-loving piano students will be motivated to use the dynamics within each piece to bring the action to life. Each of the eight pieces are accompanied by a story page, providing vivid imagery and inspiring your students to play with plenty of expression and all of the dynamics.
Sarah’s 8th birthday starts off with peace and quiet… just the way she likes it. But when Uncle Dan’s dinosaur (Brian) shows up unexpectedly, Sarah’s weekend takes a dynamically different turn!
Explore piano, mezzo piano, forte, mezzo forte and crescendo and diminuendo in this Early Elementary level book.
