Do you remember what it was like to be a young piano student? Although it was a long time ago, I remember some lovely moments (like the first time I taught myself to play a piece from beginning to end) and some frustrating moments… times where I sat on the bench and really, truly, struggled.
For students who have trouble with note reading, those “struggle moments” on the bench are frustrating, discouraging and disheartening. And, as piano teachers, those negative feelings are the ones we want to banish from our studios quickly.
Fortunately, December’s Piano Book Of The Month from our PianoBookClub was created to do just that!
ZZZZZZs and G’s – Starring Gary A. Grizzly is like a big “bear hug” of encouragement for your young piano students, breaking through the note reading struggle with a huge dose of humor and light-hearted fun.
Here’s a sampling of the feedback we’ve already received:
“A couple of students were struggling in some aspects of note reading. No matter what I did to help them failed…UNTIL THESE BOOKS! Oh man…the tables have turned. They beg for more now. Literally Beg. They’ve even forgone a few Christmas pieces to have more of these.”
“I used this book at last lesson with a 20 year old young man who needed a note reading refresher, because he’s been out for 2 months with an illness. It was so fun and painless, he laughed all the way through it.”
Read on to learn how this resource can bring these same benefits to your studio and to view a flip-through preview!
Reinforce G Position Note Reading With Humorous Motivation
When a sleepy, piano-playing bear is awoken from his winter slumber to practice for his spring recital, comical chaos ensues. Join Gary A. Grizzly as he takes your young piano students on a laugh-out-loud journey, propping his eyelids open just long enough to explore treble and bass clef note reading in G position.
Concepts are best learned and retained when presented in a memorable way, and “ZZZZZZs and Gs” is that unforgettable experience that will keep your students wide awake with musical wonder. Using engaging illustrations, a step-by-step scaffolding approach, and hilarious dialogue, this book is guaranteed to prevent your piano students’ note-reading skills from taking a snooze.
