Duets For Me and My Not-So-Musical Mates, Volume 3 can be used with absolutely any student that shows up at your studio door. Whether it is a teen looking to rock out to some powerful piano solos, an adult who has never touched a piano, or an 8 year old newbie who wants to play some cool music right now, this book does it all!
Read on to learn more about the unique music that is about to become your studio’s best friend. And don’t forget to listen to the audio previews below!
The Multi-Tool You Need As Students Return To Lessons
In it’s simplest form, Duets For Me and My Not-So-Musical Mates is a resource composed of teen piano solos that are accompanied by simple, repeating accompaniments that can be played by anybody… even if they have never sat down at a piano bench.
When we created Volume 1 our intention was to develop a resource that piano playing teens could use to have a good musical time with their not-so-musical mates. And it worked wonders.
But then teachers started to use this series for so much more. They began teaching new students the simple accompaniments and turned first piano lessons into rockin’ duet experiences. They began hosting Grandparent’s Days and Bring-A-Buddy Days, using the duets to create fun musical experiences for their students and their special guests. And they began using the music to show new adult piano students that it is never too late to begin making great sounding music.
The seven piano pieces in this book are each preceded by “Buddy Pages”. New students can play these Buddy Pages while you play the piano solos or your teen piano students can use these Buddy Pages to teach their “not-so-musical mates” the simple, repeating accompaniments.
Listen to three of the seven piano solos and then check out the visual preview of the music and the Buddy Pages below:
