A piano student’s very first method book is exciting. It lays the foundation for years of musical learning. But, there could be a book that is even more predictive of a student’s musical success: their Level 1 method book.
Music lessons for beginning students are exciting (even if their beginning piano books are a bore). And, while it is certainly a bad idea to use ineffective beginning piano books, it may be even more detrimental to your students and your studio to use ineffective Level 1 method books.
Why? Because ny the time piano students have reached level 1 method books, they have been in lessons for a year or two and the shine of the musical experience may have worn off. If their level 1 method books are pedagogically weak and uninspiring, they will not stick with piano lessons long enough to make it to level 2 method books.
So, for the sake of your studio, now is a wonderful time to reassess your level 1 method book, and if it doesn’t make your students wildly excited to be playing the piano, it might be time to switch to the WunderKeys Elementary Piano Level 1 program!

This Is What Sets WunderKeys Level 1 Apart From The Rest…
Traditional method books typically use a “talk and play” approach. The piano teacher explains a concept by reading the provided instructions and then the student plays a piano piece that reinforces the skill. Students using traditional method books often interact with their music in only one way; by playing it. Rinse and repeat.
But this one-size-fits-all approach to learning music is leaving kids behind. So we decided to break the mold!
