“I’ve never found a book I love so much for an introduction to key signatures and scales.”
That’s what teachers and teens have been saying since we released WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Studies For Piano 1 four months ago.
And now we’re thrilled to announce that the second book in the series is available here on Amazon! Book 2 is jam-packed with pop-infused piano studies in the keys of D Major, B Minor, Bb Major, G Minor, A Major, and F# Minor.
Before we released our first book in the series, keeping teens interested in piano lessons was a challenging task.
Teens demand motivating music, but motivating music is not enough. Any experienced teacher will tell you that, without a focused, developmentally-appropriate program, motivating music by itself will not keep teens in lessons. While teens may demand music they love, they also need a program that develops their skills in a structured and predictable style.
Enter, WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Studies For Piano: music they’ll find motivating with a structure you’ll love.
In the post below, we’re sharing a visual preview and sound samples from Book 2. If you are new to the series check out this post for a detailed exploration of Book 1.
What Other Teachers Want You To Know About This Series
Before we get to the Book 2 preview, we want to showcase what other teachers have been saying about the first book in our pop studies for piano series. Because, while we can sing its praises, you probably want to hear more from teachers who have been using our series in their studios.
“This book will no doubt be a game changer for students who want to sound awesome NOW, and will inspire them to practice while mastering concepts and skills needed to advance at the piano. Can’t wait to put this in front of my students!”
“I’ve never found a book I love so much for an introduction to key signatures and scales, much less a book that combines BOTH. My students love these books and how much they are learning in each segment. Lead sheets, rhythms, chord progressions, sight reading, improv! What a valuable resource for piano teachers of teens! I can’t wait for the rest of these series!”
“Technique work is finally cool! I love how each segment is organized: practice examples and then a song that illustrates WHY learning (scales) is important. Scales, chords, improv, it’s all here. It’s presented in such a fun, relevant, and accessible way with great graphic design. I’m requiring all my teens and intermediate students to use this book!”
“THIS is what kids want to play. I’ve been using this book for my early intermediate students, my young adult students, my adult students, and they’re all thriving on it! The songs are INTERESTING and PLAYABLE, and they’re a great way to enforce thumb tucks and scales without being a boring.”
“I will buy every book in this series as it comes out. I immediately tried this with my students and it works… it’s amazing… and I can’t wait for the books that have more sharps and flats come out so kids can get comfortable in those keys too.”
This Is What Teen Technical Work Should Look And Sound Like
