I used to teach piano to a little boy who would forget to practice, forget to bring his music books to lessons, and even forget to wear shoes.
But, despite all this, he could remember that the dinosaur with the longest name was the Micropachycephalosaurus OR that the tallest dinosaur was the Argentinosaurus.
You probably have the exact same student in your piano studio right now.
And that student is going to devour the dinosaur piano solos, activities, and games in our new book, My Piano Teacher Is Prehistoric.
Released this morning, My Piano Teacher Is Prehistoric, is composed for students working in early primer piano books who only know the first five notes in middle C position (A, B, C, D, and E) on the grand staff.
But with those few notes, we have brought dinosaurs back to life and into your studio.
In today’s post, you can look inside the book with a 12-page preview.
Let’s Devour Some Dinosaur Music!
Today, Andrea and Trevor Dow’s Very Useful Piano Library has added a brand new book…
My Piano Teacher Is Prehistoric is composed for early primer piano students. Children using this book will gain confidence playing with A, B, C, D, and E in middle C position.
