Teachers who have known Trevor and me for a long time, are well aware that we love to have fun with music.
If we can make your piano students laugh while learning, we’ve done our job. If we can also make teachers laugh while teaching, then that’s the icing on the cake.
And we are very certain that our newest piano book will have everyone in hysterics!
Today we are thrilled to add Muttzart and Ratmaninoff in Eine Kleine Feline to Andrea and Trevor Dow’s Very Useful Piano Library.
For those of you familiar Muttzart and Ratmaninoff, today’s level 1B piano book is not a composing resource but rather a laugh-out-loud, comic-based songbook packed with songs and activities that reinforce playing with accidentals.
We promise this will be the funniest piano book your students have ever played from. You really have to see it to believe it.
So, with that said, in today’s post, not only can you get the book, but you can check out a visual preview.
A Comic-Based Late Level 1 Piano Songbook
