Piano For Kids Vol 1: WHY EVERY PARENT & MUSIC TEACHER SHOULD USE THIS SONGBOOK!
Learning to make music provides an excellent path to development in children. Plus it is joyful and fun. But learning has not always been easy. Traditional methods start with abstract symbols and concepts.
The author began searching for a simpler, more intuitive way to teach music to his then three-year-old son. In his search, he began combining ideas from the worlds of design, early childhood education, film scoring and even storytelling.
Thus, the Musicolor Method® was born. For over a decade, it has become a proven way to quickly and gently introduce real music making skills to preschoolers and beyond.

As you know from Volume 1, accelerated learning of music is now possible for everyone from preschoolers to adults. For over a decade, the Musicolor Method® has opened the doors for so many who felt left out by traditional music education methods.

Plus, life skills learned such as focus, study habits, persistence, problem solving and public performance all lead to a happier, richer life. We know your child or your students will have fun lear.
Piano For Kids Vol 3
“I’ve been teaching concepts from The Musicolor Method for almost three years now. This method lets the child get straight to doing what they like best, playing music that is an actual song. As a teacher I love how simple it is so the kiddos can practice independently. The personal growth and positive self-concept that follows is so precious to watch enfold. As you follow through with the next levels it is a perfect transition to traditional notation. By then, they’re loving the piano so much that they’re ready to tackle note reading.”- Marcie E, Private Piano Teacher, USA
We’ve re-ordered the way kids learn piano and general music by focusing on playing first. It’s fast, it’s fun and easy using color as educational scaffolding. By getting facility at the piano quickly, kids build confidence and are ready to then learn the technical and theoretical aspects. This book is the third in a series bringing kids from absolute beginners to playing complex pieces that would require lots of extra help in deciphering on traditional music notation. It’s not that we don’t teach music notation, it’s more gradual, and by Volume 6, Musicolor Notation™ looks a lot like regular music. We’ve taught thousands of kids successfully with this since 2007.
The Game Of Practice
In truth, learning to practice is learning for life. It is the key skill to success in life with so many studies proving that the skills of perseverance, grit and focus far outweigh natural talents. If you are a music teacher or a parent of a music student, you have undoubtedly had moments when you couldn’t seem to motivate them to go further.
This book has many ideas beginning with the proper mindsets of practice and followed with 53 tips along with my personal stories as a parent and music teacher. My teaching practice specializes in teaching children as young as 3 and 4 years of age and you will will learn many of the ideas I use in my studio every day. You will also get a glimpse of the Musicolor Method™, my unique approach to teaching beginners music, even if they can’t read.
