LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, June 10, 2013
To reach potential music makers beyond the traditional teacher community, Alfred Music has released Teach Your Child to Play Piano: Books 1 and 2. This innovative method has been created to help parents and childcare providers teach piano to beginners. These books are designed for parents as well as for families who are part of the homeschool movement and wish to include piano in the curriculum. This step-by-step method provides materials that allow students to play pieces on the piano immediately.

"The release of this book creates an opportunity for retailers to reach new markets," said co-author and renowned piano educator, E.L. Lancaster. "Whereas the primary customer base of our method books has been teachers, this allows us to reach parents, as well."

Full of helpful resources, this book allows parents who have no musical training to successfully teach their children the basics of playing piano. Each page is explained in plain language that is easy to understand. The music is accompanied by a CD containing a recording of every piece in the book, demonstrating how the music sounds. Preceding each student page is an Instructional Guide for the parent that suggests steps for introducing the page to the student, follow-up practice suggestions for the student to do without the parent, and suggestions for reviewing the page in subsequent lessons.
