The Bitesize Piano Course: Laying The Foundations

£10.00

Welcome to The Bitesize Piano Course!

I’m excited to share this with aspiring Pianists and Piano Teachers alike. I’ve created this book with simple layout and straightforward explanations in-mind – Bitesize Piano style! Upon trialing, I feel that this book is suitable for around anyone aged 10+.

I’ve composed many of the piano works myself, as well as hand-picking existing pieces to ensure that an eclectic range of genres are covered and explored, encouraging learners to develop into rounded musicians. The book introduces Bitesized topics in a logical order to understand the basics of notation, rhythm, time signatures, key signatures, chords, dynamics, articulation, and hand/body posture.

Upon completing this book, you’ll have an understanding of the basic foundations of music reading, theory and performance technique in which to build upon.
