Children learn best when they can learn through multi-sensory means. By using hearing, seeing and kinesthetic methods, Emily Arrow has created this easy and fun book, Kid's Guide to Playing Piano or Keyboard, for children to use as an introduction to learn how to play the piano. The book is a simple and much needed piano method for beginning musicians ages 6 and older. Her process, which follows the Orff Schulwerk method, is very approachable as she walks young musicians through 7 lessons learning musical notes and chords on a keyboard through a color dot method. She uses colorful stickers to represent the notes, flashcards to learn the rainbow chords and video/audio links for students to access for further help. The book also introduces young minds to important musical vocabulary, fun facts and the history of the piano and provides a practice chart. It even provides on-line audio access so young minds can hear what the piece should sound like.
