Description

Me and My Piano Part 1 takes the young pianist step-by-step through the early stages of piano technique, first with separate hands, then with a sequence of very easy pieces for hands together. All pieces use a constant five finger hand position in the key of C major. Games and puzzles give elementary theory a new lease of life, and children will love the rhymes and songs introducing characters such the Ostrich, Sammy Squirrel and the Old Man with the Beard!

Fanny Waterman and Marion Harewood's Me And My Piano Series is probably the UK's most widely-used and biggest selling piano method. It is now published in a new edition including a new larger size, improved layout making it easier to read, a clean new look with new typesetting and music-setting and the instantly recognisable cover designs have been updated for extra vibrancy.

Enchantingly illustrated, in full-colour throughout, this essential and irresistible book will encourage the young pianist to expand his or her learning in the most enjoyable way.

Review quote

Me and My Piano Part 1 is attractively laid out, with lovely illustrations, useful fact boxes, occasional theory pages, musical detective questions, and simple duet accompaniments to some of the pieces....Fanny Waterman's success as a teacher stems from her concentration on security of technique combined with the development of imagination and musicianship. These books convey a sense of excitement which will enthral many a young aspiring pianist.
