Get Set! Piano - My First Piano Book by Karen Marshall

The popular beginner instruction books for kids with fun exercises, theory and easy songs to play.

My First Piano Book introduces young children to the piano and music-making through fun activities, rhymes, songs and pieces.

The author's tried-and-tested progression covers note learning, theory, aural and composing through a creative and holistic approach. Many pieces have simple teacher duet parts to encourage ensemble playing from the start, and the book is illustrated throughout in the charming Get Set! style. This carefully designed tutor will inspire, entertain and, most importantly, nurture a love of music that can last a lifetime.

Suitable for children aged 5 years and over, this book facilitates a seamless transition from pre-stave reading onto stave reading, leading effortlessly into the highly acclaimed Get Set! Piano Tutor Book 1.

My First Piano Book Reviews

'Two outstanding new publications are set to become my 'go-to' material for teaching five-year-olds, My First Piano Book and My First Piano Pieces, Puzzles and Activities by Karen Marshall. The approach is perfect for the age group and the author's intention to provide a gateway to music through the piano accords exactly with my own ethos. The pieces are tuneful so I know that little pianists will love them, and the emphasis is on developing musicianship holistically, encouraging children to explore the piano creatively and to sing as well as play. My First Piano Book is a work of art, with child-inspiring illustrations, and the accompanying activities book has line-drawings that children can colour in, bringing back memories of that simple childhood joy!' - Sandy Holland, music educator, pianist and examiner
