Alfred's Kid's Piano Course is the easiest piano method ever for kids ages 5 and up. Using plain language that's easy for kids to understand, three irresistible piano experts guide students along: a clever classical dog, one cool jazz cat, and a friendly alligator who loves the blues. They focus attention by pointing out what's important on each page and make learning music fun! Starting with fun pre-reading songs (tunes on black keys groups and then letter names in noteheads), kids will learn to play notes and melodies and read music from the grand staff. The Complete Edition combines Levels 1 and 2 with the activity pages of the Notespeller and includes an accompanying MP3 CD so you always know how the music should sound. The disc includes beautiful recordings of all the music in the book and can be downloaded to your iPod or other mp3 player. Ideal for home schooling.
