What is Piano Adventures?

A comprehensive, integrated piano curriculum that has become the teaching method of choice at leading university programmes and music studios around the world. This student-centred approach uses analysis, creativity, and expression to develop a “musical mind and heart.” The delightful, pianistic pieces and creative theory pages, combined with an outstanding technical approach, encourage practice and progress—with adventure!

Why Use Piano Adventures?

Four key attributes set the method apart from others:
1 – Approach to Reading. Piano Adventures has established a new model with its composite approach to note reading. The ability to read music is developed by effectively integrating three essential skills: discrete note recognition, intervallic reading, and multi-key understanding. These are carefully sequenced and reinforced throughout the curriculum, to build successful readers.
2 – Approach to Pianism. Pianistic pieces and songs with creative lyrics are one of the hallmarks of Piano Adventures. All of the music has been specifically composed or arranged to build a strong technical and artistic approach to playing.
3 – Imagination and Artistry. The lyrics, art, and musical imagination embedded in Piano Adventures make it keenly attractive to children. The Technique & Performance books present essential Technique Secrets, exercises, and etudes that lead to expressive Performance Pieces. Short Discovery and Creative questions foster habits of analysis and creative exploration.
4 – Student Appeal. Years of painstaking pilot testing have ensured a method with wide student appeal, through a rich variety of sounds and moods. The appeal of the music and carefully structured pedagogy have been confirmed by thousands of letters and comments from teachers and students worldwide.
