Quick Overview

Keyboard town is a great method for beginners. Using this book will teach students how to read notes fluently in both clefs. This book also has the student develop strong sight reading skills after the second lesson by the use of traffic signals in the music. That is, a red light in the music tells the student they can look down at their fingers to find their notes and a green light tells the student to keep their eyes on the music. Another great feature of this book is that the student is always to sing or say the names of the notes aloud when playing the little songs or exercises in the book. So many students deal too late in the game with the idea of the piano singing; having the student sing out loud really helps with teaching phrasing.
