    :

    I love teaching piano but needed some more ideas to help me really engage my youngest beginners. DoReMi Piano has inspired both my students and me. I didn’t know anything about Kodaly beforehand but the teacher guide explains everything extremely clearly and carefully. The activities are great fun and show a sound understanding of young piano students. I would wholeheartedly recommend it!

    This book has opened up an entire new world of teaching for me. Superb support and back-up from Helen as well – her service has been 100%.

    This is a good, thorough grounding in basic music skills, that will lend itself both to individual, and to group teaching. I particularly liked the Improvisation section (Unit 2.9) as a simple but really effective introduction to the joys of improvisation and composition in a sociable way, and also Unit 3.2 on using the thinking voice to understand pulse and rhythm.
    The way that homework is used is also potentially very effective, and perfect for the young child – getting them to teach new songs to someone at home is inspired! Music as a social activity really comes through.
