Another piano method !!!
If there are many, it proves the interest, at all ages, that arises our instrument. It can replace an entire orchestra, its repertoire is immense (pieces that are counted by millions probably), many masterpieces written or improvised by ancient composers, modern or contemporary, all styles of music ... It is difficult to evoke all the qualities of the piano. We have often heard, sometimes joking, sometimes seriously: the piano is not difficult: the notes are ready! Indeed, there is only to press a key and immediately springs a clear and fair. But here, there are many ways to press the keys (still have to find the right!) And, for beginners, the view of this large keyboard has something to impress. We started from the premise that there are beginners pianists of all ages with very different possibilities. That's why we focused on a very cautious progression so that all the basic elements are well assimilated. Such a young pupil will find a way within his reach, while another, older and probably more mature, will be able to go through the stages more quickly. We have a lot of four- or six-handed songs, almost all composed for this method, thinking that it's always nice and profitable to do ensemble music with the teacher or a more advanced classmate. The pedal (right) of the piano will be used very early: it is the only instrument giving the possibility to keep the resonances of the sounds that have already been played. This pedal opens the doors of a world of extraordinary sounds. There are many new songs, often inspired by different folklores of the world. Piano, wonderful instrument said Chopin. We will help you discover it. Christiane and Gérard Meunier
