Understanding the relationships between the piano keyboard, musical notation, signs and symbols is an essential requirement before attempting to 'Start Playing the Piano'. This information is covered in Modules 1 - 4.
Modules 5 onwards are designed to introduce different aspects of musical elements on a step-by-step basis. However, content beyond Module 8 can be covered on a selective basis, notably musical theory.
To supplement the short pieces and technical exercises in the tutor, the editor would strongly recommend the use of `The New Czerny', Book 1, published by International Music Publications Ltd. This outstanding collection of easy studies, specially selected and edited by Alec Rowley and Ernest Haywood, will prove invaluable for every beginner at the piano.
