I am starting to teach the piano after a break of about 16 years ( I last taught whilst in sixth form). I am offering beginner lessons for children up to about Grade 2.
I was going to use books by Pauline Hall as after looking in the music shop I liked the style, The two I was going to use were Tunes for 10 fingers (for 5 to 8 years) and Piano Time (8 years up).
My quiestion is - is this enough material to use to follow these books or do I need additional books to supplement these two. Also more importantly how do these fit into the Grade Examinations as I am sure parents will ask me about this,
Thanks in advance
Sometimes, working backwards from say initial grade can help scaffold your planning and help you choose materials you need to build your pupils up towards that standard.
