Series John W. Schaum Piano Course

The John W. Schaum Piano Course is a time-honoured tutor book for young beginners, to start them off with the basics, and eventually leading them to mastery. The Red Book is for beginners at around Grade 1 standard.

 
The John W. Schaum Piano Course is an authoritative and comprehensive tutor series for beginners of all ages. It's incredibly well-presented with colour pictures, useful information and guidance material. The aim of the book is to teach in the most natural and enjoyable way, through popular melodies. The method enables the student to progress in a logical fashion through Pre A to F. This Red Book is intended for pupils who have progressed from the Pre-A Green Book, presenting a smooth transition that introduces new concepts while reinforcing old ones.
 
Of all the innumerable tutor series out there, the John W. Schaum books receive some of the widest acclaim from teachers and students of all ages. Presenting all of the essential information clearly and simply, it also uses easy-to-use diagrams and pictures to help visualise often complex information. These books are the perfect blend of a challenge without being frustratingly difficult, if you already have some musical experience, or you're a teenage or adult beginner, this book will be ideal, but for younger beginners or those with absolutely no musical experience, the Pre-A Green book is probably more appropriate.
 
Introducing sight-reading initially, the Red Book moves through all of the fundamentals such as the C Major position, rhythm, melodies, scales, different chords, different intervals and so on. All the way through there are practical examples that help to put the theoretical ideas into a musical context, while also helping students to gain some immediate satisfaction from their learning, which is always essential.
 
For an effective and efficient Piano tutor course for beginners of all ages, the John W. Schaum Piano Course Red Book holds fantastic reviews from our customers and us.
