Description

An early elementary piano solo collection resource for piano teachers. Includes 20 pieces limited to intervals of only 2nds, 3rds, or repeated notes. Its purpose is to help elementary students who need additional help in reading these early intervals before progressing to more challenging reading. Some pieces have simple rhythms (only quarter notes) so students can focus on interval reading. Others keep the reading simpler (only/primarily 2nds or 3rds) while presenting common eighth-note rhythm patterns to build their rhythmic abilities. Teacher accompaniments are included with each piece.

I teach using Piano Safari, and I will use this book as a supplement to PS, beginning in the later units of PS Level 1 and into the earlier units of PS Level 2.

Here are recordings of six of the pieces with the teacher accompaniment: https://soundcloud.com/karen-simmons-220175740
