Piano SafariAuthors Katherine Fisher (above, left) and Dr Julie Knerr (above, right) talk about the philosophy and creation of Piano Safari, an exciting new approach to piano teaching.

Each workshop will be a step-by-step guide to the key components including:

- A carefully sequenced, intervallic approach for learning to read music notation

- Patterned pieces taught by rote that provide engaging music for students from the first lesson

- Animal themed Technique Exercises that teach the basic motions of piano technique

- Improvisation ideas for developing creativity

- A holistic approach combining ears, eyes, and imagination that allows children to become musically literate at the piano

All attendees will receive a free Starter Pack, and will be eligible on the day for 15% off all titles in the Piano Safari series!

Piano Safari: Review

from the European Piano Teachers Association Piano Journal

Occasionally, a new Piano Method appears that not only goes beyond the tried and true but also applies intelligent and creative approaches that are simply fun. Piano Safari is a refreshing, well conceived, and pedagogically sound endeavour. The enthusiastic creators of this new series for the young beginner base their work on the simple premise of learning through doing, in order words, through playing. Combining rote teaching with intervallic reading around landmark notes, young students will also learn sound technique principles that will carry them throughout life… This method gets my vote for the young beginner!
