Customer questions & answers

Question:
What is the difference between Fired Up! and the Piano Pronto method books?
Jennifer Eklund
Asked by Jennifer Eklundon June 27, 2021
Pinned question
Answer:
The Fired Up! method books are intended for older beginners (namely teens and adults). It is a "playing-based" series that is light on theory and features original compositions as opposed to arrangements. The musical selections utilize common elements found in pop music and will appeal to older students.

Question:
What books should my student use after they have completed Fired Up?
Jennifer Eklund
Asked by Jennifer Eklundon June 27, 2021
Pinned question
Answer:
The Fired Up! volumes are intended to prepare students to move directly into repertoire books that suit their tastes once they complete Fired Up: Level Two. If you want to continue with method materials, students can transition into the Piano Pronto: Movement 2 book. Another option is to utilize the Songs I Love to Play volumes which feature favorite selections from the Piano Pronto series minus the text/method materials.

I've just started an adult student in this book. I like it so much better than adult beginner books I've used in the past. The information and pieces move along at just the right pace - not too slow and boring and not too fast and overwhelming. I'm so glad I decided to use it!

Off and running using Fired Up series with a new beginning adult student. Fits like a glove! The short, appealing pieces laser- focus on note-reading and rhythm, while allowing the introduction of technique without feeling too difficult. My student calls each piece “one hit wonders.”

I currently have an adult student who wants to get back into playing piano after a very long pause. These songs have given her confidence to get back into playing and we are able to fill in all the "gaps" of learning as she flies through these pieces. We are now starting the second level with confidence!

The teacher's parts are extremely engaging and give the beginner student a real sense of achievement because they're playing against such a dynamic accompaniment. The teaching materials in the student book are absolutely super and compare very favorably indeed (in my opinion, preferably) to other older beginner materials.

I’ve had one student finish this level and one currently in it. I really like the moving hand positions, different styles, and accompaniments. I think my students most like that the book is not for little kids! ;)
