- Piano Pronto®: Movement 1
I have used this book (and series) as both a primary teaching method and also a supplemental. I love that there are arrangements of well-known pieces. My students love playing some of the "big songs" they've heard before.
My daughter is doing so well learning from this book with her teacher!
Such a great way to learn how to play piano!
I love that C position is really covered before we move to F or G position. This book is great for establishing confidence in C position and note reading before transitioning to movement 2.
I give out new books as prizes for perfect attendance through the year at my annual recital in the fall. Most of them get one of your Christmas books or the Supplementals like Songs I Love to Play. My introduction to your series and have had very much excitement each year and follow up for this newer method! They love playing songs that are familiar to them and sounding so good! Thank you!
I have taught many Let's Play Music graduates over the years. This method by far is the best for these students to transition into. Jennifer uses the primary chords early on in her books which is used in the LPM curriculum.
I've been using Piano Pronto for at least 5 years and I feel this is perhaps my favorite of the method books. Today a student came with 4 pieces learned independently - because he just loves the music in this book. I Agree!
I transferred a student to Movement 1 in the fall after using a different series with him for a while. I love how PP has explanations of concepts and ideas that spark good conversation with him. He can read the paragraph aloud, and it's SO much better than making him just listen to me talk. It keeps him very engaged, and for the first time I began to feel like we actually meshed well together in lessons. I truly enjoy teaching him with Piano Pronto. So so so happy I switched him to this. :)
My fourth grader loves Movement 1! She played in other method books but Piano Pronto just clicks with her. So happy!
As I've helped my students learn through the Pronto series, I've noticed that the music gets better and better. Movement One is chock-full of great pieces and learning opportunities. My students really enjoy playing the music in Movement One!
