Any suggestion of 4 hands book for teaching?
« on: September 01, 2016, 06:50:32 PM »
I wanna find some super easy 4 hands books for teaching a beginner.

Like this: (both easy)


Or this: (student's part is super easy but teacher's part is a bit complicated, prefer this)


The second one is pretty good. See that kid is so happy.
But I want some English book. Any suggestion?

I bought this book ("Fairyland in Treble") for my piano teacher as a present to use with her students. .. really beautiful presentation of a book.

I like this one (and so did Rachmaninoff apparently).
There are 4 progressive volumes of these miniatures that Godowsky said he poured his heart into when creating them.

https://www.amazon.com/Miniatures-Suites-Belwin-Performing-Artist/dp/0757905846/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472802911&sr=8-1&keywords=godowsky+miniatures

You can find the CDs accompanying the volumes from the amazon link on spotify if you want to hear what the miniatures sound like.

Nice suggestion. But is there any easier ones?
I am going to teach some very very beginners who are just 3-7 yrs old.
Thanks everyone.
