Access to Theory Answer Keys and Piano DustBusters App

  Monday, May 18, 2020 by Melanie Burke | Scheduling

I want to let you know that those of you working in Method books have access to ALL of the theory answer keys in your online resources.

I have also included in your online resources PDF's available for print or viewing pleasure copies of the music in the books with the NOTE NAMES WRITTEN IN! (For Primer Level & Level 1. If you are in Level 2, you should know your notes by now, and also have resources to write them in yourself).

Simply look for the file folder of the book you are working in. Here's an example:I hope to encourage all of you who are just beginning to read notes on the staff to write in your note names. Now, you can try yourself, or copy the answers until you feel more confident. 

Playing piano is fun, but can be daunting when learning to read notes. It gets easier with consistent practice - I promise!

I hope that Piano Maestro is helping, as well. You may also download another app by Joytunes called "Dust Busters".  

 It's more of a game, but many students are enjoying it as well to help with note recognition. It connects with me in the same manner as Piano Maestro. Here's the link:

Enjoy being present in your piano practice!

See you soon!
