My First Piano Book

Following the international success of My First Classical Music Book, Genevieve Helsby and Jason Chapman return with My First Piano Book: an original and vibrant introduction for children to one of the world’s greatest musical instruments.

Bursting with life and humour, My First Piano Book flaunts the piano in all its glory to inspire a new audience. Each page is a treat to explore, as its animal characters show what they know (and what they don’t!). It truly is both informative and great fun. The piano is an extraordinary invention and, for many music lovers, the greatest instrument of all. 

In this book, the animals all come together to celebrate what the piano can do, and they will help you to play it too!
Part 1: Listen to different tracks.
Part 2: Learn to play.

Designed to fire the imagination of children aged 5–7 years. Readers are asked to think about the different places in which we might hear music. Then, each of the major composers and musical instrument families are introduced and brought to life in a vivid and enchanting way. Throughout the book, children are referred to the accompanying audio CD so that they can hear examples as they read.
