It’s just before back to school and students start walking through the door again for their piano lessons – and it’s always good to start the term with some new books! I’d like to share my second shopping list for students from Faber Music’s piano teaching library in the hope there may be some new things that others might also want to dip into to fire up enthusiasm for the new term. These books have served me well as I continue to consolidate but also rejuvenate my own teaching curriculum.
Improve Your... Series by Paul Harris
Paul continues to write extremely useful and inspiring material that supports piano students to improve their core musical skills. Some real hits with my own students include the A Piece a Week series and the Improve Your Sight-reading Piano Duets books. There’s also a fabulous little book I keep in my teaching bag for whenever it is needed – the Improve Your Sight-reading Teacher’s Book.
