Me and My Piano Part 1 takes the young pianist step-by-step through the early stages of piano technique, first with separate hands, then with a sequence of very easy pieces for hands together. All pieces use a constant five finger hand position in the key of C major. Games and puzzles give elementary theory a new lease of life, and children will love the rhymes and songs introducing characters such the Ostrich, Sammy Squirrel and the Old Man with the Beard!
