Put the numbered stickers on the keys and you’re ready to go.
Kid’s piano should be fun, especially in the beginning!
When your child has grown comfortable with the geography of the piano using Piano By Number they’re ready to read music.
Developed by Emmy Award Winner and leading children’s music educator John Aschenbrenner, this new method consistently delivers better results in preparing children for piano lessons.
It’s kid tested, and they love it!
WHY THIS METHOD IS DIFFERENT
Conventional piano methods start kids far too quickly, causing early frustration and eventually leading most children to quit their piano lessons. Kids don’t quit piano because they aren’t smart enough, they quit because they are not properly prepared for reading music.
We’ve found this failure can be prevented by starting children playing Piano By Number at home.
Kids then make a slow and smooth transition to reading music using our fun activity book, I Can Read Music. This remarkable educational tool makes reading music fun for children.
By giving kids a visual reference point on the piano keys (the stickers) I Can Read Music prevents confusion and promotes enthusiasm when kids are first starting to read music.
Why not get started playing piano today? Research studies agree that piano lessons are an essential part of an enriched early childhood education, producing a 40% rise in math scores, as well as improvements in handwriting, English, and other subjects.
The piano is the first place many kids start solving abstract problems, and learn how to work through a task happily.
BUILDS CONFIDENCE WITH NUMBERS!
Put the numbered stickers on your piano, and you’re ready to play.
Like bicycle training wheels, the numbered, removable stickers are removed when kids feel more confident with the geography of the piano.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
In the same way that you taught the letters of the alphabet to your child, before they started reading, you can prepare children for piano lessons by letting them explore the piano free from the limitations of reading music.
Although reading music is the goal of any piano method, it is not a good starting platform for kids. Far better to start slowly and easily, enjoying and playing familiar songs in a simplified language until they are ready for more complex tasks like reading music.
Piano By Number is the “missing step” not found in the conventional piano lesson curriculum, an initial step where the child is taught first to enjoy coming to the piano.
The younger the child, the more they need the simplified language of Piano By Number.
Making it simple in the beginning leads to enthusiasm, allowing kids to enjoy the piano, and enjoyment is the key to a good start at the piano for kids! Click here to read more.
