My ‘Go To’ Piano Book!
Ever since I discovered an old copy of ABECEDARIAN (1920s edition), it immediately became my ‘go to’ piano resource in all piano lessons with students of all ages. Twenty years later, I am delighted to present to you my own edition of this old but very effective supplement resource.
Why is it so good?
Because in the first lessons every student is very keen to play a tune and tunes 1-5 only have ONE note each and you it show it by rote!
Would they sound good?
With teacher’s part – absolutely!
What else is this book good for?
– A must resource for hand coordination
– Unbelievably useful when exercising playing two hands together.
The ABECEDARIAN approach in piano playing is one of the few evidence-based, proven programmes that integrates basic principles of human learning and development into a fun, and effective approach to early childhood music education.

E-BOOK WITH STUDIO LICENCE WITH 17 PIANO DUETS
The present The ABECEDARIAN Piano Duets Elena Cobb Edition Elementary Level Book 1 is for those who are entrusted with teaching beginners in their first musical steps will perceive that the chief design is not only to teach but also to interest and to amuse the Pupil at the earliest stage of his musical education.
The Exercises are written in the form of Duets. There are only three kinds of notes used, mainly the Crotchet / Quarter Note. The Minim / Half Note and the Dotted Minim / Dotted Half Note are used only in the last bars of the Exercises.
The counting, which Pupil is required to do aloud, is simply indicated by the number of notes each bar (measure) contains. For example, if there are three notes, in a bar, three must be counted, if there are four, then the Pupil is required to count four.
Exercises Nos 1 to 5 are written on one note each, Exercises Nos 8 to 11 are within the compass of three notes, No 11 has a compass of four notes only and the remainder of the Pieces have five notes each. No sharps, flats, or rests are used in the Pupil’s part. By this means it is hoped that the difficulties which beset the learner at the beginning, especially in the matter of time, may be cleared away, and the task of learning may be made interesting as well as useful.
The G Clef (or Violin Clef), is used to designate the upper notes on the piano. It is placed on the second line which it gives the name G. For names of notes the first seven letters of the alphabet are used : – A, B, C, D, E, F, G. As the whole of the first two books is written within the compass of five notes, the young students will, at first, have to learn the names of these notes only which are on the spaces and lines, beginning with the third space, namely.
