Faber's Piano Adventures is one of our 'go to' tutor books for our younger pupils (age 4-7). The tutor books success for this age groups lies with the use of fingering to play pieces initially before moving gradually to more standard notation. It also strengthens and develops co-ordination using the black keys first which is much more accessible to children of this age group. We use the tutor book as part of our Early Keys programme. These tutorials can be useful to parents who are practicing at home with their children. It may also be useful for teachers who are considering materials suitable for a younger student who is struggling with the traditional notation approach. Faber Piano Adventures Tutorials
