Level 1, a beginner piano book, teaches how to count two-eighths, quarter, half, dotted-half, whole, and dotted-quarter/eighth rhythms, with two-eighths rhythm introduced in the first lesson. Level 1 then teaches the keys on the piano; staff notes Middle C up to G and Middle C down to F as well as harmonic seconds, thirds, and fourths. To ensure that  your beginner students are really reading notes and not just reading fingering numbers, we wait until page 103 to teach fingering.  The theory taught in each lesson is the theory needed to play the new piece in that lesson, and the music concepts that have been previously taught are reinforced as many times as possible in subsequent compositions and theory fun sheets.


(Level 1 is exactly the same material as the previously printed Level 1A and Level 1B of The Mayron Cole Piano Method.)
