Claire's Workbook- Music Theory and Exercises - for all instruments.
Ever wanted to read and play music and cannot afford piano
lessons? This book was written by a young lady with several
year's teaching experience - you too can learn to play the
keyboard and piano by yourself. Comes with easy DIY exercises
and modern clear layout but without any useless frills and
color cartoon characters, while attractive, takes up valuable
teaching space. You can use this book for formal music exams,
GCSE or for your own fun - play all those pop tunes on sheet
music you ever wanted to play. This book is a refreshing change
from the usual fare.

Claire's Workbook - an easy piano and keyboard course for young
Claire's Workbook has evolved over 20 year's teaching experience
with students from 4 to 72 years of age, and originally started
as single-sheet handouts which were developed on computer for
class. Over the years these were improved and bound together
to help students organise their work. So this book is based
on real young students in a real environment writted by a young
teacher in her 20's.
FOR THE TEACHER OR SERIOUS STUDENT:
This collection now addresses most of the typical theory requirements
of the major examining boards of music covering from introductory to the next successive stages, Grades 2/3 depending on
the examining board. It introduces theory concepts - the ability
to READ and WRITE music - gradually and the understanding of notation rather
than merely satisfying a particular examining board's requirements exclusively.
It has also been designed so that the more ambitious student
can progress with the minimum of supervision whether in a formal
class, school or privately, or working at home under his or her own
The new edition also has blank manuscript paper for exercises
and writing your own musical ideas.
Why study theory? Go to this page and find out in this excellent article:

More about learning to read music the DIY way!
These teaching pages are liberally sprinkled with exercise
pages to reinforce the concepts introduced, that is, all the
mysterious blobs and squiggly bits used in music are explained
--- with plenty of exercises so you can self-test these yourself
WITHOUT a teacher- not to say they are of no use as Claire learnt
from being a teacher, but her experience teaches one to help
teach oneself ( to coin a phrase!!!).
Also written by Claire is an easy-play carolbook for keyboard
and piano. This is written in two easy keys, C and G major.
All the arrangements are "one plus two" harmony, with consistent
arrangements - if you can play one, you can play them all!
