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.

 

This 2016 edition now includes a steelpan supplement with a specially written foreword by Liam Teague, Associate Professor of Music at Northern Illinois University.

Steelpan layouts have been supplied by the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards in consultation with Pan Trinbago.

Claire's Workbook - an easy piano and keyboard course for young and old.
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 rate.
The new edition also has blank manuscript paper for exercises and writing your own musical ideas.

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!
