Category Description for Bastien Piano Basics Method:

This series provides a wonderful start in piano for any beginning student. Two levels of entry make it easy to use with younger as well as slightly older children who are beginning piano lessons. If your child is ages 5-7, start them out in Primer A and B. Primer A gives them a simple introduction to the piano, and them teaches them a few songs using just the black keys. Then the white keys right around middle C are introduced, beginning with two on each side (so each hand plays middle C and two other notes) accompanied by songs to practice. The songs are displayed by music notes with numbers corresponding to the correct finger. The book progresses, adding new keys/notes until by the end of the book students are playing all nine notes of the Middle C position and the music is shown on a staff. Primer B picks up where this book leaves off, introducing two other simple positions as well as some beginning sharps and flats and other easy music concepts. After completing these two primers, your child is ready for Level 1. If your child is ages 7-11, they should begin in the regular Primer, which covers the same concepts as Primer A and B but at a slightly quicker pace. After completing this book, your child is ready for Level 1. Levels 1-4 continue to follow the same format, with new positions and other concepts such as scales, keys, and chords being presented amidst plenty of practice. While the early books feature lots of colorful pictures and a bit of music theory to enhance the songs, the ratio shifts as the books get more advanced until Level 4 offers much more music theory and fewer accompanying pictures. Approx. 50 pgs. Accompaniment CDs are also available. - Melissa

I just started using Bastien books over the past few years Now I use Bastien books for my new piano students who are average in math and have a somewhat calm personality (I use Alfred's for students who have an outgoing personality and are good math students) Starting students at around age 7 with the Bastien Primer level is my preference but sometimes I get parents who really want their 5 or 6 year old to start lessons In that case I use Bastien Young Beginner A You can also use the Level 1 Performance book along with books A and B
