Dorian and Miss Bell: Piano Lessons in the Forest
This set of short videos has been produced in order to inspire young children to learn to play the piano. They can be used in conjunction with Dogs and Birds Book 1, and represent an approach to teaching the material. Each video has a maximum length of five minutes and teaches just one particular aspect of a lesson. Elements covered in the videos are Finger Exercises, Improvisation, Rhythm and Pulse, Singing and Playing the Pieces, and Ear-Training.
