Rhythm Book 1

This is a beginning music workbook that I wrote and use in my own teaching. Any music teacher (piano or otherwise) can use this workbook to teach a student about rhythm.

London Bridge

I arranged this beginning-level piano sheet music of the folk song. It uses a notehead-only notation style to simplify reading for students who already know how the rhythm should sound.

Functional Ear Trainer

(Google Play store)

Functional Ear Trainer

(Apple App store)

I recommend this ear training app because it focuses on how tones sound within scales rather than on individual intervals. I find the scale-centric method to be more efficient.

The Way To Stay In Destiny

(Amazon)

This is a novel for middle school kids. It is a well-written story about a boy who loves piano and baseball but must deal with an uncle who doesn’t understand him.

The Forest Of Wool And Steel

(Amazon)

This is a novel for adults. I recommend this because it is a beautifully written story about a young man in Japan who becomes a piano tuner.

The Bear And The Piano

(Amazon)

This is a children's picture book. I recommend this because both the plot and the pictures gorgeously illustrate the reward of learning music.

Bud, Not Buddy

(Amazon)

This is a novel for middle school kids. I recommend this because it is a compelling story about an orphan searching for his musician father.
