Hal Leonard is expanding their popular “For Kids” methods featuring easy instruction with fantastic hit songs with Piano for Kids and Drums for Kids that will debut at Summer NAMM.
Piano for Kids (HL156774/$12.99) is authored by Jennifer Linn, Manager of Educational Piano at Hal Leonard, and is designed as a fun, easy course that teaches children to play piano or keyboard faster than ever before. It uses popular songs such as “Let It Go,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Heart and Soul,” and “We Will Rock You” to keep kids motivated while they learn. The method can be used with a teacher or parent.
Drums for Kids (HL113420/$12.99) by Scott Schroedl provides the same fun and easy instruction that will get kids playing super quick. The simple, easy-to-read page layouts ensure their attention remains focused on one concept at a time. Kids will love pounding out such popular favorites as “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Train,” “Old Time Rock & Roll,” “Peter Gunn,” “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” “When the Levee Breaks,” “Wild Thing,” and more. In fact, their parents might even want to join the band after hearing how easy it is to start playing these great songs! The method can be used in combination with a drum teacher or parent.
Both books also feature fully orchestrated accompaniment tracks online for download or streaming. The tracks include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player exclusively available from Hal Leonard that allows kids to slow down the audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, pan left or right, and more–perfect for practice time motivation!
Piano for Kids and Drums for Kids both retail for $12.99. For more information or to place an order please visit Summer NAMM booth #613, call the Hal Leonard E-Z Order Line at 1-800-554-0626.
