Once in a while a music book comes my way which quite simply “blows me away”, and such a book is Little Stories, a new collection of 16 late elementary pieces by Polish composer Agnieszka Lasko, published by Euterpe and distributed by Universal Edition.
With it’s truly lush illustrations and presentation of Lasko’s highly original and attractive compositions, the book is a natural winner. The inclusion in several pieces of opportunities for children to improvise and compose takes the book to another level again, making it a truly essential addition to the childrens’ pedagogic literature.
Do you teach younger beginners or fancy having a go at working with these little ones in the future?
We are providing some new free digital resources, which have been designed just for you, and to celebrate the launch of two brand new books (My First Piano book and My First Piano Pieces, Puzzles and Activities) both in the Get Set! Series.
This is a free Teacher Starter Pack (courtesy of Collins Music) based on the material in the books.
Writing these books has been quite a journey (the most difficult books I’ve written to date). They took 5 years to write, with material tried and tested in the development process.
These resources are for children from 5 years; the idea is to use the piano as an introduction to music.
