PIano Town description

Diane Hidy’s ability to take the ordinary and make it unusual and exciting has made her the most respected piano teacher online today. In Piano Town, she uses the same wit and sensitivity to bring joy to the lyrics of even the simplest pieces. The eye for layout that makes her Attention Grabbers Books so successful informs the visual design of Piano Town. These books are unusually vivid, clear and easy-to-use even for first-time users.

Here's what one teacher says about Piano Town:

"Piano Town" is the method book I use with my elementary student curriculum for non-adult students. I have been using "Piano Town" ever since it was first introduced into the market and my students and I just love it. 

  • The songs sound great and are very motivating for students to work hard at. 
  •  Students love looking and the illustrations and trying to figure out what is going on with the piano town characters. They love being able to name their town at the very first lesson."

Starting from the first page, Piano Town is a unique experience for every child. Each child can commemorate their first piano lesson by filling out this charming page.

Delightful illustrations and a subtle, continuing story line draw children in to the world of Piano Town.

Each piece is preceded by questions to help both student  and teacher focus on the new tasks ahead.

Introducing Sharp is an active process in Piano Town. Notice that every sharp requires the student to move to the black key. Once they've played this piece, they remember exactly what to do when they see a sharp!

Notice that the questions are becoming slightly more sophisticated as the students move into Level One Lessons.

This first piece in Level Two introducing 6ths by gently reinforcing the healthiest way to play an open interval.
