LEVEL 1

These activities target the after-school aged students.
They include the color coding of the fingers as well as beginning recognition of notes and rhythm.

Some "afterschoolers" are quite young, so if you think a different approach would be more appropriate at times, check out the Preschool Steps.

It is fairly easy to see the same concept when looking at the images of the Activity Sheets. Feel free to use activities from both "Step By Step" programs -- Pre-schoolers and After-schoolers!

I have several Playlists on youtube.com. On the Playlist labeled "General Info" there are a couple videos that would be really good for all of you teachers to view.
1. Anybody Can Play PIANO, 6+ minutes, gives a good overview of the Anybody Can Play method of teaching as well as showing how the app works.
2. Anybody Can Play PIANO Functions, 5+ minutes, goes through the functions of the app in detail.
To go directly to this General Info Playlist click here.

It is good idea to sing the songs that will be learned on the piano (the first "language" step).
The first 6 songs are also on youtube.com.
