Welcome! We are so happy you have found our blog! Piano Safari® is a piano method for beginning piano students written by Katherine Fisher and Julie Knerr. Our website is pianosafari.com, and we also have a Piano Safari FaceBook page and a Teachers Facebook Group called Teaching Piano Safari.
On this blog, we will post “in the trenches” information on the development of
Piano Safari development, thoughts on topics in Piano Pedagogy, student anecdotes that we hope will be helpful to teachers, and anything else we can think of to help all teachers in this quest to be the best piano teachers we can be.

We welcome comments!
