Piano Safari is an innovative method series based on extensive pedagogical research and practice. Katherine Fisher and Dr. Julie Knerr Hague combined decades of teaching experience and study into an engaging and effective method for both children and older students. Piano Safari contains multiple levels of repertoire and theory books, along with sight reading cards and other supplements. We also provide piano teachers with a robust library of guides and resources.
