Sight Reading & Rhythm Cards
We include them here on the supplements page because these products work well with other programs while also functioning as a key component of our method.
The Sight Reading Card Pack contains cards for Levels 1, 2, and 3.
Additional Card Supplements
Both the Interval Cards and Practice Strategy Cards can be used to supplement any method.
Interval Cards provide extra reinforcement in reading 2nds and 3rds on the staff for preschoolers and students with special needs, while also serving as a useful review for any student.
The Practice Strategy Cards contains 40 different strategies for use at the lesson and at home. These creative approaches to practice will benefit students of all levels.
We designed the Pattern Pieces books to supplement any standard piano method. As the name implies, they contain pattern-based pieces to be taught by rote.
Pattern Pieces can be used in conjunction with Animal Adventures, which contains the animal technical exercises found in Repertoire Book 1, along with the corresponding Improvisation Pieces and Rote Pieces.
Supplemental music books
The compositions by Chee Hwa Tan encourage students to explore and express sound images at the piano while developing specific technical skills necessary for artistic playing.
Through the Windowpane, A Child’s Garden of Verses, and Windy Nights and Other Tales are sets of pieces that correspond to poems by Robert Louis Stevenson. They are suitable for elementary, late elementary and intermediate skill levels, respectively.
Circus Sonatinas is a set of two three-movement Sonatinas, and is suitable for late elementary skill levels.
The Chee Hwa Tan Pack contains all of the above products.
The Diversions books by Juan Cabeza each contain 21 patterned etudes. Each etude focuses on a single technical pattern that students may encounter in the early stages of piano study: scales, arpeggios, chords, repeated notes, intervals, and other common pianistic patterns.
The Diversions Pack contains both Diversions books.
Piano Train Trips is a collection of 18 etudes with a series of supplementary exercises.
Chee Hwa Tan and Juan Cabeza supplements also appear in our guest composers section.
