PIANIMALS: Alan Fraser's children's piano method.

   

A developomental approach

In the first years of life we learn to stand, walk, run and jump.
Pianimals gives the beginning pianist's hand the same developmental experience.
The Feldenkrais-style exercises empower children in their very first steps at the piano.


For grownups too

These exercises are a great remedial experience for any pianist...
and the compositions are fun to play for both pupil and teacher.
