Tracey Alene Baetzel (piano teacher, USA)

I’ve tried Tales with very young beginners (3, 4 and 5 year olds) – (none have musical parents) and the material is very accessible. The backing tracks are GREAT! We use them for movement before learning the piece (marching in time, clapping and counting in time) and when they’re ready to play the notes they learn to adjust to the tempo and spirit of the piece with their arms and fingers. Students and parents listen to the CDs at home while doing other things, and seem to prefer the variety of music and instrumentation in Tales to plain piano CDs (which the older RCM students use and tend not to listen to for enjoyment).
