For decades, pupils (aged 6+) have been learning the basics of piano playing with plenty of imagination and creativity by using the popular three-volume piano method Piano Kids by Hans-Günter Heumann. In 2014 the method was revised and has since been published in a revised and expanded new edition: New songs and illustrations breathe new life into the standard work and adjust it to the reality of life of today's first-time piano players.The educational concept of Piano Kids, resulting from the combination of textbooks, additional activity books as well as the large number of themed tune books, is now completed by tune books that are companions to the textbooks.These new tune books contain a wide range of very easy pieces for beginners which are in line with the progress of the textbooks and provide the young pianists with age-appropriate playing literature from the very first piano lesson. Well-known folklore melodies, upbeat compositions in the style of pop, rock and jazz music as well as the first little masterpieces by Mozart, Beethoven & Co. motivate and stimulate the pupils and add variety to the music lessons.Volume 1 starts with several pieces for piano duet which will easily motivate beginners without demanding too much. All pieces are limited to the five-note range while nevertheless covering the whole spectrum of styles: from folk melodies via classical pieces by composers such as Gurlitt, Türk or Bartók to modern compositions from the areas of pop, rock and jazz music.Alongside Vol. 2 of the piano method, Volume 2 extends the pitch range and heightens the rhythmic demands. Apart from the wide range of songs from the areas of folk, rock and pop music, the young musicians get to know the first easy piano pieces by Mozart, Beethoven & Co. Many little 'treats' will have a lasting motivating effect on the pianists, like e.g. the Baby Elephant Walk by Henri Mancini or The Entertainer by Scott Joplin. These pieces have been arranged by Hans-Günter Heumann in such a way that they do not demand too much of the children but motivate them when playing these famous melodies.
