There are two follow-up programs to now offer your child.


Ready to Read is the second half of this introductory course.

  • It reinforces the pre-reading skills, allowing the student to be more comfortable with the concepts and music presented thus far. 
  • We play more songs from the "I Can Do It!" book. 
  • At the end of these 4 lessons your student should be able to play all the songs in "I Can Do It!", plus most music offered through our online store designated "Pre-Reading."

First Steps in Reading is for those who easily learned all the skills and music presented in this introductory course. 

  • It begins the reading of music process. 
  • We learn to read and play notes from bass C to treble D.  (2 octaves + 1)
  • We use the keys of C Major and G Major.
  • At the end of these 8 lessons your student will be able to play most any music book offered through our online store designated "Primer Level", plus many marked as "Early Elementary".

Continue the Adventure and the benefits that music brings to our world.
