Piano By Number

Welcome to Walden Pond Press

Piano By Number is a breakthrough in music education that makes starting the piano fun for kids.

Put the numbered stickers on the keys and you’re ready to go. Kid’s piano should be fun, especially in the beginning!

When you’re comfortable with the piano using Piano By Number, you’re ready to read music.

Developed by Emmy Award Winner and leading children’s music educator John Aschenbrenner, this method consistently delivers better results in preparing children for piano lessons.

It’s kid tested, and they love it!

Conventional piano methods start too quickly, leading kids to quit piano. Kids quit because they are not properly prepared for piano lessons and reading music.

This failure can be prevented by playing Piano By Number at home first, before lessons start.


Any child who can count to ten will be able to enjoy and play the songs. Like bicycle training wheels, the numbered, removable stickers are removed when kids feel more confident.

It’s a great way to introduce children to the piano!

Just as you taught the letters of the alphabet, you can prepare children for piano lessons by letting them explore the piano free from the limitations of reading music.

Start slowly and easily, enjoying familiar songs in a simplified language until kids are ready for more complex tasks.

The younger the child, the more they need the simplified language of Piano By Number.

Making it simple in the beginning leads to enthusiasm, and enjoyment is the key to a good start.
