Teach Yourself Piano

Welcome to Walden Pond Press

Teach Yourself Piano is an overview of the entire Piano By Number system.

It goes into more detail than any of our child-oriented books.

It is more of a textbook than a songbook, although many songs are included as demonstrations of the music theory involved.

No musical training or experience is required to get started.

There are four areas this fun volume addresses:

  • Playing melodies by number with the right hand.
  • Find and manage the black keys, “flats and sharps.”
  • Play the twelve major and minor chords with the left hand.
  • Using both hands, melody in the right, “chords” in the left.

Once you have attempted the above four skills, you are in a far better position to succeed at reading music.

Teach Yourself Piano is a Piano By Number book designed for older children and adults.

Learn the rudiments of the piano, known worldwide as “singer-songwriter style” or in classical terms, “keyboard harmony.” See also Singer-Songwriter Piano Method.

Many parents use this book and DVD to teach themselves Piano by Number and chords, which they later teach to their children.

Girl enjoying the piano!

Most “teach yourself” piano books such as “Piano for Dummies” or “Play Piano in a Flash” go much too quickly for the average beginner.

The Piano by Number method is just right for older children and adults, as well as the youngest of children.

Everything is explained and illustrated without reference to musical notation, and no knowledge on your part is assumed.

The easy-to-follow format is put into lesson form, and the curriculum goes very slowly so that you can control your flow of learning.

There’s a convenient checklist with this assurance: if you understand the current lesson, you are definitely ready for the next one.


TEACH YOURSELF PIANO includes TEACH YOURSELF PIANO 133 page illustrated printed book  plus removable stickers, and FREE shipping in the USA. This book will have you playing chords (three piano keys played with the left hand) and fun, familiar songs with both hands right away.
