I found a couple of sites that are great, but don't offer enough of pre-reading/early elementary free downloadable piano sheet music. Here are two great sites fyi: http://www.gmajormusictheory.org/Freebies/freebies.htmlis www.susanparadis.com. If you can provide any others, I'd appreciate it!.

Thank you Irenev,

I like Gilbert DeBenedetti's free music site very much - there are some cute childrens' song there.

Susan Paradis is new to me and I appreciate hearing about her. Did you see her really cute "Rhythm Pizza"?

If you are interested, I will send you some of my pre-charts which I use at the interview and first lesson and have a plan for using up to 10 weeks of lessons for my packet. Most kids are done before the 10 lessons are up and we have transitioned to music printed music.

Betty

Hi Betty, that would be great. I appreciate anything you have. I emailed you last week asking for some graphics you offered to send in another post. I guess you didn't receive it. I think that Gil DiBennedetti is linked to the first site I provided above which for some reason, ran into the susanparadis site. It has some very cute pieces for every level and they are free!

Irenev,

But, I did send you something by email. I'll have to check and see what happened!

I love the "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" and things of that style - good place to get fun things for your students! Gilbert DeBenedetti had some method books out, I think in the 1980's. I must remember to look them up and also find out what he has been up to in these many years since.

It's very generous of him to share these with us!

I'll get back to you soon by email.

Betty
