Hi, I am looking to teach a couple of beginner kids to play the piano for a school assignment. What should I find out before I begin teaching? What methods best suit beginners? Any books anyone recommends? Please just give me some basic clues as to what I need to know before I start.
I will be teaching them for 6 months.
I would really appreciate the names of beginner books that you would recommend to start off with please.
I am in grade 7 myself.
Also if you answer please know that this may be featured in the planning folio for the assignment but I will blank out every ones names. Thank you!!!
