This video is connected to a playlist on YouTube highlighting some of my favorite videos on Music Learning Theory
You can either let it auto-play through the videos, by simply hitting “play” and when one finishes the next one will play or, you can navigate through the individual videos by clicking on the little image in the top right corner of the video that has three lines with a play button. Enjoy!

Music Moves for Piano is currently the only piano method based 100% on Music Learning Theory. Written in cooperation with Dr. Edwin E. Gordon, author Marilyn Lowe has a series of 24 method and supplemental books including Christmas books, and books for preschoolers (Keyboard Games A and B).
