Shop

Welcome to the Piano Pantry Shop!

All resources available in this shop are studio licenses which means you can print as many copies for your students (only) as you need for as long as you live.

Please keep in mind each license is per teacher / individual studio. If you are part of a multi-teacher studio or music school, then you will need to purchase multiple copies. Please contact Amy directly to determine appropriate purchasing.

 


 

Happy Birthday By Ear

 

Your ultimate resource for teaching your students to play “Happy Birthday” by-ear!

This 11-page download includes:
  • 3 student pages: Melody (previewed above), Harmony, and Get Creative
  • A create variations tracker: A checklist for students to keep track of different creative combinations they’ve used (such as waltz bass, what keys they’ve transposed to, creating an introduction/ending, etc.)
  • 3 teacher pages: Suggested teaching tips for approaching each area including a “bonus” page with some extra MLT-inspired activities if you would like to take the audiation-based instruction a little further.
  • 2 notated pages:  One with the melody only and one that includes chord root harmony. These are included as a reference for your convenience, but I would strongly encourage teachers to consider not giving students the notation.

Music Labs

 

The Music Lab series is designed to be flexible to fit your music lab setup.

Sold as individual-app and program-based labs, you can design your students’ curriculum and lab time not only around the apps and programs you enjoy the most but according to the age and level of students in your studio.

Most apps/programs out there do not allow you to easily track what each student has completed and achieved. These labs do just that – they allow teachers to easily give lab assignments and track student progress.

Each lab is a letter-size PDF that is designed to be kept in a 3-ring binder. Every download includes information on terms of use as well as specific instructions for both the teacher and student that pertain to that individual lab.
