MerrieNan Melodies 15-Second Tour

The homeschooler parent, piano teacher, or classroom music teacher who flips through the MNM EarlyStart Book, the MNM WriteStart Book, or the MNM Classroom Book Series will notice the unique approach of this method. Colored notes? Limited fingerings? Blank staff pages (for writing your own music)? Advanced theory (easily understood)?

Add Color; Retain Staff

MNM adds color and also retains the staff.   Note identification is done with color instead of fingerings. The staff is included in the very first lessons.

Composing to Read and Play

The MNM Kit contains manipulative materials that reinforce concepts in a fun and accessible way. The MNM Kit can be used as a composing kit for years!
