MerrieNan Melodies 15-Second Tour

The homeschooler parent, piano teacher, or classroom music teacher who looks at the MNM curriculum will notice the unique approach of this method. Colored notes? Limited fingerings? Staff pages for writing 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

Composing original songs is a hallmark of the program. Students reinforce the note names by writing their own pieces using the MNM Music Note Code.

Piano Beginner Success

The MNM Piano Beginner Success curriculum contains a Training Manual, a kit with manipulative materials that reinforce concepts in a fun and accessible way, and 21 books.
