OUR METHOD BOOKS
What makes them unique?
Upper Hands Piano: A Method for Adults 50+ to Spark the Mind, Heart and Soul are piano instruction books for adults over 50. We have applied the latest scientific research on how the brain thinks and learns, to get the older adult student playing the piano as quickly and easily as possible. Our books teach all of the basic triads, 6th and 7th chords in all twelve keys, enabling the student to play both beautiful classical and fun popular music (including "fake book" lead sheets). We use larger notes and fonts, with free instructional videos, brain games, a gentle pace with lots of review and lots of encouragement. Upper Hands Piano is a whole-brain workout that will stimulate your mind, touch your heart, and feed your soul. Scroll down to see our library of songbooks too!
