By Crystal Payne on February 27, 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this book and also the workbook and discovery book for my niece who is four years old. I am a piano teacher, and normally tell parents to wait until their child is at least in kindergarden before beggining piano lessons, but my sister-in-law begged me to start her daughter earlier. I was already teaching her older sister, so I thought I would give this mehtod a try. The lessons proceed very slowly, and are very basic, perfect for a four year old with a short attention span. The lesson book moves at a slow pace introducing basic concepts such as steady beat, higher/lower, finger numbers, quarter note rhythms and rests through whole notes and rests, measuers, times signatures, groupings of black keys, and white notes one at a time. There are duet parts for the teacher to play with every student lesson. Each lesson begins with a continuation of a story begun on page one. One concept is introduced at a time. There are coloring activities in the lesson book as well as in the workbook to reinforce the concepts. The discovery book has songs for the teacher to play, while the student performs movements which reinforce concepts from the lesson. The book moves a slow pace while keeping the student interested and learning. I am very impressed with this method and have ordered level 2 for my neice who is about to complete level 1.

This is a great 'teach it to your child yourself' book even if you're not a pianist. As a piano teacher, I recommend it to parents/aunts/uncles/grandparents who want to expose a young child to playing the piano or keyboard. The story of Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear makes the lessons even more interesting - keeps the student's attention longer.

The Lesson book is fun, cute, and educational. I'm using this book to teach my 6 year old daughter piano. I play the piano myself so I teach her a little bit of how I was taught when I was her age. I just wished I had this lesson book back in the day. It has activities and coloring that are cute and easy. You can probably use it for starting at 4, maybe even 3 years old.

I bought this book to use with a 5-year-old piano student of mine. I had started her in the Alfred Basic Prep Level A, which is where I would normally start a kindergarten student. She did not know her letters, however, and had a very short attention span. Her mother reported that she used to cry when she had to practice. After a couple of weeks, I introduced this book. She was instantly taken with the characters. I used the lesson book and workbook, and she started to make great progress. As the school year wore on, and she learned her letters, she was ready to learn those notes when they were introduced in the book.
She has nearly finished Music for Little Mozarts Level 2. I don't know whether I'll use this method again with my youngest students -- I'll certainly talk with the parents to make sure the students know the letters of the alphabet! It worked for this particular student, however, sand she is thrilled with her progress.

A Kid's Review on October 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
I like it so much that I like to play it again. My favourite song in this book is 'Haydn's Symphony'.

I like it so much it's my music book ofcourse. I like all the animals best because they learn me music so much. I can't even kiss them because they are in my music book. Mummy might get me the animals for christmas!

When my four year old daughter started showing interest in playing our piano, I immediately set about to find a course of instruction for her (as an intermediate player, I chose to teach her myself). I checked out several books from the library, and browsed several local music shops. In total, I analyzed 6 different courses targeted for young children. I told my daughter she would start taking lessons when she turned 5 (two months away), and her anticipation started building.

Ultimately, I chose the "Music for Little Mozarts" series. The story-based flow of the lessons seemed intriguing, and the material seemed to progress at a good pace.

Well, we are now on the third book (the blue one), and I can say that these books are absolutely fantastic. As it turns out, my daughter hasn't shown much interest in the stories of the books (involving the different mice and other animal characters). She just enjoys working on the simple exercises. We work on the book for at least 10 minutes every day, and she volunteers to practice a little extra on some days. In the beginning, she was able to get through one exercise/page per day, but now it might take a little extra practice for her to learn the new notes. I bought some stickers at Staples, and every time she "passes off" a page, we put a little sticker on it. She really likes that.

Best of all, there has been very little discouragement (or boredom). Each exercise seems to be just the right difficulty.

The support offered with this series is also great. We work through the workbooks as well, and they provide excellent reinforcement for the concepts in the books. We haven't tried the flashcards or other materials offered (parent's guide, "Discovery Book", solo books, recital books, etc.
