A Vibrant, Full-Color Presentation!

Why do children spend so many hours watching TV and playing video games? It’s because they are engaged in the story and its characters. Piano Power Quest makes learning piano more engaging for students by presenting them with an epic story that gives them rewards. Piano Power Quest puts the “play” back into playing piano, and rewards students for diligent practice.


When creating this piano curriculum, we were very focused on ensuring that the story was exciting and that the graphics used were engaging and modern, ensuring that it stands out from other piano method books. There are even maps of each land in the world of Middle C Earth. Students get the sense of traveling around to the many places in each land while meeting the many characters that make the story so fun.

Teachers and parents track student progress as they earn points (called "stars")

Why Use Points?

  1. It's fun to earn points! Video games, for example, use points to measure how successful a player is. In many games, players earn experience points, level up, become stronger and earn rewards. Children love playing video games because they want to do well and see what happens next.
  2. Using points to measure student performance is essential to student development.  Educational systems are based on points.  Earning points to get good grades motivates students to work hard while informing them of which areas need improvement.
  3. Using points informs parents of their child's progress. Parents can easily flip to the recorded scores in the back of each book to be informed of their child's progress.

3. A Well-Rounded Approach!

Piano Power Quest produces well-rounded students

In general education, it's important for students to be well-rounded. It would be hard to find a parent who would approve of their child attending a school that doesn't teach math, for example. In the same way, students who learn from the Piano Power Quest will not only learn the functional skills required to play piano, but they will also develop valuable life skills in the process, such as focus, discipline, confidence, and grit. 


Here is a list of some of the functional skills students will develop from Piano Power Quest:

  • How to read all the elements of music
  • Sight reading confidence (from the Sight Reading Success book)
  • Technique (controlling and coordinating movement from the body, arms, wrists, and fingers)
  • Technical skills (scales, chords, and arpeggios are built into the "Section Scales" in the Technique Training book)
  • Music theory
  • Ear Training
  • Composition ("Composer's Corner" sections are common in the Theory Triumph book)
  • Improvisation ("Improve-isation" sections appear in Levels 1-4)


Here is a list of some of the life skills students will develop from Piano Power Quest:

  • Concentration
  • Discipline
  • Confidence
  • Grit
