Learning to play an instrument through games, experimentation and creativity as well as trial and error.

Learning to play the piano has never been so exciting! This book was created to begin piano study using original music in varied styles that evokes exotic lands, presents entertaining images and uses all types of music—not just only reading music but also improvising, imitating and working together in groups.

Beautifully illustrated and including audio recordings, this book has a clear and easy to follow format that introduces the fundamentals of piano playing (fingering, notes, dynamic indications, hand positions, etc.) and at the same time captures and stimulates the student’s imagination. A card game is included to add a different dynamic to the lessons. 

The Italian word «Scherzo» means “game”.  The author used the title, Scherzando to convey his concept of learning to play an instrument through games, experimentation and creativity as well as trial and error. All of those are part of this fantastic musical journey that you are about to begin.
