Lang Lang is likely the worlds most famous classical pianist, but his passion for classical music is not one confined to centre stage. Not forgetting where his excitement for classical music first began, he is determined to bring music to the lives of children around the world. Though his talent and charisma, a phenomenon coined “the Lang Lang effect”, he has inspired millions to take up piano lessons. Now, with his new five book series “The Lang Lang Piano Method”, you can bring the master into your very own home!
The Lang Lang Piano method is aimed at children aged 5-10 years. A glistening eyed cartoon Lang Lang brings the books to life, providing a unique and imaginative way for complete beginners to learn the piano. A lot of effort has been made to make this a truly engaging series for the child musician through the use of colourful and engaging illustrations and themes that complement the notation.
The books develop the right and left hands equally, enabling children to play concert pieces early on in the learning process and establishing good dexterity. Musicianship is developed through theory pages and listening to Lang Lang playing piano classics for children.
“I have loved making my new series for complete beginners and presenting a way of learning the piano that 21st century children can relate to. I hope including the cartoon character helps kids to have fun and engage with the lessons.” Lang Lang
The Lang Lang Piano Method embraces the technology available to a young generation. The books are accompanied by online audio tracks, including exclusive performances by Lang Lang of the “concert pieces”, as well as teacher accompaniments for the early pieces and pupil certificates for completing each level. He’s even launched an App dubbed the Best New App for Learning Music.
