Dorian and Miss Bell: Piano Lessons in the Forest
Produced by Iain Lauchlan, BAFTA award-winning creator of the Tweenies, with puppets by the renowned puppeteer Neil Sterenberg of CBeebies fame, this set of puppet video piano lessons (for children of age 3 onwards) will guide, help and inspire your child in the first stage of their musical journey - as they learn the piano using the Dogs and Birds Piano Method. These videos will encourage your child to practise at home and therefore provide support for all those involved in the student – teacher – parent triangle of successful learning.
In these 91 lessons (amounting to 16.5 hours of video content), Dorian, a young Dog, and his teacher Miss Bell, a Bird, will lead you through the material in Dogs and Birds Book 1, including all the associated musical games and exercises which form an excellent foundation for the musical development of your child. Each video lesson contains a demonstration, by one of 5 young children, of the final result of each lesson.
The Basic Elements of the Dogs and Birds Approach
Each video lesson focuses on just one of the 6 musical elements which are all equally important in the Dogs and Birds approach - Finger Exercises, Improvisation, Composition, Rhythm and Pulse, Singing and Playing Pieces, and Ear Training.
