Two Louisiana music professors have come up with a new textbook for piano teaching…and it’s online.
The brainchild of Susanna Garcia and Chan Kiat Lim, eNovative Piano is used by about 40 schools across the U.S., including colleges, high schools and middle schools.
Lim and Garcia created all the lessons from scratch and launched the website in 2009.
After purchasing a key, logging into the website will give fledging music students access to about 400 lessons on pieces by many composers including Beethoven, John Henry Hopkins and Garcia and Lim themselves.
Videos are a large part of the textbook and demonstrate the importance of body position and technique. Because it can be viewed on mobile devices, the textbook can be carried around in your pocket.
