MUSIC PEOPLE: Learn piano and guitar videos, youtube or DVD instruction - to compliment Faber books??

Recommended Posts

Any good resources your children have enjoyed?


My 10YO son has finished Fabers Level 1 books (all of them) and loved them, would love to share some with him if there are any good ones folks have used.

Does he have an electric guitar or an acoustic?  If it's electric, my kids (and husband) have learned a TON from Rocksmith (it's not cheap but is a one-time purchase, and it comes with tons of songs).  It has a lot of games and lessons to teach the skills and chords.  It uses a real guitar, hooked to the computer with a cable (that comes with the program, I believe), and the computer tells you exactly what you've hit and missed, and it adapts as your kid progresses in ability.  You may need to keep an eye on what songs your 12yo plays if you are particular; there are a couple of them that are not clean enough IMO for kids, but there are many classic, decent songs.


I got these this book and its sequel for my husband to use a couple of years ago, and he has worked through them and then used them to teach the kids some more skills:

We also have Rocksmith though we use it with our Xbox 360.


My youngest son is currently doing piano with skill success - I got the lesson set for $5 on Groupon. He starts a weekly class next month but this has been good so far and FDIL who is a music instructor said it looked fine to her.

I encourage you to look for the Fabers on youtube. They have many short, instructional videos. Many of them coincide with the Adult Piano Adventures, but you could find the topic that your children are ready for.  It's like having a bit of "outside instruction".


The Fabers also have the early technique type lessons on their website. There's also an app that goes along with the books so that you can play along, changing the tempo, etc.


This is my FAVORITE piano channel. So much great info!
