A Dozen a Day

In the 1930’s,  Edna-Mae Burnam began writing a series of technique books for beginning pianists.  She called it “A Dozen a Day“.  These collections of short, easy exercises are easy and fun to play. Mastering technique for playing the piano even at the early levels of instruction is important.  It helps the player practice more efficiently and avoid some pitfalls altogether.  Beginning with the earliest level, called “Mini Book”, and ending with Book 4, the  concepts presented  reinforce the technique as the student progresses.  If you had forgotten about this series, or if you would like to know more about it, please contact us at 1800-42-MUSIC, or keyboard@stantons.com. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!

Trivia question: There is a stick figure drawing above each exercise.  Where did these come from? (Stay tuned.)
