It’s been a couple of months since I shared a blog post with you guys! Being seven months pregnant and on summer break myself, I thought we could all use a little space for other things. I’ve spent my summer days soaking up every moment with my growing baby boy and hubby, as well as with my computer… (guilty 🙈). The good news is I was busy growing The Cascade Method Piano Book Collection for YOU!
This summer, we’ll release a total of THREE MORE BOOKS to the overall collection! 😮📚🤩‼️

This book is going to be a HUGE success at helping piano students read music effortlessly and (of course) in a fun way! I thought, what better way to reintroduce blogging than by giving the full scoop on the book collection?!
So, without further ado, I’m giving a little deeper detail into each book right here so you can have all the details in one place!

In this student duets book, it’s exactly like the one above, but published under a different format with traditional sheet music! For those of you who are not familiar with my Pop Song Method, you will most likely prefer this version of the duet book. Keep in mind that the duets range from no sharps and flats, to at least three sharps and flats. This should help you decide who would best benefit from this book in regards to their piano level!
