What age are these "lessons" intended for? Because it only took me a week to memorize the keys.

I agree that most students can learn the key names right away. However, having them write in a different key each week (plus do a physical exercise such as "Dipping Donuts") encourages familiarity and speed at identifying and finding keys.
I've learned not to take it for granted that a new skill will stay with a student without continual review!

My piano student heard me play the first part (of the Pachelbel Canon) and immediately wanted to play it (and it was realistically achievable for her). Thank you! Regards, Tina
Shanette, US: I just purchased O Holy Nightto use as a duet for Christmas Eve Mass. Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read version as my vocalists are not professional and this music won't be quite so intimidating as other arrangements I have. Your expertise is much appreciated!! Merry Christmas!
