What is P Plate Piano?

P Plate Piano is a series of three bright, colourful piano books for beginner pianists who have completed their first tutor. The books are designed to complement the teacher’s existing teaching methods and provide perfect preparation for AMEB Preliminary Piano or Preliminary Piano for Leisure. Optional non-graded assessments are available from the AMEB at the end of each book. The books feature stunning artwork, fun activities and informative text written by nationally respected music educator, Elissa Milne.

The P Plate Piano program includes access to this website which provides a range of teaching resources and activities for students to reinforce their learning. There are videos demonstrating teaching techniques and tips for presenting the program to students. A forum is also available for teachers and parents to share ideas and experiences. A Hall of Fame showcasing student performances and an online student journal will also feature on this website.

Why P Plate Piano?

The Australian Music Examinations Board is well known and highly regarded for the role it plays in providing opportunities for students of music. This new series of P Plate Piano materials aims to support young musicians in their earliest stages of development.

These books are carefully sequenced and pedagogically sound. They allow students to progress steadily from single note melodies to more complex works. Duet playing, creative interaction and imagination are encouraged and the program integrates with technology as is natural for many young students. These books also feature a variety of styles, from classical to contemporary, which will help the young musician to develop stylistic versatility.
