Tales of a Musical Journey

Tales of a Musical Journey is the culmination of Gorin’s vast education and teaching experience. The series uniquely blends Russian and world’s teaching methods to prepare beginning piano students for a classical repertoire.  Translated into fifteen languages with more coming, thousands of copies of this publication have been sold in more than sixty countries.

Written in a form of a chapter book, “Tales of a Musical Journey” uses fairy tale setting and characters to introduce and expand musical concepts. In the series, the young minds are set on a journey through fictitious musical land, where they become friends with the inhabitants of the land. Entertaining and logically interconnected stories develop a young student’s understanding and appreciation of music and piano playing. Comprehensive analogies with the Fairy Tale characters and their adventures make studying complicated techniques easy and fun. Ear training exercises and theory activities further train and develop young musical ears.
