Product Details


Fifteen of the easiest pieces have been selected from the twentieth-century repertoire. Six of these do not exceed the compass of a fifth. We have deliberately omitted pieces from works which should, without fail, be included in all piano teaching, Bartók's 'Mikrokosmos' and 'For Children'. With their attractive melodies and simple and organised structure of rhythm and harmony, the pieces in this selection prove that access to contemporary music can be made easy even for the beginner.


B. Bartók: Allegro deciso
B. Bartók: Andante
B. Bartók: Peasant Dance
B. Bartók: Slovak Dance
B. Bartók: Wo warst du Lämmchen mein?

The European Piano Method

European Piano Method

The 'evergreen' among the piano methods for more than 20 years – still well-liked and frequently used in beginner's lessons today. Due to the selection of international pieces as well as the multiple languages the 'European Piano Method' lives up to its name: Originally published in the languages German, English and French, it is now also available in the language combination Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

For piano beginners from the age of 4 – but also for young and adult beginners without previous knowledge

  • Beginning with improvisation, playing by ear – at first without notes:
    to activate the sense of hearing and train the auditory memory
  • Playful first steps through the black keys, with the pentatonic scale as basis for first improvisations
  • Special yellow 'teacher's pages' contain suggestions and tips, providing even more flexibility in the individual work with the pupils.

In 1993, an interview between Fritz Emonts and former editor-in-chief of Schott Music, Dr. Rainer Mohrs, was published in the specialist journal üben & musizieren.
