Welcome to the piano TRACKS project website!

At piano TRACKS we provide a programme of pedagogical tools and resources to help piano teachers formally but flexibly assess student learning and support their progress.

Take a look at what we offer:

3 curriculum pages
piano curriculum which can help students develop their pianistic and musical skills, from beginner to intermediate level (approx. grade 5). This curriculum has been specially designed to introduce and build on concepts in a sequential, bite-sized way, breaking down learning into manageable chunks.

 


Stage A with Pen
Student checklists based on the curriculum levels which provides teachers and students with a very tangible way to track progress and a quick way to identify areas to work on. We also provide free certificates to celebrate achievements!

 


A4 Skips 1
Original worksheets and other resources that are designed to support specific areas of the curriculum. These can be bought through our shop (you will also find signposts to the worksheets through our stages and modules subsections). We are constantly developing and adding new material to our site!

Weekly practice diaries, and medium term goal setters can be found on our trackers webpage. Download these for free and use them with your students to set short and medium term aims.

 

 


signpost
Signposts to external material that can help develop specific skills detailed in the curriculum. From time to time we also review repertoire to see how they fit into our curriculum. We put the results on our blog.

 

 


You can use as much or as little from the piano TRACKS project as you like, and as flexibly as you need to with each student.

New here? First have a look at the development page to find out, in more detail, what the project is about.

What an amazing idea! Really helps to guide progress and lesson planning. Kids love having tangible goals and often come to lessons and say ‘can we tick off the lists this week?’ and they love the certificates! My next job is to spend more time exploring the worksheets. It’s wonderful how much content is added all the time. An invaluable resource for piano teachers.

In Piano Tracks, Barbara has created a superb and creative resource for piano teachers. A clear framework of skill and knowledge acquisition is supported by a range of checklists, worksheets and similar resources. Much can also be adapted for use with other instruments too, and I’m excited to see how the project develops in the future.
