About the Author: In 1969, I fulfilled a lifelong dream and created The Mayron Cole Piano Studio in the living room of my home. From the beginning, I was not pleased with the then available piano methods. There was too much focus on reading fingering numbers and too little emphasis on teaching rhythm counting and note reading. Concepts were presented too fast with practically no reinforcement in later lessons. My students were floundering. That’s when I decided to write the piano method that I’d always envisioned. I theorized that playing the piano involves three basic steps: The first step is a thorough understanding of playing and counting rhythm. The second step is exploring and understanding the keyboard. The third, and most difficult of the three steps, is staff note reading. All of my piano teaching material follows these three basic steps of learning. I then began placing some students with the same piano playing abilities in small groups and teaching all of them at the same time. Surprisingly, the group piano classes created an unexpected surge in enthusiasm and lesson preparation by the students. And, I could easily see that the group taught students were becoming stronger musicians than my few remaining privately taught students. Their rhythm counting and sight-reading skills were superior in every way! I wasn’t aware of it at the time, but those first group piano students were also testing all of the music for the thousands of students who would eventually study from my books. Since 1985, I have been publishing my piano method and selling it to piano teachers, schools, and students worldwide.
