Fun and Familiarity

Are familiar melodies easier to learn? Not necessarily! While familiar melodies are fun for students to play, learning the music may not be as easy as one would presume.

This five-finger pattern lends itself to expressive and creative playing to personalize and capture the spirit of the melody, even at the Primer level. From PreTime Piano Popular, Pg. 10.
