Paloma Piano your source for quality printable piano method books, games, worksheets and resources.
You know what it’s like. The never-ending search for piano music, games, and worksheets. Stuff that will keep your students (and their parents) happy, while at the same time actually teaching them something and making the lesson fun for them, and for you.
Here’s a Typical Day
Here comes Alison, up the walk with Sandy, her mom close behind. It’s been a really hectic day already. The new book you have on order for Alison hasn’t come in yet and you didn’t have time to find something on the internet because you had to squeeze in a lesson from a panicked student who has an audition tomorrow. Alison is going to be disappointed (mom too) now what?
After Alison, you have a new student coming, Hunter. He’s only four (yikes) but his mom really wants him to start lessons, and truth be told you don’t want to turn down students. You have a method book but who knows if he’s ready for it. You need to find some music games and off the bench activities for him, right now. At this point you’re thinking, this is all way too stressful!
Does this story sound familiar?
I bet you could tell me a dozen more like it.
But This isn’t the end of it.
Combine this with the fact that you have nine back to back lessons. That’s four-and-a-half hours of trying to motivate students to learn to play the piano. Four-and-a-half hours of “The C is sharped”, “put 5 on D”, “Count Please!” I know you get the picture.
Face it… despite what everyone thinks, being a piano teacher is not an easy job.
It takes a teacher with beaucoup skills and a lot of patience to take a child from beginner to Chopin player. It also takes the right Method Books, Supplemental Music, and teaching resources. These things are essential to us, they are the tools of our trade.
It’s frustrating to deal with the limitations and the expense of pulling together just the right set of teaching tools and having them available when you need them. Music and piano resources that will motivate your students and help them learn to play well make a world of difference and can mean the difference between success and failure for the student.
The Right Stuff will make your job a lot easier and more fun.
You are faced with searching the internet or traveling to a music store. If you want to have everything on hand you have to shell out money and keep inventory ready. Both options are time-consuming and not predictable. Who knows what the music store has in stock? And how long does it take to find the right piece online?
You can always ask parents to get the books and music… on second thought, we all know that usually always work out.
How about having everything you need in one affordable place?
Save your time AND your budget!
Hi, my name is Doreen Hall. I have been a piano teacher and a composer for over 30 years and I have been through all of the triumphs and the challenges that you face. Over my career as a piano teacher, I have developed many of my own tools and resources for many of the situations that I encountered.
I Want to Share with You
From rhythm exercises to pieces that struggling students could learn by rote before a recital; from my own set of method books to parent handouts that explain everything from why you need to buy a piano to the basics of piano studio etiquette. I found these tools to be really helpful and I know other piano teachers will benefit from them too.Check out our quarterly payment option.
Everything You Need For Your Studio Right Here, Right Now!
In 2013, I created Paloma Piano. My vision was to create a website that would be a one-stop-shop with every kind of resource that piano teachers would need – everything in one place!
“10 minutes on Paloma Piano Platinum and my music for the semester is PLANNED. Done.
Print the number of copies and enjoy. My students like the music, it looks great and I always know I can go back and get more (and print in a pinch during a lesson!)
The resources are awesome and I love the listening lists.
Thank you Doreen!”

From Vision to Reality
Paloma Piano is both a comprehensive source for teaching music and resources AND it is affordable.
One of my frustrations as a teacher was constantly having to pull out my credit card for each piece of music that I needed. Have you ever tried buying a piece of music for a student online while mom sits there waiting for your credit card to go through? Do you have to go back and check your email and hope the music you just bought is in your inbox?
With Paloma Piano, once you sign up and pay for your membership, you have access to everything you need – not $5 here and $10 there.
With Paloma Piano, You Get Paid Too!
The other BIG difference between Paloma Piano and every other piano teacher’s resource site that I know of is that as a Platinum Member you can sell any of Paloma Piano’s materials to your students. In fact, I really encourage you to do so. Some of Paloma Piano’s Platinum Members charge students for the method books, others just charge a yearly materials fee to all of their students, but however, you do it – I want you to make money by using Paloma Piano’s music and resources.
Going On Vacation This Year?
My philosophy is simple: “the more successful and profitable I can help make your studio, the better of we both will be”. And if you see the benefit of being a platinum member, it will be a “no-brainer” when it comes time to renew your membership.
With the extra money you can earn using our books, games and resources you can literally take a nice vacation this year. When was the last time you did that?
Do the Math.
Don’t believe it? Paloma’s 2 sided method books cost less than $1.00 to print out. They sell at the music store where I teach for $10.95. Another option I recommend is that Platinum Level Members charge a $50.00 per year materials fee to cover everything a student will need for the year.
If you have a studio of 40 students that’s $2,000 (minus the $97 you paid for your membership). Not to mention the money you saved on gas and shipping to get other materials.
This is big so I’m repeating it!
If you have a studio of 40 students that’s $2,000 (minus the $97 you paid for your membership). Not to mention the money you saved on gas and shipping to get other materials. That’s your vacation money right there. So, Bon Voyage!!
