Illustrations in piano books aren’t all that jazz when it comes to learning

Posted on Tuesday, March 31, 2015

School of Music Professor Gilles Comeau’s “Colorful Illustrations In Piano Method Books: A Pilot Project Investigating Eye Focus” has been selected as the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) e-Journal Article of the Year.

This study, conducted by Professor Comeau, concluded that decorative illustrations in children’s piano books can actually hinder learning because they distract the reader.  

Congratulations!
