An 8 year old boy has just started taking piano lessons with me. He has learn't previously for about 3 months with a student who has now returned to university. It is a very unusual situation.
He can play for example the 'full' version of The Entertainer (i.e. not an easy version) straight through with no problems. However, he doesn't really know he's doing. He doesn't know note names, rhythms etc. - well, not as confidently as he can play. I'm guessing that he's been taught where to put his fingers in order to play the pieces. He's very musical though.
I don't want to have to go back to a beginner book as that wouldn't be very fair on him - any suggestions of where to go? He likes jazz and classical.
