Supersonics Piano Teaching Method

Original, creative and fun piano lesson books by Daniel McFarlane.

Supersonics Piano method books

As piano teachers, you want to inspire your students to fall in love with music and enjoy playing the piano as much as you do.

Every student is different, which means you need a flexible approach, that appeals to each student in different ways. You need creative activities and resources that encourage them to develop a regular practice routine – while taking pride in their progress.

It can feel like a big ask. Especially if you’ve been teaching for a while and you feel like you’re in a rut, or you’re just starting out and you’re still building your confidence.

You want to have fun while you’re teaching. Well, this is exactly why the Supersonics Piano Method was developed.

The comprehensive books will teach students to read music, develop their technique, rhythm, pitch and theory, to play intuitively, to create music and become beautiful performers – all while having fun.

Suitable for students of all ages and levels, these method books encourage an open-minded, playful and flexible approach to teaching and consolidating lessons. It’s designed to give new and experienced teachers the confidence to use it as the basis for their teaching practice – or to combine to their own creative activities. Students will practice melodic patterns across fun-to-play pieces, learn music theory, modern pop chords, transposing and composing their own melodies and more – encouraging them have fun, while they take pride in their progress.

Supersonics Pro members are also able to access our exclusive Primer and Junior series.

Solutions for every student


As a piano teacher who has been teaching for over 20 years, I know younger students need a steady, well-paced introduction to learning to read music and understand rhythm and technique. That’s why the Supersonics Piano Method is the perfect place for younger beginners to start. The steady pace will help them build their confidence to learn new skills early and avoid becoming overwhelmed, which can lead to a fear of failing and a reluctance to practice. Go exploring…

Older students often advance through the lessons at an accelerated pace, and complete beginner books can quickly become boring. So, I developed the Quick Start series, that teaches new concepts and techniques in a quicker, more engaging way for older students. Go exploring…

We also have the Pop School series. This series is the perfect companion to supplement other piano methods which don’t focus on teaching pop chords and it suitable for beginners of 6+ years (you don’t need to get these books if you use our main method books as the pieces have already been included). Go exploring…

“Supersonics Piano helps me as a teacher to address any kind of learner. My visual learners love the appealing covers and fonts and simple pages. 

My auditory learners love to play with backing tracks for BIG movie-type sound. And my kinesthetic learners love the Theory Pages that correspond with the EXACT piece they are playing. It’s a brilliant method!”
