Heres a great beginner piano site for children. In fact its a general music site for kids with free learning activities and games. There is an amusing musical sketch pad which will convert your sketches into avant guard sounding music and then there are rhythm and melody games. This is great basic training for kids and being in the form of games makes it all the more acceptable to them.
Take a look at the creating music site here.

Many of you have contacted me asking for some beginner piano chord charts. It seems that a lot of people want to play from music by reading the chord symbols. I will be producing a list of all the chords and publishing it here within a few weeks. Once you have learned the basic chords, you need to put some sort of rhythm to them, learn some inversions and you are well on your way to playing most popular songs.
I just came across this brilliant piano lesson on video, not so much of a beginner piano lesson but still really interesting.
The christmas song in the video is the end result of what is taught in the piano tutorial which can be found here:
Doesn’t that sound just great? And in the tutorial video he shows you exactly how he came up with the arrangement, the chords he is playing and the inversions he uses.
