Purchase Kelly Kirby Materials

The following teaching materials can be obtained through our partner retail locations, or through our online store:  I also have two stores (one in Toronto and one in Lethbridge Alt that should be listed.  Names are at work!!)

Kelly Kirby Lesson Books 1 to 4
The Kelly Kirby Books are now eye appealing and still as much fun as they always were!  The books now come in a re-sealable clear plastic bag which can be kept at the teacher’s studio for weekly distribution of new pages to the student.  Still in ‘looseleaf’ form, the newly updated books provide peel and stick keys and pictures to reduce the gluing that was previously required.  The covers now have a designated place to write the student’s name.

Kelly Kirby Supplementary Workbook
In order to embellish on and reinforce the basic musical concepts introduced in the Kelly Kirby Lesson Books, teachers have for many years used a variety of other method books to accomplish this task.  Within the studio this required teachers to have a vast array of other books on which they could draw to provide additional note reading material and theory support to the program.  Oftentimes, parents would be asked to purchase additional books to compliment the program or teachers would have to resort to photocopying different materials for their students.

We are excited to offer a new Supplementary Workbook that provides a multitude of original compositions, traditional tunes, additonal pictures and information to enhance the composer stories, and simple and fun theory exercises to support all of the teaching concepts introduced in the entire set of 4 lesson books.  Printed in full color, this book will be a welcome addition to your studio and will produce, in the end, students with a much stronger grounding in the fundamentals of the Kelly Kirby music program.

Kelly Kirby Flashcards
All qualified Kelly Kirby Teachers have in their possession a set of the large flashcards that accompany the Kelly Kirby program and were intended for use in the music studio. However, these cards are too large and too expensive to give to students for ‘at home’ review. So we have designed a new set of student flashcards that compliment the four Lesson Books. The cards provide a way of reviewing each new concept as it is learned and are great for parents to use as reinforcement at home or while on vacation. The answers on the reverse side of the cards make it easy for parents with no musical training to review them with their children, and if the cards are given to the students only as the concepts are introduced, the same eager anticipation that the teacher sees as they return to the studio eagerly awaiting the new pages in their Lesson Book will also be seen as they await their ‘new cards’. The cards come in a convenient, resealable, clear plastic bag and attractively match the books and Supplementary Workbook.
