(1 customer review)

Mister Bo Beaver is a fun, early elementary Rote and Reading® piano solo with teacher duet. Mister Bo has figured out a way to make money with his dam-making skills. But that’s not the end of the story!

Studio Use License – This piece comes with a studio license and is a fantastic value as this can be used for as many students as you directly teach!


Mister Bo Beaver is a fun, early elementary Reading and Rote piano solo with teacher duet. This piece is popular especially among Piano Safari teachers as it was in the first edition of Level 1 (known as Cleaver the Beaver in that book). Since then, a more interesting teacher duet part has been added, as well as a second verse!

The story of Mister Bo Beaver

Mister Bo Beaver has thought of a way to make money with this dam-making skills! But the second verse talks about his more sensitive side where he starts to think of animals who might not be able to pay the toll. Interesting conversations might happen from this fun little piece!

Mister Bo Beaver comes with a bonus!

In addition to receiving the music and the cover (always included for ComposeCreate pieces), you’ll also receive 2 mp3s of the piece in a slower and a faster tempo. These mp3s may be sent to your students to help them remember the piece during the week.

The 1st piece in the new Woodland Fun Rote and Reading® Series

Woodland Fun includes Mister Bo Beaver, Lookin' Sharp, and Nuts, Nuts, Nuts - By Wendy Stevens

Stay tuned, because this is just the first piece in a new series called the Woodland Fun Rote and Reading® series. The series will have three pieces about fun creatures found in the woods. Each of these pieces are carefully prepared for that early elementary student just getting to know the keyboard. The pieces and the animals just get cuter and cuter!

Don’t hesitate to buy Mister Bo Beaver though! If you purchase all 3 of the pieces separately, you can always get the special cover that we’ll include with the full series when it comes out.

Want to know more about Rote and Reading® teaching?

When you teach only by rote or only by reading, there is an obvious lack of skills developing in your student. But when you combine both reading and rote, you end up teaching the child in a way that is more natural to their learning process. In addition, the rote pieces (which sound bigger and more mature) will motivate and excite your student while they are having to play more elementary sounding pieces because of their low reading ability.

In the same way that kids learn to speak before they learn to read, it is more natural for a student to learn to play before they learn to read notes on a page. For more thoughts on the value of rote teaching and how long it really takes a child to learn to read music, read: How Long Does It Take to Learn to Read Music?

    What a fun piece! Each fall my students do a duet recital. Most of them play with another student. But my 4 little beginners did Rote and Reading Pieces, and I played with them. Mister Bo Beaver; Nuts, Nuts, Nuts; Lookin’ Sharp and Cluck, Cluck, Moo. Each of them had their piece memorized in just a couple weeks, and they loved playing them so much that their parents were glad when recital was over (not that they stopped playing those beloved pieces even then.)
