The Key of keyboards is a method intended to accompany the first years of learning cycle I of percussion keyboards (xylophone, vibraphone and marimba). It offers a varied and pleasant repertoire - composed in an original way but also transcribed and arranged from the repertoire of traditional and classical music - associated with preparatory exercises. The set allows the student to quickly acquire a good knowledge of the keyboard and develop understanding of the different tones. The method is presented in 11 chapters constructed by tone.

However, some being indicated more for one than for the other, these specificities are mentioned in the method when it is important
