Piano is the main lesson book in the Bastien Piano Basics course. The carefully graded, logical learning sequence assures steady, continual progress. Original music by the Bastiens includes a stimulating mixture of pop, folk, classical, and contemporary styles. Full-color illustrations throughout entertain and reinforce musical concepts along the way. The gradual multi-key approach takes students through all 12 keys -- 3 in each of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4. Each page is carefully correlated page-by-page with Theory, Performance, and Technic. All in all, a dynamic way to introduce students to the marvelous world of music!

We use the whole set of these. My son is 9 years old and just started this level 3. We’ve worked up through all the books. Bastien is the best kids' piano books I’ve seen
It’s a piano book. What’s there to review? This is the next level up from the piano teacher for my son.
I learned the first time around on this series 20-plus years ago. Since then I have been in a coma and have had to relearn many things. I am glad I found this series again. I also require occupational therapy with my left hand, and playing piano is doing wonders for my Lefty.
I am a music teacher. Our students use these books. Simple and great to use for all levels from primer upwards!
Wonderful book for kids
All 3 of our kids have used these books. Simple and great to use!
