As a piano teacher, I am completely satisfied with this book. The Bastien method may be older, but it works. The concepts are introduced at the right pace, and reinforced/reviewed. The colorful pictures in this book are fun and engaging. I actually like these pictures better than the Piano Adventures ones, although these books are older. (Note: One song has the word "gee" in it, which we changed with a little white-out.)


The learning methodologies in this book are very effective.


My LO’s piano teacher requested this book to start. Great beginner book for young children


Good method. Nice illustrations to make it fun and songs that the kids know. I learned by this book over 20 years ago.
