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!Edition Number: WP200

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.
