Excellent method to obtain music books at great prices. Shipping takes a little longer and in some cases it is not free. I will choose this method again in the future. As we have not yet started our lessons, using the books will begin Thursday but content was clear and precise.
I have used these little books with my beginner pupils to accompany the work in the primer lessons book for many years. Although not absolutely perfect in content, they link well with the piano books - I guess like all teachers do, you need to adapt some pages and add additional material where necessary. Anyway, thank you Bastien for the books!
Nice book. Good for absolute beginners... you can teach your kids yourself and pay for piano lessons when they finish the book! No need for you to be a muso as you can learn together! I've since stopped the piano lessons and and am the teacher...
Purchased this product on the recommendation of my daughter piano teacher. Very good works well with the lessons she is doing. Easy to use in conjunction with her teacher. Happy
AS a piano teacher, this series of books are great for young beginners who know how to read. Parents will need to help them a bit if they are 1st or 2nd grade, simply because they cannot understand the instructions at that age. By the time a child is 5fth or 6th grade, they usually need books that move a little faster. This is a very thorough, but slow, curriculum. The Theory, Lessons and Technic all work together very well.
