Book B of the Fabers’ method for the young beginner moves the student into staff-reading. Music notation is explored through stepwise directional reading, pattern recognition, and changing hand positions, all in the context of engaging songs, games and creative exploration at the piano. Maintaining the child-centered philosophy of the series, the “friends at the piano” from the A Books introduce students to the music of two new composer friends – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven. Classic themes share the stage with contemporary pop and jazz sounds for young ears to absorb and enjoy. The Book B CD presents a vibrant mix of sounds, from boogie to Beethoven. It serves as a listening CD which educates and as an accompaniment CD for play-along.

We love this book and series for our younger students, and they love the songs! Great themes for the songs, and great characters throughout. Tuckers Secret Life is a fun boogie for students to learn. They can't stop playing it they like it so much.
We borrowed all the piano books in our whole library system to see which to buy. This was it, hands down. Great beginning series. My 8 year old is starting in this book B. His attention span is pretty low so we started with something he can handle, and he loves it. This book is 100% perfect for us. At this age, to me, it's more important that he loves it to start and builds his motivation from within to accelerate as he is ready.
It is taught in a very simple way so it is very easy to teach children.
I bought this book for my son piano lesson . Nice book
