    Definitely the best book out there for comprehensive teaching to adult beginners or more intelligent teens. It moves along much faster than other courses and covers all the essentials. Bonus is the spiral bound book. I cannot believe how many music books fall apart! Especially Hal Leonard books, btw. Wish...

    they'd get that annoyance fixed once and for all! :)

  • January 25, 2012 Excellent Adult Beginner Course

    As a teacher I've seen many books written for the adult piano beginner, but this one is quite outstanding, and it incorporates theory and technic along with the piano lessons in the one book. The arrangements of well-known pieces are excellent. The hand exercises are an unusual but...

    desirable addition. The accompanying DVD demonstrates the material in the book - I found the playing here a little 'too correct'. With a teacher, the DVD would not be necessary, though it is designed so it can be 'played along with' in practice.
