  • August 13, 2011 good beginner book

    I found that this course helps the student (Adult or older child) achieve at a faster pace. The songs are more intereesting than not,tho i still have to give them pop, and gospel on my own. I look forward to the more advance course for my students!

  • January 27, 2011 Czerny is more fun than this

    The progression I achieved through this book was satisfactory. So the method aspec of it is sound. The choice of music is, however, abysmal. Even if you like some of the original pieces, the arrangements are just awful.Most of them were cliched pieces which a bit embarrassing to practice...
