    I was looking for a way to refresh my memory after many years of not playing the piano and the John Thompson books have been ideal for this.

  • July 08, 2008 Challenging book to push beginners

    The John Thompson series is a solid introduction to music, and moves along at a very brisk pace. The series moves very quickly, and I'd recommend the book for those that have had some music or piano experience. The learning comes in two phases, learning the basic concepts and...

    being able to get through the piece at a slow tempo without mistakes. Mastery at tempo is quite challenging. You should be comfortable with moving your hands from fingering to fingering before attempting this book, as most of the pieces have your hands moving with recommended finger numbers in various keys. Some may be off put by the "old-fashioned" nature of the pieces, but you'll be exposed to pieces from Carmen, Bach, ballet, and various folk music pieces that give musicians some background into where music grew from historically. I'd recommend going through the book with the assistance of a piano teacher, but I have been able to follow it without formal training.

    John Thompson covers all aspects of teaching piano. It progresses nicely through each piece. Those who complete this book go on to become accomplished musicians.
