John Thompson was famous for his sincere efforts to interest young pupils in pianism. This series is a clear, correct and complete foundation in the study of the piano to enable the student to think and feel musically. All of his books teach, in the simplest language possible, interpretation and expression. One ideal is "to use in miniature the same attacks as those used by the concert artist.".

    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.

  • 2010-10-20 00:00:00.0 Great book for beginners amd advanced players

    I have been playing the piano for 10+ years and I consider myself to be at a high level and I still find myself reviewing over the techniques and the songs from every one of these books and now I'm using these books to teach my friends as well...

    this is my favorite series because it does not "baby" the student but it makes it easy for the student to teach his/herself like I have ily:) lolz

    I have been studing from this book with my piano teacher. From what i have been learning, it is a great book with lots of nice songs that are not too hard for second grade. Since now I am in eighth grade and currently teaching my sister I would recommend...

    the John Thompson series to anybody eho wants to learn piano.
