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.".

  • September 16, 2011 Still a great tool for learning piano

    After reviewing this book for use with my piano students, it brought back memories of when I was a youngster learning the piano. Nice selection of pieces. I still remember learning most of the songs. I like the added "preludes" at the back of the book for preparatory studies and...

    the extra notes about the composers and type of pieces.

    At age 78, having advanced far beyond this book, it has been a favorite of mine since I was 8 yrs. old. The arrangements are simple, melodic and beautiful, and there is something for everyone.

  • October 16, 2008 old reliable!

    Don't be embarrassed to order this for yourself just because it's designed for students. It's a lot of fun and has a good mix of pop favorites and classics. Plus, it's not as easy as it looks when you first pick it up!! It'll give...

    the intermediate pianist much, much satisfaction. Buy it!!
