  • October 22, 2011 Bartok Mikrokosmos I

    This is a wonderful beginner's series for the adult student and can also be used for children who are studying the piano seriously. However, I would recommend a prep series and a note speller before assigning this volume to children.

  • September 14, 2011 Bartok Microcosmos

    Everty piece in these volumes is a tiny masterpiece. What an act of love Bartok this was for his young son. Amazing what the child can learn here, even when his hand is quite small.

  • July 07, 2010 Great for the adult beginner

    I love this book: it guided me through my first steps on the piano and that was a very good experience. Contrary to other beginner methods, this one makes you play in all kind of key and modes, not only in C-major. The tunes are surpring and interesting. The...

    only thing that can be frustrating for beginners is the metronome numbers given; I never got to that speed. Now after two years of practice, I use the summer vacation to start all over and play them at the mentioned speed.

  • March 26, 2009 Excellent for piano and lever harp.

    Best beginning method for piano I have found anywhere. The emphasis on playing the same notes with right and left hands is most helpful in training both hands in dexterity from the beginning, and allows the student to focus on the melody before all else. I wish my frustrated piano...

    teacher 54 years ago had had access to this series. I am using Volume 1 as exercise for my Lever Harp students, for easy sight-reading, exercises for two-hand dexterity, and for practicing crossing over and under. Best material I have found for this use.

  • March 19, 2009 Good for the Adult Beginner

    This is a great book for those of us who are learning piano as adults. Too many progressive piano books are riddled with obnoxious tunes. This book is free of all that. However, it has no instructions on reading music. If you already read music, want to learn piano and...

    enjoy Bartok, this book is great!
