    This is a pretty good course. Timing, note reading, etc., are pretty well dealt with. The CD does have play along pieces...I wish they had more time between each piece...it is difficult to hit the lap top and get back to the keys in time to join into...

    playing...Other than that it is really a nice beginners book and CD.

    This is an excellent book, coming from someone who has never ever touched a keyboard before. It is very good at the explanation of everything. It has a good amount of practice songs - and their not long and drawn out drills either. This book takes step by step - no giant...

    leaps with something missing in between. I just bought the 2nd volume nad the song book that goes with the series so I will be able to go straight through. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn to play - even as a refresher for the basics.
