    I have been searching for a book like this for years for my adult students! This makes teaching chords SO easy, and is easy for all students to understand. I've been teaching for 30 years...wish I had found this book many years ago!

    I love this book and have found it to be the most valuable one I have in my collection of Piano books. It is truly "user friendly." I recommend it highly to all beginning and intermediate piano students.

    Excellent system. I found it very helpful in geting me to use my left hand more than just sliding between chords.
