    Victoria, Tx
    Difficulty Level:
  • April 21, 2013 I used this book in first year piano

    For me, this was the best book of all to start playing after becoming able to recognize notes. I had the book spiral-bound and it lays open very well on the piano. The songs are put together so well, it sounds just like the more advanced play hymns. I...

    would recommend this book for every beginner. It gives you confidence for more advanced piano books. The left hand is written in block chord arrangements making it easy to play. The arrangements are true and clearly printed music lines will make you feel on top of reading music early on. A really good starting book from the first year.

    5 STARS!!! Great book, more beautiful sounding than ever and actually "playable", but this is really more like grade level of SMP 1-3, truly more like Late Elementary - Early Intermediate level. Enjoy!

  • April 19, 2010 Great Collection of Hymns

    Although I would rank this as "intermediate" and not level 1, it is a great collection of well loved hymns - the best I've found at an early level.
