  • August 07, 2012 Great book

    Started to learn the piano after 25 years absence from playing electric organ as a kid and this book is just great. It progresses at a perfect pace from beginner to what I think is fairly difficult (for an amateur like me). It's very informative about music in general...

    and is so well written that it's fun to just read it. By far the best book I've ever used, this is all one needs to get back into playing.

  • May 15, 2011 The Piano Handbook

    VERY COMPREHENSIVE BOOK! VERY VERY GOOD BOOK! A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY SERIOUS PIANIST! This is a great book for people, especially college level or older beginners to use. It's got all these nice photos of "how to do" all of your etudes, studies, special repertore - with a very...

    nice performance CD that you can listen to all of the repertore! It's an exhaustive very very extensive training book, has better studies then you'd get from just Czerny alone. It's far better then the "I Used To Play The Piano" refresher course. Level is: Late Elementary - Advanced.
