    Great songs-these books have both engaging songs and pictures. I do tend to skip a half dozen of the songs in the piano and performance books total, as they are redundant or a bit more "boring" and not necessary. I use the Primer, Level 1 and 2 in my...

    teaching, but then the songs are too "contrived" so I move to Faber and Faber with more authentic music and composers. Perfect for the beginning student up to about 4th grade!

    the piano books have been excellent for my pupils and all the information it gives them. They found it good for helping them with their theory, and any other work they do in school.
