    My instructor started me in this Walter Noona book when I was 5 years old. I've been teaching out of This series since 2001. My student ages have ranged from 6 years old to 28 and at any age it has been understood wonderfully. I recommend this book to...

    anyone starting out.

    This method is a blend of the traditional Middle C approach with the progressive multikey approach. The result is a teachable, ultra-comprehensive approach for students age 9 and older. The course is accelerated; don't try to use it with young kids. Also, written lesson plans are essential when...

    first using the course, since the books are not coordinated page by page. Each component of the course stands on its own; the books are not reinforcements of each other. For example, Pianist 2 presents 5-finger pieces in all keys, while Performer 2 presents pieces with shifting hand positions. Projects covers both creative work and technique. The approach blends guidepost/interval reading with intensive multikey work. The pieces are very interesting and motivating. I would prefer fewer finger numbers; I white some of them out.
