  • January 28, 2016 Great music collection for teaching

    I love this series. They are "real" songs, I tell my students. Written by "the dead guys" who were geniuses!! They smile, and enjoy a full song that all sounds good and is playable. I agree with the prior review that said this book is for highly motivated students, but...

    she and I too still use them for moderately motivated - usually the students think they don't like classical music... but they have not tried these books. Most really like the songs. I like them because they teach all styles of classical. The length of the songs are great. Not too long, but more than just a tiny theme. Whether you are a teacher or a self taught student, I hope you enjoy these books as much as my students and I do! (I have students ages 5 to 85 - I uses these books for ages 11 and up).

  • September 05, 2007 Bastien is the Best

    I have taught the Bastien "Music Through the Piano" method for 40 years. It gives the student such a complete education that many have out played me in 2 to 3 years. It teaches harmony and things that I didn't know when I went to College and took music...

    classes in 1960. It says it's for HIGHLY MOTIVATED BEGINNERS but I have used it for all students. It takes a lot of work and outright bribery with rewards and such but when they get thru the first year, they can play anything you put in front of them. I LOVE IT !!
