    I'm a senior citizen who enroled in a senior piano course. Our teacher is working on her doctorates and has the class work on this book for about 20 minutes; we have 3 pianos in the class. Then we each play one of our personal songs from another book...

    . Each student is at different level--beginner, intermediate, advanced. We all need scale work, and it's a common challenge. Terrific.

    I order a copy of this book for each of my students as a resource book. All major and harmonic minor scales (including enharmonics), circle of 5ths and chord dictionary. Also two octave scales, cadences and melodic minors. Great book.
