    This is a very good piano educational book in that it really helps with the sight reading, key signatures, and learning the keyboard. The piano pieces in it are good sounding for both young and old. The CD that comes with it is very good recording of each piece, and...

    it really helps one to learn the pieces in the book. So, I would highly recommend it to anyone starting out in piano....

  • 2016-04-30 00:48:41.0 "The Joy of First-Year Piano", with performance CD

    This piano book is for very beginners at piano, the CD that comes with it sounds great. But, the pieces in this book are not as well designed and do not sound as beautiful as a much better piano book that I would recommend - Ferdinand Beyer Op.101. The pieces...

    are just to 'childish' in "The Joy of First-Year Piano", especially for an older adult beginner. Beyer is much more enjoyable and even has extra 'studies' at the very end of the book. So, I give "The Joy of First-Year Piano" only 1 star, and Beyer I would give 5 stars because it's a much better book! Try Beyer first. Also, Carl Czerny's Op. 823 & 599 are very good starter books for the bolder student.
