    Great Book!!!!

    I've only been playing for 3 MONTHS and I've already gotten through this book and not only can I play the songs but I play correctly and can pick up on songs from other sources quickly because this book teaches you what you really need to know and does it well. I never thought playing piano could be so EASY!

    Good Lesson Book

    This is the perfect book for me. I have taken piano for about 8 months now and I am almost through learning this book. It starts out teaching simple versions of songs most people know. My 5 & 3 year old were singing along to some of the songs the first time I played them! I am 28 and this book makes you feel like you are learning fast. I think you could teach yourself from this book if you have any concept of reading music but it would be better to have a teacher or someone who knows piano to help out. I have been teaching my 9 year old niece from it also, she is doing really well with it too but it is a little slower learning for her.

    A good book to get started

    I have never played the piano. We got one for my daughters to learn to play and I decided to teach myself using this book. To my surprise it worked. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. There is a nice mix of pieces as you move through the book.
