"Of all the piano instruction books and courses out there, yours is the best by far, because it combines theory, fun, a wonderful variety of songs, and of course, the 5-point learning plan. Thank you for providing such a fantastic piano course for children!" — Beverly Short, Santa Monica, California
"You’ve really found a wonderful way of making music fun for children with your songs. The songs are infused with spirit, so it makes learning truly enjoyable for students." — Monica Le, Fullerton, California
"I love these books because they work! I have been using them for many years with children 4 years old and up. The big notes make note learning easy and the directions for teachers are clear and methodical. My students and their parents are excited as they graduate from one level to the next. These books truly teach little fingers to play! Thank you, Ann Patrick Green!" — Carol Orozco, Fullerton, California
"I use Ann Patrick Green's books with every student. The larger note size, the use of solfege note reading, the inclusion of theory and the way each book is organized makes teaching and learning easy and fun." — Lisa Smith, piano teacher
