Rating Review
Customer Rating As a self taught pianist, I found this book to be an invaluable tool for increasing repertoire and improving sight reading. It's full of familiar pieces that are easy and fun to learn, and yet sound impressive to anyone listening! It's a great book to use alongside a self-tuition course, and I would recommend it to all beginner pianists of any age.

Customer Rating Excellent book featuring lots of well known tunes, great for beginners who require practice in sight reading.

Customer Rating This is a useful addition to a more formal piano teaching book especially as it contains many well known tunes and songs; useful sight reading practice for early grades

Customer Rating I'm very impressed by this compilation. Each piece is well known, a great incentive to encourage that little bit extra practise.

Customer Rating A good collection for the beginner who already knows their basic notes. Covers from preliminary to grade 2, although I would say grade 1 & 2 is more working towards the grade than the standard of ABRSM grades. Contains many well known pieces so that parents, whether musical or not can help their children.

Customer Rating As a complete beginner at playing the piano, I purchased this book to help my development.So far,so good.The book gives easy instructions to playing the basic pieces.Going through the book step by step gradually builds up your skills and confidence.Good buy.

Customer Rating Great to have the range from Preparatory to Grade 2 all in one book and clearly listed in grades in the front. Downside is the binding - book tends to fall off the keyboard stand, but this is improved by using paperclips (the individual grade books stay on fine.) Could be further improved with a practice CD as children don't know many of the tunes. Arrangements and progression are good.

Customer Rating Our piano tutor asked me to buy this book (among others) when my 2 children first began to learn to play the family piano we now have. They took to it well and the book has clear explanations for young children.
