Learn to play the Piano in the most enjoyable and natural way with the progressive, tried-and-tested John W. Schaum Piano Course. This Green Book is aimed at the absolute beginner with no previous musical knowledge.

Many teachers who use a tutor book to enhance their own pedagogical methods tend to try out a number of different titles, but those who try John W. Schaum rarely move on to any other. These books are guaranteed to keep young beginners interested and motivated, while also most importantly of all, enjoying their playing. The book is very simple and easy-to-use, moving logically through the concepts that any beginning pianist needs to know. This will ensure a solid foundation for when pupils move on to the next level of the Piano Course.

The colourful pictures help to keep the sometimes difficult concepts exciting, and the words that accompany the simplistic melodies are specifically aimed at young people, creating tunes that beginners will genuinely enjoy playing. The John W. Schaum Piano Course lays out a clear and straightforward path for beginners to the Piano, with this book aimed at those who have no prior knowledge, helping them to lay the groundwork before they progress to Grade One. 

For an efficient, effective and most of all enjoyable way to teach young beginners to play the Piano, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better quality tutor than John W. Schaum's Piano Course. With such a wealth of Piano tutor books out there, it's difficult to know who to trust. Schaum's course was first completed back in 1945, and it's still a favourite today, and we know you'll be amazed at how swiftly your child or pupil picks up the Piano with this tutor.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This book is superb! My daughter Joanna started having piano lessons at school and was recommended to get this book and when she got it she read all the tips and music carefully and just started playing! So this book should deserve more than 5 stars and if you or your child/ren decide they want to start playing I would strongly recommend this book to you. My daughter loves playing from the book because there are pictures in and they make it all simple for you. I couldn't think of a better book than this to start learning the piano. I bought my daughter more of the John W Schaum books as with all the help in the book she just whizzes through it. Thanks

Customer Rating I am a pianist and piano teacher working in London. I had this book when I was 4 years old and still find it the very best fun book for kids, despite all the many other options. It is simple, but the words that go with each tune are ones that kids respond to very well. I love it!

Customer Rating This book is very effective for teaching children to learn piano, as it covers all the essential musical aspects for a beginner. It gets the learner to start playing with both hands right at the beginning. It moves quite fast though, so perhaps not appropriate for children under the age of 7.

Customer Rating brilliant book for beginners, has all the information you'll need to get ready for the intial piano grade

Customer Rating A great start for all ages
Simple to follow

Customer Rating Good starter book. Teaches the new notes logically and allows the pupil time to remember them.

Customer Rating I grew up with this book and am now using it myself for teaching. Whereas I do not teach all the pieces in the book (about 90%) I find it to be a very straightforward and easy book for young pupils to follow. Full marks!
