        Milton Keynes GB Experienced teacher
        Solid secure starter book. Suitable for young children.
        Rather a lot for a young child to take in the first few pages when they want to get playing.

        London GB Teacher and performer
        Content which is suitable for older children with some musical experience, ie. it moves at a good pace. Covers a new hand position/key every few pieces and consistently builds in new musical and technical skills as you work through the book. Hands together from the beginning.

        I can hardly believe I'm the first to review this book which is the backbone to my early students. It's got so much to offer for improving a balanced hand, and lots of pieces with flair and long or short enough to move the learner towards skills and stamina, and the knowledge of the first keys, 6/8 rhythm and has exercises and information about music appreciation. A pearl of wisdom! The newest edition is better for binding, but the old version is "charming" too.
