      Worth looking at as a bang up-to-date young beginner's tutor. A number of engaging pieces to be learnt by rote on black keys. The rhythm cards look very useful and I have just started using them with pupils. The early sight-reading (on the rhythm cards) with just finger numbers and notes to be played initially on black keys as a foundation to reading from the stave is a fantastic pedagogical approach.
      It's NOT playing from the stave with thumbs on middle C!
      The rhythm cards and some pieces introduce quavers right from the beginning which I think is rather too much for a young piano student - on top of learning crotchets, minims, and semibreves.
      You have to be good at teaching piano with a holistic music-teaching outlook to make the most of these materials. It's NOT playing from the stave with thumbs on middle C!
      The materials are rather pricey.
      I think the braced finger 3 start in Piano Adventures is better (as a foundation for god technique) that just using the index finger for the very first pieces in these books.

      Newbury GB Music for Fun! Teacher,
      The mix of rote - and it's fun! Very good to have access to videos and teaching resources
      Still quite pricey and a CD format would be usefuk
