        I play classical piano and bought this for my grandson who is just beginning to learn. I love it and will buy one for myself. I am particularly impressed by the subtle opportunities to learn timing. Invaluable lessons learnt and the easy and very pleasant right hand harmonies are fun and entertaining.
        Books of classical music often have a paragraph of advice on each piece. I would also like to have seen a couple of lines on basic rhythm, just 1 + 2 + etc, tap out the rhythm and get your "ear" in. Maybe more words where appropriate so the family can sing along.

        Great songs. I use this after grade one to fire children's imaginations and to show them they can play 'jazz'.

        This is a great book to start teaching syncopated rhythms. I tend to teach the pieces out of order selecting the more "straightforward" pieces first. Children love the idea they are playing jazz and it makes a good change from the tutor books

        This book excellent. Kids like it because it is a change from classical playing.

        This book is full of wonderful tunes!They are various styles of Jazz, all very catchy tunes. They really increase my pupils' interests in piano, and the songs are written in a simply style, even my youngest pupil (about Grade 1 level) can learn them fairly quickly. Highly recommended.

        A very good book for introducing different styles of music to beginers. Not just jazz but blues, latin and ragtime styles included.

        Many pupils are thrilled by this book - the kind who enjoy all the Piano Time series, generally bright pupils. Some, though, may be deterred if started on it too soon, or if not aware of the bright, humorous tone needed for jazzy stuff, or if could be deterred by it not being strictly in order of difficulty. Teacher input needed.

        Another brilliant book by Pauline Hall. Great fun tunes in a variety of styles, from rag to calypso and smooth jazz. The tunes, very easy at the beginning, become progressively harder as the book progresses, but none more difficult than about grade 2.

        Beautifully clear notation, excellent rythmns and catchy tunes, enjoyed, not only by the pianist but by the listener as well. Easy to moderate standard.
