        I have been using this book for over 20 years and find it explains the basics of playing very well. It is easy to use as a teacher and the pupils enjoy it as well. It takes you through the beginning stages well and is great for pupils aged around 10 years.

        As it is structured in a way that it is not only helpful to the reader it is very helpful. It is a easy to understand very simple so if you are a beginner it is easy to start.

        As a piano teacher I have found this book to be very good for pupils aged 12 and under. It covers everything pupils need to know starting off and as a teaching tool it is great. The pupils get to play nice pieces early on along with appropriate and usefull exercises. I would recommend using the Michael Aaron piano course for adults for older pupils however, as the content of this book can seem a bit young for older teenagers. I would also recomment to supplement it with other pieces of a similar standard to give a wider range of pieces in different keys.

        Have used this book for all my pupils over many years. By far the best first piano lessons book for children and adults alike

        This book is great for an adult beginner. It clearly explains the different stages and enables the player to enjoy a range of pieces. The pupil will have to be learning theory along side this book to understand some of the meanings etc. I'd recommend this book to any teacher.

        I have used this publication for 29 years and found it to be based on sound educational principles which assist pupils to make rapid progress.

        Not bad. why introduce a new note without prior steps? Why use American terminology? As usual, a good book debased by non-systematic structure. Lessons are to be engaging and this book could have helped. It is still a good tutor book, invitation to the keyboard is a good one too (hard work but thorough). You need a teacher with any tutor book, but this one is a quick study-aid. It MUST be used with other aids. Don't become stilted, boring, bun-in-hair piano teachers!!!!!!!

        I find this book very good for students 7+ including adults. Progess made can be very quickly.

        My teacher recommended this series to me. I have found book 1 an excellent introduction to the Piano, with music interesting enough to keep the attention of adult beginners (not nursery rhymes), and a gradual introduction of new concepts & increase in difficulty. Looking forward to book 2.

        Great piano tutor for beginners! You get through the basic theory and learn to play simple little songs. The book includes a few pages of note reading tests, very sweet melodies that gradually get more challenging so you can improve along the way.

        Dreadful too many finger numbers and huge print

        Nice little pieces in this book. As a teacher I often fall back on this one. The old ones can still be the best - this was first published in 1945

        This was recommended to me by my own piano teacher at Music College over 30 years ago! I have used some of the more modern tutors, but find many of them quite shallow and gimmicky, so I always gravitate back to this one. It provides a good, solid technical and theoretical foundation, which is key to success in learning the piano. All of my students have been well ready for Grade One even before they come to the end of the book. An excellent resource.

        This is an excellent tutor - it follows a logical order and explains ideas very well. The only small complaint is that it doesn't appeal to children in terms of appearance as much as other, more colourful books.
