        Develops good technique in beginners of any age. I've been using this series of books for many years and find they're enjoyable for pupils and very useful for teachers.

        Short snappy exercises.
        Pupils play using all of the piano. Great.

        A great little book for young beginners

        Dozen A day Books are great! I've been using them with my students as fingering practices and now that they have a CD accompaniment, the kids love it even more!

        My grandson is learning to play the piano at school and this book was recommended. It was very easy to find it on the MusicRoom website and it was delivered in 2 days - excellent service as usual.

        I use the dozen a day for all ages and abilities, basic drawings and easy to follow. Great for new starters.

        A must for every beginner.

        I have used the dozen a day series for many years and find them an excellent resource to use alongside a tutor book for extra studies.

        A fantastic collection of technical studies to help with a whole host of techniques and to promote flexibility and strength of hands and fingers. Use notes from F below middle C to the G above middle C (mostly) so can be used by a students pretty much from the outset of lessons. Fun, clear, interesting and effective.

        A very good introduction to the series. This little book gives pupils, at a very early stage in their piano playing, the chance to focus on just one particular aspect of technique with a very short exercise. Also very useful for introducing transposition.

        A very useful exercise book for the young learner needing note-reinforcement along the way. Simple - my brighter learners go straight to Dozen a Day Book 1.

        Recommended by our daughter's Piano Teacher as an excellent study book for beginners. My eight year old daughter remains enthused so it must be good!

        Lovely little book full of finger-twister exercises making fingers strong and nicely rounded. The pictures help childern imagine the real life physical exercise connected to each activity.

        My pupils love the Dozen a Day series, and this mini book is a great introduction. It helps them develop good practicing habits and really concentrate on the technical aspects of piano playing. I also find these books useful for introducing transposition.

        I think this is an excellent first exercise book, particularly for the younger pupil. They are little 'bite-size' pieces, which do cover a range of useful techniques - and the children enjoy the titles and little pictures too!

        This book may have been around for years but it stands the test of time. Great way of introducing beginners to technical exercises and it reinforces the notes they are learning in their tutor book. They particularly like the imaginative titles of each exercise.

        Love Dozen A Day books and this is no exception - as it starts with only few notes it means I can give short exercises to earliest beginners so we can focus on technique naturally.
