        Musicroom Reviews

        Use of this book is providing a structure to my musical development, whilst at the same time maintaining my interest with the quality of songs used. I am looking forward to continuing onto the other sections of the course but hard work and practice are still essential for improvement.

        I found this book easy to follow, although I must say that I did play the piano as a kid many years ago. Was playing tunes within a few minutes. A fairly reasonable selection of tunes.

        This is a classic first book for keyboard players, starts with the very basics and has them playing popular tunes by the end of the book - a great teaching book

        I found the book to be rather too concise and would have preferred the book to contain a little more explanation / theory in the initial stages.

        I bought this music book for my grandson who has just been given a keyboard for Christmas. He said it would be very useful to him He is 8 years old.

        Found the book hard to follow ,altough has some good songs in it still trying to practice but with great difficulty.
        Anonymous - (London, United Kingdom)
        In the past I have found it difficult to find material for beginners who are either primary or secondary school age as I felt the tunes were too old, so I think this revised edition is much more attractive to them. Unfortunately, most of my pupils at the moment are retired and so the original book is much more appealing. We're never satisfied!

        The Book was received in very good condition and quickly. Thank you. My 9 year old daughter loves the book and has been following the tutorials. She is very dedicated and enjoys the book.

        I played the keyboard and completed all grades around 10 years ago. I wanted to relearn and this is a great beginners book. It has songs everyone recognises as well, which help gain your confidence as you know the tune. I recommend for real beginners, or people wanting to get back into playing.

        This is a comprehensive book for beginners, especially for young and old adults!

        As a complete beginner to the keyboard, this book was really helpful. The song choices are variable to suit everyone. I read music already, but for the ones just starting to read this book puts the musical note letter next to the notes on the manuscript. Very good.

        Very pleased with the book, very easy to follow and have just ordered book 2&3.

        I found it very well written and easy to understand for a person like myself with no experience playing a keyboard, or any other musical instrument. I can not compare it with other books as this is the only one I have had so I give it four stars.
