These books are really good for young beginners - they get the children playing interesting pieces using both hands really early on by using colour to help children read the notes. They pick up the note recognition almost by osmosis and little exercises at the top of the pages too. Great at keeping the children's interest - give them a try!

This is an excellent start for the younger pupil. I was sceptical at first about using colour co-ordinated fingers but it works! Even very young children can play recognisable tunes quickly, and the system of counting in twos to find the notes written on lines has stayed with some of my advancing pupils as they work through the grades. Moving from coloured to non-coloured notes is straightforward, and the book is FUN with some written and some improvising activities. If you teach young beginners it is really worth a look!
