        Children like the pictures and the progression from finger numbers to letters is good. I also like the fact that by the end of their first lesson they can play a tune
        Don,t particularly like the CD.

        I use this for 6 years old and it's brilliant. Big printing does help for young children to look at notes. Also it's cleavery able to learn half of the tune to start with and can play hole in two pages.

        I think this book really helps beginners see how musical notation matches the notes.

        Great start for young beginners from 5 years onwards! Melodies are very catching and pupils enjoy singing along. The music notation is printed in bold and it is easy to read - I definitely recommend this tutor.

        This is an ideal book to use with 5 - 7 year old pupils. All my pupils love the pictures and the tuneful songs which they can sing while playing. I highly recommend this tutor!

        This book is very good for the younger beginner since it pays a good deal of attention to correct counting and fingering. Children like playing along with the CD too, but it does go a bit too fast for them when they are only embarking on piano playing.
