4.0 out of 5 stars Good recognizable tunes 6 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Very well paced, un-complicated style of teaching. It works very well, though there is a lack of classical tunes, this author prefers to go with Famous Pop tunes that the reader will know and therefore be able to pick up the rythem and style very easy (book printed in the Eighties, though, some younger readers may not know some songs).
I would highly recommend this book as it will teach you how to read music, but if you want to learn from classical music, its not for you.

Format:Paperback
It is very easy to keep up with and does not push you to hard but keeps you moving at a steady rate. I found it was a great way to learn the piano with a personnal tutor but with this book you can also learn it yourself as it shows you all the steps. It helps teach you to read the music if can not already do that, I would defently advise others to buy it if you want to learn to play the piano well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz styles conveyed readably. A gem! 12 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
I am about to purchase this for the third time (what happened those other copies?!?)

While I am not a fan of the Kenneth Baker series generally as a piano teaching course, I was delighted twenty years ago to discover that this little book succeeds where so many fail - you get an authentic feel of jazz sounds and phrasings neither over simplified nor overly complicated to read. Very tasty selection of tunes too and well graded in order. The chord symbols are an encouragement to try making some jazz with this too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed. 29 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently acquired a keyboard and decided to learn ho to play it. I remember from years ago a book for guitarists of the same brand that I had used to get me started on guitar... With this piano book I was not disappointed..I am now playing tunes on the keyboard in a relatively short time. If like me you want to learn..easily and in a short period of time to keep your interest going..this is the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Piano Player 11 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
I have later in life decided to learn the piano. This range of books is really great. It has enabled me to progress at a much faster rate than I had thought that I could. I allow half an hour a day to practice and now it is beginning to sound like real music. In fact I am now playing more than half and hour because it has become fun.

Format:Paperback
I started with children's teach yourself books because I thought they would be easier. I need not have bothered, however, because this adult primer was much better.

3.0 out of 5 stars No CD? Why?
The book is OK but it should have a CD included with featured tunes and songs. A bit of a disappointment ! Why it has been removed by the seller?

1.0 out of 5 stars don't like
Prefer traditional songs and classical teaching. This book is full of modern songs and not a lot of actually teaching you how to play the piano.

I lost my last one of these and bought this as replacement. It was in good condition and exactly as described.

Great tutor for the improving player who wants to play popular tunes instead of just classical music, although there are also some great classical tunes here
