Recommended by my sons music teacher and he seems to have progressed well despite not being a natural. A good starter for the budding Elton John.

4.0 out of 5 stars KEYBOARD Book 1, 25 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Progressive Keyboard Method for Young Beginners: Bk. 1: Book 1 / CD Pack (Progressive Young Beginners) (Paperback)
I purchased this for my grandaughter as I was giving her a keyboard for her 4th Birthday. I think it is ideal for young children. It is very simple for a parent who may not have any knowledge of sheetmusic. I am very pleased with it.

This review is from: Progressive Keyboard Method for Young Beginners: Bk. 1: Book 1 / CD Pack (Progressive Young Beginners) (Paperback)
Great selection of tunes and attractive presentation. From a teacher's point of view, it would be much better if not all the notes were labelled, because this encourages a "painting by numbers" approach to reading music (which is not really reading the music at all!) so when students transfer to other books which don't have the letters written in, they are totally lost! However it is easy to get round this - I just colour in most of the black note-heads so the children learn to read the notes as they would in a piano tutor. It's worth the effort because the students learn to read faster and more confidently in the long run, but they get the benefit of the great range of tunes which this tutor provides. Having said that, having the letters written in makes it easy for someone to teach themselves to play if they don't have lessons...it just means they will have to learn to read music properly before they can play the music in other books. Unlike some other keyboard books, this book encourages the use of the keyboards Voice/Style features (Yamaha) or Tone/Rhythm features (Casio keyboards), use of chords (fingered and single-fingered) as well as improvisation/composition etc A really good all-round resource for children aged 5-8 who want to learn the keyboard.
