Good tutor book but not the best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thompson's Easiest Piano Course (Part 1) (Paperback)
I'm a piano teacher and have used this book with nearly 100 pupils now- it is certainly a lot better than Piano Time and 10 little fingers as it gets started with treble and bass clefs immediately and is therefore nowhere near as confusing as the books mentioned above.
However, following the reviews mentioned below, the presence of so many American tunes isn't great and the actual content of the book isn't at all different to the original 1955 version.
Book 2 of the same series is ok. The quality of the teaching is good but the material itself isn't of the same standard.
I solely use Chester's Easiest Piano Course now.
