His concepts are simple and the steps very easily followed and delivered in a particular way adding a layer on top of another.This books seems to be in the very British tradition of "Lecture notes on...." , and succeeds very well.
Some of the introduction to new information is very intuitive.For example, saying that the "E" note is the bottom line of the staff, the gap above is F and one below is D.Others have tried to make it easy by mnemonics as "Every good boy.." or "FACE" or where "G" starts, in all those cases you have too scan to find the line or space and in doing so, a beginner loses whatever music they had.E is the bottom line is easy it hits you as you go up the C.
The voices or instruments are suggested as well because everything in the Grand Piano voice on a half decent keyboard and the ambition of a beginner is not very melodious.
This book is somewhat dated but manageable as regards technical terms relating to keyboard and does start with Casio keyboard as the instrument.However, the very first chapter does intsruct you to understand your keyboard from its manual.
There are hints on working out the music by ear for hear and play.There is an index as well.
Overall, I found this book very helpful.
