Does not cover full octave
on 19 June 2016
This is a good book for children but not suitable for adults as they would find it to slow pacing.
While I like everything about the book, I am disappointed to note that it does not cover full octave.
None of the 5* reviews mentioned this fact.
It teaches left and right hand separately (which is fine for young children). But, it covers only CDEFG for right hand and FGABC for left hand.
All the tunes in the book cover these keys only.
I expected it to cover at least full octave i.e. CDEFGAB.
So your kids will learn only fixed position playing and will not learn how to move hands for other notes in same octave.
I ordered this book from Amazon purely based on good reviews. Had I browsed this book in a physical book shop I might have gone for a different one. Since it is cheap and my kid started using it I kept it. The book is very good but could be better if it had taught full octave.
