Format: Paperback
The description describes a CD but it doesn't come with it. A CD so you know what the songs are supposed to sound like. I thought I had made sure I got the one with the CD but somehow I guess I didn't. returned my purchase and gave up after i rec'd second copy without CD. watch out for this. but it looked like exactly what i wanted, besides the disk should be included with ea. copy of the book, but isn't.

Great book for the adult learner Nov. 20 2009
By M. Shell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to see if I could teach myself the basics of playing the piano. It works great for me. I am a visual learner. Yes, I like pictures. The book has drawings of correct finger position and placement. There are basic scales, songs, and lots of skill building exercises. I am very pleased with my purchase. I would buy this book again. It works for the adult who has never played the piano. It teaches you to read music!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Feb. 7 2010
By T. Cavil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book with DVD is absolutely fantastic! I never thought I would be able to learn the piano but this set makes it so much easier! The DVD follows everything in the book, page by page, with the benefit of the piano teacher providing a little more detailed information than the book provides. It's been a pleasure going from lesson to lesson always thinking that there's no way I can play what she just played. With a little time, I'm able to complete each lesson successfully and move on to the next one. The lessons are set out perfectly, growing your skills little by little. A+ in my book!! Not one regret with this purchase!!! The cost of this DVD far out weighs the cost of piano lessons. This is a steal!!!!!!!!

Is working GREAT for us!! Feb. 24 2010
By B. Chaplin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this kit to help teach us how to play the piano. We just purchased a Casio Privia PX-330 keyboard and wanted to start lessons as soon as possible. I work part time with the Air National Guard and I am a full time student. I don't really have time for lessons so I wanted something I can do myself. This kit is amazing and really does help. I have never played any instrument before and I can't read music. This book teaches you both. Learning to play the piano is a very daunting task but it is much easier with this book. My wife and oldest son are still going to take lessons because they have the time, but I am very satisfied with learning from this book. It does a GREAT job and I would recommend it to everyone trying to learn the piano!!! Would buy again for sure!

Learn how to play piano, no matter your previous knowledge Nov. 24 2010
By Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A long time ago I used to know how to read music. However, I had forgotten it all. This book takes you along very slowly, and teaches you everything you need from music notations, to musical note values, and, of course, musical notes themselves. It does it one lesson at a time. You simply learn one thing to do for that lesson, and then build on it, one thing at a time. It letters the notes in the beginning, and then slowly, one note at a time, begins to show them without a letter value. In time, you will learn the notes themselves, and will not even be aware of the fact that the letter values are no longer there. This book also plays songs that you know, and thus you want to keep playing more. The DVD that came with this book is very helpful in showing you how to play each piece. The only problem I saw with the DVD was how to skip over the beginning piano piece that plays, and get to the menu. Normally, you would go to a root menu. However, on this DVD, the root menu is that musical piece. Instead, go to the top menu (look for the top menu button on your remote), and it will bypass that three minute long piece. Other than that, it is wonderful. :)

Very Easy to learn Feb. 2 2011
By Joe Seabee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book with the DVD does an excellent job of explaining how to read the music as well as play. The learning pace is high tempo so you're not wasteing weeks on playing the same song. The music has helpful reminders at the begining of the pieces to remind you which fingers go where. The music is written in large print so you do not have to squint to read the music. The only thing I wish they would have done differently is to offer up some longer pieces to help build the muscle memory. The tunes are fairly short so it is easy to memorize the order of the keys to be played before you memorize the musical notes. Otherwise an excellent purchase. I would recommend this over paying large sums of money for piano lessons.
