Book Description

July 1 2005 Willis
A series for the early beginner combining rote and note approach. The melodies are written with careful thought and are kept as simple as possible, yet they are refreshingly delightful. All the music lies within the grasp of the child's small hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love it! Cute pictures, and it progresses very gradually Sept. 1 2005
By Unity Dienes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of my sons just loves playing these songs as a supplement to his Suzuki instruction. They are catchy and progress very gradually--much more gradually than the Suzuki repetoire. Then, his twin brother, whom I've tried for years to interest in music, thought the songs from this book were so cool that he has started playing them and now wants music lessons, too! I'm so thrilled. I think he has always found the Suzuki progression to be too intimidating and fast. This one takes it slower and has much cuter pictures.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT for the earliest beginners Oct. 11 2007
By Pen Name - Published on Amazon.com
Despite what the title says, "A Book For The Earliest Beginner", I feel that it's not for the kids younger than 6 or 7. Requiring to read the music notes on the lines right from the beginning is too much for the kids who barely know alphabets. This book could be fine for older kids or for supplementing other courses. Try Alfred's books which I found much easier and gradual on very young children. If they are under 5, you could try Alfred's Prep Course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Jan. 28 2006
By P. Schuman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 6 yo daughter loves this book. We bought three beginner books from here and this is her favorite and she "plays' all the time. I like that it is easier to use than some of the others. It is very easy to teach from, but she can figure alot of it out herself. It is written towards a childs prespective.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not teach kids to read notes... Oct. 8 2009
By L. Forest - Published on Amazon.com
I began teaching beginner piano students in January of this year. Wanting to give unfamiliar methods a try, I chose this book for one of my 6 year old beginners. She seemed to really enjoy the songs...and it wasn't until about 2/3 of the way through it that I realized she was not learning to read the notes. I finally noticed why - EVERY note for every song in the entire book has a finger number under it, and my student was just reading the finger numbers rather than memorizing what the notes looked like. I was wondering why my supplemental note-training was not sticking! I do not recommend this method at all if you want your students to learn to read music, and I am disappointed for the temporary set-back in my student's training. I have switched to Alfred, and it has been perfect for all my young beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Old Timer remembers John Thompson April 4 2012
By Jerry W. ODELL - Published on Amazon.com
Just a note from a 77 year old man.

About 1944 (in the war) my mother got me a big square piano, and a teacher, who
brought along a copy of Teaching Little Fingers to play.

Oddly, I sailed through the thing, and since that time have continued to play

It is a lovely memory. It's a little like Dick and Jane, which I also happened to like!
