    At 72, I have been taking group piano lessons for less than two months using The Older Beginner Piano Course. Our instructor recommended this companion book. She was absolutely right. Even is such a short time the melodies are accessible and fun to play.

  • October 24, 2010 Fantastic! Great Songs, and so beautiful sounding!

    This is a graded piano book, most pieces start out in this book easy at early elementary level with nice left hand chords, then it gradually gets more complicate up to late elementary-early intermediate, maybe not as hard to play as it looks! Sounds Great, and very nice large...

    selections of the most famous old & new piano "songs" - A must have for every beginning piano student, or at school teachers can play these, too, etc. etc, play at any place anytime!
