John Thompson was famous for his sincere efforts to interest young pupils in pianism. This series is a clear, correct and complete foundation in the study of the piano to enable the student to think and feel musically. All of his books teach, in the simplest language possible, interpretation and expression. One ideal is "to use in miniature the same attacks as those used by the concert artist.".

  • September 13, 2021 John Thompson's Modern Course-piano - second grade

    My piano teacher uses this book and I like it so much I purchased my own copy. I'm 72 and took up piano a few years ago. I'll never be a great player, but I like that the pieces are challenging with different techniques and styles, yet not...

    so difficult that they are not frustrating to learn and are fun for me. The extra bonus is that the newer edition is on white paper which is much easier for me to read.

    I love the Thompson books! The progress fast but building on past skills, keeping the students interested and learning new things with almost every lesson. I love the pace... not too fast or too slow. I like my students to be able to spend 2-3 weeks perfecting the songs...

    . Thompson creates songs that show the student's skills in impressive sounding work with simple skills so the songs are great for recitals!

  • December 23, 2019 the best one I found

    I have compared this with almost all the others modern courses, and I like this one the best. It's less easy than most and the pieces are of high quality, you won't find any weird or corny sounding music here, basically JT was a romantic pianist, so you...

    'll find all the good stuff from Bach to Tchaikovski in this series
