I adore this book and use it often in my teaching. I have used it for children as young as 7 and for adults. I use it as an additional book to the core curriculum and it gives a quick fun look into some of the most familiar of the classics. I also teach about the composers as we go.

A student needs to have studied for about a year but then if you work slowly they can learn these pieces. The fingering is often tricky but can be learned with a bit of patience.

This is a fabulous option for those just starting out learning to play and read music. For those who are re-learning or already know their scales, this might be too easy.

As very much a beginner pianist, I found this book to be just right. It has some very lovely music that is fun to play. Not too easy, but not too hard either.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star was not cutting it for me as an adult learner. The book has a nice assortment of music that is familiar to those who like classical music, while being simplified for the level that I'm at. I'm enjoying it greatly.

I'm teaching my mom to play the piano, and bought this for her as a Christmas present. This is a good, basic piano book. The songs are simple to play but don't sound like beginner's pieces.

As an advanced piano player, I can easily sit down and play all these songs well. But for my mom who is just starting out, it is still a little advanced for her. She is capable of playing these pieces with just one hand, but combining them is difficult for her. So, if you're still starting out and aren't good at reading/playing both hands simultaneously, then this book might be a pushing your comfort level, but I think it is still within reach.

Super, I use to play many of the classics in a more advanced format, but with being absent from the piano for too many years due to multiple health conditions which restricted my playing, this book has given me the motivation to re-learn many of these old classics. Format is clear and good - even for me with diminishing eye-sight. And when they say, "easy" they mean "easy" - no problem with discouragement of finding the piece too difficult for hands suffering from mock tunnel syndrome and a back condition that is often restrictive.

I ordered this book after years of dabbling on the piano because I wanted to learn to read piano music better and to coordinate my left and right hand. This book has provided a challenge that is just right for me at this stage, and most of the pieces sound pretty good in their simplified version. I have improved greatly just in the few weeks I have spent with this book, and by the time I have made all of the music in this book sound smooth I am sure I will be way better than now. It is a good book for beginners and just challenging enough.

My daughter is trying to learn the piano, but wants to try and teach herself first. This book rescued the entire family. She went from playing two songs to playing many. It is so much nicer to hear Beethoven's 9th 400 times in a row than it is to hear Heart and Soul 400 times in a row. Great selection of music, easy to read, room for making notes (literally if needed).
