4.0 out of 5 stars Used for teaching children piano February 2, 2009
I use this book to teach my students, ages 5-11 how to play piano from the most basic level. It has been wonderful. Not only are the songs fun to play, but a lot of them are tunes that the kids know, which makes it more fun for them. It also incorporates the theory in with the playing, so my students never get too bored! I highly recommend these books to any piano teacher looking for a good book to start their students on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young piano students February 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My sister has a college major in Piano Performance and teaches piano lessons so I asked for her recommendation for a book to teach a 3rd grade beginning piano student. She recommended Alfred's All-In-One Course books because they include lessons, theory, and recital pieces so the student doesn't have to have use separate books for each of these during their lesson. I started my student with Book 1 and she did a great job with it. The lesson pages are followed by corresponding theory workbook pages that are relevant to what the student has just learned so the instructional progression is very smooth. I recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piano lesson books June 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach my 2 kids piano (age 10 and 12). They are doing very well and it's easy for me to teach with this set of lesson books. I like that it has theory and practice all in one book. It makes it easier. Also, clear instructions for teaching each lesson and song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for my 7-year-old July 7, 2011
By Rio
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My little one enjoys the mix of songs to play with other musical things to learn. At least for my child, it would be hard to choose a better course. I have also used the same course in the adult version as a review for myself and it is nice how they progress similarly.

4.0 out of 5 stars great system for all ages December 26, 2013
By sally
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a classic piano curriculum for a reason. My four year old is in book one, my eight year old is using this book. It will make its way down the line. I love Alfred for their good selections, non irritating practice pieces, and the inclusion of music theory into the mix.
