The piano instructor uses these and I can see why. They are effective and enjoyable. Of course, a great piano teacher is the most important!

Good for beginners. I am not a professional, but teaching my daughter just occasionally on the side as I played for years. This has worked for us for now until I'm ready to hand her off to a pro teacher.

I love these books for the earlier beginner. They make the learning piano seem more 'manageable' and enjoyable for those that struggle a bit with the basic course as well.
