Jibbidy F was my first piano instruction book and, as a musician and teacher, I still believe that it stands head and shoulders above its modern counterparts. Most beginner books rush a student through the "basics" learning curve, mainly to impress parents who want a demonstration of talent for the money they pay. While the parent gains a measure of entertainment value, the student is weaker for this make-it-happen approach.

Jibbidy-F allows a child to learn, absorb and reinforce basic skills in ONE book that other publishers cover in two or three volumes. The Jibbidy-F student is more confident, capable, solid in foundational knowledge and better prepared to build upon that base in the years to come.

I was a first grade, Royal Conservatory of Music student within one year of completing this book and went on to complete two Conservatory grades per year before getting my BA in Music. It is unfortunate that this book is no longer published in North America. I still use Jibbidy F, especially with young beginners who need a good grounding or those who have come to me from other teachers, frustrated that they do not understand the most basic musical concepts. From this teacher's perspective, why teach and then reteach the same concepts using multiple books when students can learn to play the piano using one great teaching book?

I agree with previous comments. This is a great book for children and also adults returning to piano after many years or just starting. There's a lot of information that is well organized and well formatted in this small book; after completing the student will have a firm foundation to continue learning.

Perfect piano learning or relearning the keyboard, after not playing for many years. Good exercise for
retraining non-writing hand. Worth searching and waiting for reciept

A great start to piano! This older book is a nice change to today's books without the staff!
