Great series of books teaching how to play the piano.
T. Kiyak
This book has songs that are really fun to play and gets progressively harder the farther you go into it, as all lesson books should.
Lacie Dugas
This is a good series and good book to follow for beginner students.

This book certainly has variety.
One song featured a whole tone scale that I thought was pretty cool.

My daughter's favorite song was about a woodchuck.
She would sing in a raucous voice while she played.
Her teacher (as the book suggests) had her play it in minor as well.
She made up new words for that version about how the woodchuck died.

Another standout is Aardvark Boogie with the big left hand position change.
The other songs, some of which are not about small mammals, are good, too.

I have been teaching piano at the beginner and intermediate levels for ten years. I find the Faber & Faber Piano Adventures Lesson Book to be thorough with regard to well-rounded piano instruction. Their newer version duplicates some of the supplemental materials that I provide (i.e., pentachords, scales, I-IV-V chords), which my students learn far in advance of the book's timeline. By the time most of my students complete level 2A, they have memorized all the major pentachords and scales and are working on the minor keys. Still, for under $8 per lesson book, this series is affordable and packed with songs that my students enjoy learning. I appreciate the massive efforts of Faber & Faber to make piano study fun and steadily progressive.

Arrived on time and in perfect condition. Great series for piano students. I have used these from the beginning with my kids and find them very easy to follow. They have very nice songs, and have a diverse collection of music.

Great series of books teaching how to play the piano. Our piano teacher uses this series, and I have spoken to at least four more instructors in the area that all use these series to teach piano. Our daughter started with the first book in the series at age 5 and has been going through the books for the last two years. They teach the concepts progressively, with focus on good technique, enough variation, and a good selection of songs. She is never bored, and learns at a consistent pace. The main books for each level are called "Lesson Book". The "Technique and Artistry Book" for the same level is a companion to help students improve their knowledge and technique about music and piano artistry. So they complement each other well, and we tend to move in parallel in both of those books. We primarily use those two in our classes. For each level there are also "popular repertoire" and "Christmas books" that take well known and liked songs and arrange them for that specific level of learning. We've sprinkled these here and there to keep things interesting for our daughter. There are also CDs that accompany the books, but I have no experience in those.

Always use Faber, along with Junior Hanon and various Fake Books. Feel it is up to date and covers things in a reasonable time frame.
