My kids(5&7) are up and coming pianists. They love to mess around with the piano on their own at different times of the day. They enjoy a few of the songs in this book.

We use several different teaching books including the Teaching Little Fingers to Play- beginning course. But they don't want to just learn music, they want to play music, the real stuff- ASAP! That's the way I learned: pure desire.

I do spend time going over basic music skills, theory and easy finger exercises; however, the bulk of our time and their practice is learning songs. It's mostly rote and ear, but they love to play the catchy, memorable, to them, songs until they have perfected them. Then they show them off to others. They're eager to do this without me urging them on or grinding the lessons into their easily distracted minds- so, I'm running with it, and trying to find music that appeals to them.

There's only a few songs in this book, and the only ones they like are The Siamese Cats, Kiss the Girl and somewhat, Winnie the Pooh. The rest of the songs are too boring for them or a bit obscure.

They include teacher accompaniments and some finger numbering. The songs sound OK and with repeated practice the children get them down fairly quickly. Each child is different and learns as such.

I pencil the ivories with numbers and notes; play the song for them, suggesting fingerings, and let them go- helping them when they ask or when they're in the mood, leaving them alone when they want private time with the instrument.

An updated book with more popular songs sure would be great!

I like this book because it is easy for beginners but also has songs that my daughter can recognize. This book is a great motivator because she is playing music she likes.

I purchased this book after finding it in my search. The book seemed to be what I was looking for, a book with material he could practice over the summer. He is in the second grade and he can read some music. But this book is a little more advanced. Now classes are back in session and my son's piano teacher helps him with the music. There are alot of sharps and flats and if your child is like my son, he or she won't be ready to tackle it alone. Also, the selection of songs is not his or my favorite. There are some not very well known and antiquated songs in this book. I was looking for "You've got a friend in me". But we did not find it in this book. And they don't list all the songs in the book in the description on Amazon. I wish they could make a "Teaching Little Fingers to Play" book with more contemporary and popular disney film songs.

This is a great collection of songs for beginning piano students. They are all centered around middle C, and they progress well in difficulty (never particularly taxing, but the students definitely learn from going through the book). I often use this either on its own, or in coordination with a method book (I like the Piano Adventures series - this would go well after the prep book and before level 1). The students do need to be able to read the notes for middle C position (though the fingerings provided would also serve as a crutch). It's the easiest of the Disney song collections that I use regularly, and students love it.

As a music teacher, I have been teaching my young granddaughter to play the piano. When she asked me to find her some Disney songs to play, I thought it might be impossible to find them for her level. These arrangements were perfect for her, and she has been enjoying playing them. Thanks to Amazon for such prompt service.

This book is not worth the paper it is written on. Nothing to it. More for the teacher to play than the student and very disorganized. Quite a confusing book and my poor kids!!!!!! I have many other Disney books that are much better. The price was attractive but not worth it!! EASY--NO! CONFUSING--YES! Glad I only ordered one!
