I have been teaching for over 30 years and am thrilled with The Piano Lesson! It is so convenient to have several books melded into one. My students like the idea of having fewer books to keep up with and they don’t misplace their binders. The Scale portion of the book is my favorite. The order in which they are laid out is not only logical, but also practical. It is great that in the lower levels they are written out in both letters and on the staff. It reinforces all the basics. I find that the organization of this material has helped keep me focused during the year and gets everything covered. Several of my student’s parents are schoolteachers. They have commented that they really appreciate these books. It helps them understand what their child is learning over the course of the school year.
I would highly recommend The Piano Lesson to any piano teacher, experienced or novice. It has made my lessons more complete, less stressful and more organized.
