As a piano/music instructor for almost 20 years, The Piano Lesson is one of the most thorough, versatile, and well-written texts on the market. I love it because I can use it with the very young as well as on the college level with my private and group piano students. The wide scope of material allows me to utilize it in my Music Fundamentals, Ear Training and Music Appreciation classes as well. It is the perfect supplemental text for all ages and levels and most of all, the students love the practical approach and progression of the material. DEFINITELY A FIVE STAR RATING.
