      A good series to help piano learning

      Learning the piano is pretty difficult, even harder if your a child and have trouble concentrating in lessons. This book provides the best way of learning for me to help kids learn how to play.

      First of all, it has lots of colour, pictures and only one piece per page which is very important as looking at lots of different songs just demotivates straight away. There are tunes that people will recognise, and there are also words to sing along to.

      Through the book it has a reoccuring theme of the musical rainbow, it shows you which notes are which clearly labelled on a picture of the actual piano keys. It also moves at a slow pace, using both the right and left hand at the same time. Book one teaches you from the beginning and this builds on that.

      The pictures are large and colourful, and theres also the obligatory certificate at the back so when all the tunes are completed then the teacher can sign it and the kids can have it to stick on the fridge.

      It goes from around a good beginner to about grade 1 standard, it teaches how to move hand positions quickly and without too much explaining or writing.

      This is not a teach yourself book, if you learn from this you also need a teacher to do the explaining as theres no writing.

      There are a few quiz sections that the pupil can complete with help from the tutor, it also has a few mini quizs dotted around next to pieces to be included in the lessons.

      This is by far the best book for children to learn piano with and I have tried loads! It costs between £4 - 7 depending on where you buy it.
