The below books are all in the 'Learn To Play Piano' series which accompany each other and follow on from each other.
It is recommended that once you have completed the Tutorial book, you move onto the Song Book of the same level as this will give you more practise at that level before you move on:
I was hesitant to order the books, but after not being able to follow along with the videos I decided to order the combo set for the first book and song book. I am an absolute beginner, with zero musical experience what so ever. I watched several tutorials online, but Allison's were by far the most informative! I really am impressed with the work she put into the books. She has a link for each exercise that takes you directly to the video AND to the exact spot in the video where she plays it! She also has the scan code you can scan with your phone. I'm really enjoying the progression of learning the keys and learning one hand and two hands separately and now two hands together. I also really like that she has the notes written in for people like me who can't read music yet, but is slowly taking away a few of them to get you used to it. I've mastered everything up to lesson 9 which is both hands together. My husband who can play any instrument you give him is impressed by her book and very impressed with my progress!! I'll be buying the next book soon!! Thanks for making me feel like I have my own personal teacher in my home with me!
The Combo Deal is great value. I have been enjoying working my way through the different exercises and songs, and feel that I am getting rock-solid tuition from someone who really knows what they are talking about. I would highly recommend Alison's online tuition and books.
I have never played piano before but after 5 lessons I feel feel like I have improved a lot! It's easy to use and explained very well! No complaints!!
Bought a keyboard a week ago and found the online tutorials, then downloaded the book a few days later, and am already up to Lesson 9! The lessons in the book and videos are so comprehensive and easy to follow, I am thoroughly enjoying it as a complete beginner! I would highly recommend this product.
Great course to learn piano. I plan to do the entire course. Not only will you learn to play. You have the joy of learning from a beautiful talented woman. Nothing to lose here. Highly recommended!!
Without any previous musical experience at all I approached this course, after a good look around at alternative ways to learn, with some trepidation. No problem --- Allison builds from one small brick to the next in a simple,straightforward progression, theory being slowly introduced only as and when required. Youtube videos are very helpful and marry well to the book.
The advantage of this form of learning is, of course, that you plod along at your own pace although, strangely, I often feel the "presence" of my tutor [but not so strongly that I desist from loudly and roundly cursing my often feeble efforts].
I'm up to lesson 9/10 now and looking forward to Book 2.
As I only downloaded these publications a couple of days ago, it would be unfair to pass comment on their ability to teach me to play, but in terms of value for money I really can't see where anyone could go wrong here. At a time when a second-rate paperback from W H Smith costs about £7.99, there's an awful lot of info crammed into these two books for less than double that price. Given that the excellent YouTube tutorials which accompany the books are available to the student 24/7 for free, what's not to like about this package? Well done Alison!
My background story is a familiar one. I was the kid who wanted piano lessons back in the 1960s, but had no piano and my parents couldn't afford one, or the cost of tuition. They probably didn't relish the idea of creating a Rick Wakeman clone either, but that's another story! At the age of 63 I Googled "piano tutors in the Norwich area" and stumbled upon these gems. Although Alison operates her business less than 5 miles from my home, this online course is a much more flexible learning method for me than traditional face-to-face lessons, and is so affordable. Who knows, if I manage to progress beyond the initial faltering steps on my cheapo second-hand Yamaha keyboard, I may well decide to hone my technique with some one-to-one tuition. In the meantime, any lack of progress on my part will be down to my input as a student, since the tutor has spared no effort in preparing this excellent online course.
It's very helpful.
As a (very) late beginner I've found the combination of the books and the You Tube lessons wonderful for motivating me to make progress, which this material really does create. The early stages are tough, but looking ahead, the books provide a fantastic target to continue working towards.
