    I love it!

    Great book, easy to follow, with a nice selection of exercises and easy arrangements of classical pieces. A great starter for someone who wants to learn to play the piano on their own. Also the video tutorials are well made and nicely presented. I love the idea of bar codes too! Good job Alison!

    Great helpful lessons

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jan 2018

    I am self taught and I am able to play ABRSM grade 4 pieces, but I neglected scales and arpeggio thinking I didn't need them .
    I decided to go back and learn them using the online piano tutor books .
    Since using the book daily and following the lessons my playing as improved greatly.
    With video back up I think this a close as you can get to personal piano lessons . I recommend these books to anyone wanting to learn piano .

    Very well thought-out lessons

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Jan 2018

    As an adult beginner I am finding this course excellent, taking me through in small enough steps to stop me getting discouraged. I have already recommended this course to several friends who gave up piano years ago and now want to try again. I even look forward to doing scales as it seems to help progress and the progressive exercises are great.

    I started piano at age 12 and stopped at 16/17 for various reasons. I've always felt guilty for stopping and regretted it. I've always wanted to start again but the lessons available elsewhere were way too kiddy for my tastes. Then along came Alison; I found her videos quite by accident (I was looking for music for my violin, which I also need to restart) and I'm so glad I did. The practice exercises on here are beautiful, so far I'm at Exercise 1 of Lesson 20 and it's my favourite song right now.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Alison. Nuff love!!!

    very understable for beginners

    I'm in my book 2 now and Ms. Sparrow has been a tremendous help in my learning. The instructions in the books are so easy to understand. I am so thankful i first atumbled upon her on youtube! The book is just like having her beside you and it made my learning doable and not a strain or struggle. She helped me overcome my preconceptions about piano as intimidating. I highly recommend this book for beginners.

    The information is repeated as you work through the book enabling me to understand things as I work through it. It connects well and expands on the previous book. It looks complicated work but is good to have someone take time to show you how to do this properly which is building my confidence and giving me a better understanding of music. The music is explained in a simple and clear way as though someone is talking to you. I like the PDF format so I can print off sheets and the links take me online directly to hear how the exercises sound. There is a new feature for Quick Response Codes as well. I found the personal advice on how to do things most helpful and suggestions for revision and practice help me organise myself.

    Another elderly learner!

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Feb 2016

    To my amazement I find I am making real progress using these piano tutorials and I am a complete beginner aged 63. I think the YouTube videos make all the difference when something just won't sink in or I am losing heart. Alison is absolutely correct about the work needed on scales and arpeggios and I feel it is beginning to pay off.
