    This Teaching method works!

    Posted by Mary K. Patterson on 7th Jul 2015

    The books and tutorials go hand in hand making learning, practicing and playing the piano easy, fun and joyful. I no longer feel intimidated by the piano, instead I love to pick up a piece of music and see how far I can play it. It amazes me how quickly I have been able to learn with Allison's teachings verses other methods I have attempted. Her videos are informative and extremely helpful. A+++ Teaching!

    Great little simple book

    Posted by Jose E. on 6th May 2015

    I have been playing guitar and bass since my late teens. Also taught myself how to play drums, but when it came to playing keyboards or piano, I was never able to progress beyond playing mostly basic chords. I was always intimated by piano scales until now. I love Alison's approach to practicing scales, it has allowed me to start playing scales with both hands like never before. It is a good idea to link the book to the videos, which as a matter of fact, are great. I will be waiting for #3.

    Never to old to star to learn.

    Posted by Ricardo on 20th Apr 2015

    I'm guitar player. And know would like to learn how to play the piano. Book 1 is a comprehensive easy to understand well define, right to the point material, even as a guitar player I was able to refresh to prepare me to book 2 . I'm 65 years old and I want to do this to encourage other in my church to do the same, and in the process have fun doing it. God bless you Alison for passing on your talent to us in the easy way. Thanks, Ricardo.

    Excellent book

    Posted by Rene Raymond on 7th Apr 2015

    For almost forty years, I hoped that one day I would learn to play the piano. This day has finally come. I searched the Internet in order to find a good way to achieve my goal. It took some time before I found by chance Alison's videos. I couldn't believe that someone with her qualifications would offer such a wealth of knowledge for free.

    After watching all the videos, I decided to buy the second book (I did not need the first one because, being a guitar player, I am already quite familiar with its content). What a wise decision that was! All the concepts are explained in a way that makes learning that much easier. Since I downloaded the book on my iPad, I can conveniently refer to it during my piano practices and whenever I need to.

    Thank you, Alison, for taking the time to write this book. I can’t wait to read the third one.

    Never Gave it a Chance

    Posted by Mike Lowdon on 23rd Mar 2015

    I was not so sure that book 1 was going anywhere. I was definitely wrong and for me " ask my wife" that is a real climb-down . I am thrilled I have both books and can now view them as probably the best thing I have done. That for a 77year-old really is something. I am now starting to do what I always wanted to do. My Younger brother got the upright Bechstien and can play very well - self taught now I have a tutor, if only Alison Sparrow knew, she may have given me more encouragement than I get from any other quarter. Thankyou for such an excellent beginning to my Piano playing attempt
