Great series of books teaching how to play the piano. Our piano teacher uses this series, and I have spoken to at least four more instructors in the area that all use these series to teach piano. Our daughter started with the first book in the series at age 5 and has been going through the books for the last two years. They teach the concepts progressively, with focus on good technique, enough variation, and a good selection of songs. She is never bored, and learns at a consistent pace. The main books for each level are called "Lesson Book". The "Technique and Artistry Book" for the same level is a companion to help students improve their knowledge and technique about music and piano artistry. So they complement each other well, and we tend to move in parallel in both of those books. We primarily use those two in our classes. For each level there are also "popular repertoire" and "Christmas books" that take well known and liked songs and arrange them for that specific level of learning. We've sprinkled these here and there to keep things interesting for our daughter. There are also CDs that accompany the books, but I have no experience in those.

I love teaching from this series, using the Lesson, Technique, Performance and Theory books. All the units move forward together and each book offers a different sort of challenge. The technique book is the one with the deceptively repetitive exercise-like pieces, with an emphasis on mastering physical motions. It makes me smile when students return after a week on a piece thinking that it was "easy" due to the repetition...and not having practiced it all week because they achieved the correct notes in the first practice session. It's the second week with the piece where you show them all those lovely motions (for the second time!) and the light bulb goes off.. Students learn to focus on connecting with their body, arms, wrists and fingers early on in their lessons, and learn to appreciate the zen of the physical connection to their art.
My kids have been using this series for years, so I knew what to expect. Many piano teachers use this series
My 9 year old loves this Piano technique book, even thought she is not a fan of piano lessons.
We bought these books at the prompting of a woman who was going to teach piano to our daughter. It turned out she was unable to teach her and the new teacher had never used these books. After going through level 1 books, we decided these books were very thorough and we liked how they progressed through teaching piano. We had a few other level. 2 books we planned to use, but they did jot follow the same sequence of teaching, so we bought these books again. We really like the songs they use for the lessons and they provide many duets to play together. The duets are not only fun, but they sound really good!

We included this book I. The level 2 books, but the entire set of books is a little too much to get through in a 45 min. Lesson, so we cut out the Performance book, sight reading and added in Classicss and Hymns
Very nice Piano series book. My daughters is using since age 4 and started with Level 0. She moved into Level 2A and started using it.

I was expecting Scale technique using hand move over technique rather than 5 fixed fingers. I believe it's better to learn right technique in one go rather than learning 5 keys only (without move over technique).
This is what my son's 2nd piano teacher use for teaching and he's a really good musician so this must be great. My son started with the Alfred's piano books and I love that too. The delivery is fast and the price is just right.
