    Piano Method

    Alison is by far the number one online teacher in my opinion. She presents material in a precise, easy to understand format and her coinciding video lesson's are informative as well as entertaining. 10 stars !!

    The lessons are very helpful and easy to follow, while the exercises help me to apply my newfound knowledge to different melodies on the piano.

    I’m loving it!

    I’m enjoying this book so much right now! I got it around a week ago and have been practicing for an hour daily ever since! It comes in clear detail and with the YouTube videos she puts out, it makes it even easier! It’s like your own tutor right there other than learning on your own which I really love about this series

    Learn to Play Piano Book One

    Posted by Mr Alfred Clark on 30th Jul 2018

    I regret even though retired and 80 + finding enough time to devote is the only reason it has taken me so long to now order Book Two. I have found everything so well explained and well supported with the Video lessons a real pleasure to embrace in helping me in an extremely late attempt to try to learn to play piano. As a child music education started and stopped in infant school and my early years sadly never offered any opportunity . I envy todays youth who like me can find a Lovely ' ONLINE TUTOR '.

    Some Old Timer

    Posted by Alfred J Clark on 9th Mar 2018

    On a visit to Utube accidentally found this video Learn To Play Piano by Alison M Sparrow. I liked what I saw and followed the directions to d/load Book 1. Now after a couple of weeks I am happy to say I am very pleased I did.The small investment is nothing to get started and future tuition in Books 2,3, and 4 are available when I'm ready I am very long in tooth at 80 + but if this young lady can help me to be able to read notation and play to any standard I believe she will have well and truly achieved.

    Very easy to understand well taught

    Posted by Paul on 5th Jan 2018

    I did have some piano lessons in the late 70s and early 80s but never learnt the notes nor grasp the music well enough I'm now nearly 50 and thought i would like to learn properly. The book is well presented and reasonably priced,the text is clear with large music scores, numbering and note letters are a big help especially when trying to play with both hands, there is a gentle introduction to the theory and practice especially when you reach the practice pieces; i have progressed quickly with this book; Allison has that natural ability to teach despite having many years of being a musician I'm glad i came across her, her youtube videos are brilliant and well thought out and structured but she could do with some overhead contraption to mount her camera above her piano a bit cumbersome sometimes. Nice one Allison keep up the good work looking forward to moving on to book 2.
