A book for the earliest beginner, combining note and note approach with something new in every lesson. The accompanying CD is a wonderful tool for enhancing this method with highly acclaimed midi-orchestrated backing tracks. Practice becomes so much fun! Each track is split to enable the pupil to hear both Piano part and accompaniment if the balance is centred, the accompaniment without the Piano if the balance control is all the way to the left, and the Piano part alone if it is all the way over to the right! There are also two tempos for each song, allowing slower practice while it's needed - an ideal accompaniment to learning!
