    One of my sons just likes playing these songs as a supplement to his Suzuki instruction. They are catchy and progress very gradually–much more gradually than the Suzuki repetoire. Then, his twin brother, whom I’ve tried for years to interest in music, thought the songs from this book were so cool that he has started playing them and now wants music lessons, too! I’m so thrilled. I reckon he has always found the Suzuki progression to be too intimidating and quick. This one takes it slower and has much cuter pictures.

    NOT for the earliest beginners, October 11, 2007

    Despite what the title says, “A Book For The Earliest Beginner”, I feel that it’s not for the kids younger than 6 or 7. Requiring to read the music clarification on the lines right from the beginning is too much for the kids who barely know alphabets. This book could be fine for older kids or for supplementing other courses. Try Alfred’s books which I found much simpler and gradual on very childish children. If they are below 5, you could try Alfred’s Prep Course.

    My 6 yo daughter likes this book. We bought three beginner books from here and this is her pet and she “plays’ all the time. I like that it is simpler to use than some of the others. It is very simple to teach from, but she can map alot of it out herself. It is written towards a childs prespective.
