Disappointing

by Woodland on Jan 15, 2008

I've been a fan of Reader's Digest Books for years, so I was excited about this book. It was disappointing. I read music and play a bit. I ordered this book for my family as a self-teaching tool. The first problem we encountered was the sticker system. Instead of labeling the keys with their actual notes, some labels are numbers, and some are key names. This was confusing for my daughter, and it seems that using numbers makes the learning process more complicated for some learners. The second concern we had involved the selection of music. Most of the songs are quite old. They may appeal to learners who are fifty and above. Most younger learners have not been exposed to the music. This places them at a disadvantage, I think, because they cannot rely on familiarity to assess how well they are doing. Had we not already removed the stickers from the book and placed them on the keyboard, I would have returned it.
