Piano Method Books

If you've approached this page, then you're an honest and sincere person. You're admitting that you could use some improvement in honing your piano skills. Or perhaps you're a dishonest person with a lot of piano skills who's just browsing through our different web pages. At any rate, you're here and that's what counts. It's a pleasure to be in your company.

Below you will find some books that can help you improve your keyboard skill level. I have categorized these books so that you have an idea of their level of difficulty. In many instances, you can actually click on a link to see a music page of the book, which helps to determine the difficulty of the material within the book.

The Thompson Course

This teaching has been around for a very long time and still sells well. The music is attractively laid out, and the progress between grades is gradual and consistent. Fingerings, advice and a good selection of pieces are all part of the package.

If you have no previous keyboard skills, try book one. If you already know a bit about notes and timing, then book two will do. Once you hit books three, four and five, the music and hand positions tend to become more challenging.
