The John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course is designed to present the easiest possible approach to piano playing, complete with an amusing family of characters and illustrations to help emphasize the information being taught. Part one is devoted to developing fluency in reading by note, the biggest hurdle for most young children. The range is purposely limited. Only five notes up and five notes down from middle C are presented and time values do not go beyond crotchets. Each book of the course contains its own writing exercises, sight-reading drills, review work and later, technical studies. Accompaniments for teacher or parent are supplied with most of the examples. In celebration of 120 years of Willis Music, the beloved characters in John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course Parts One - Four have been redrawn. The content remains the same, so, like countless others before them, today's young students can continue to benefit from the Easiest Courses's clear and simple approach.
