Piano Time 1 starts at the very beginning, with simple five-finger tunes for hands separately and together, many with duet parts. It gradually adds more notes and techniques to cover sharps and flats, simple scales and keys, and a range of dynamics and symbols.
"The highly popular Piano Time series has undergone a full facelift. The most striking change is the new presentation: all Piano Time series books now tout bright and shiny colourful covers, with illustrations throughout. The pedagogics have seen minor changes too: content is ordered with a more natural approach to pace and degree of difficulty. Free supplementary material for the series is also included. Downloads comprise additional new pieces, a teacher's guide and a few MP3s of the pieces. Without a doubt, the most useful is the free-to-print PDF material, divided into two categories: extra pieces for the student, and duet parts for the teacher." - Alec Boulton, Music Teacher, Feb 05
"It's brighter and even better says the
sticker on the front of Pauline Hall's Piano Time volumes. And it's true! The tutors move at a good pace and both they and the repertoire books have added pieces and pictures with some particularly characterful contributions from Alan Bullard." - Pamela Lidiard, EPTA Piano Professional, Jan 05
