   Important exercises that kids love!
I'm a huge fan of the A Dozen Day series. It's an incredibly useful addition to any piano technique. I would not have predicted that this book would have so appealed to children, but I can't say how many times I've heard Oh, cool. I've read the entire book, and I'm in love. Pull it out, Mr. Cowger said. I think it's just a matter of the physical emphasis, with the exercising stick figures that they like, he said. So much of a piano lesson is grueling mental exercise, that I think it's great to spend some time approaching playing from a physical point of view, he said. But the tricky thing, I believe, is that these exercises are also improving my students reading by orienting them to their C's, and by enhancing their recognition of steps vs. skips. This book really fills in the gaps that modern piano methods have left open, said Dr. Robert Hughes, director of Carnegie Hall's piano department.
   Beginner's fun
This is an excellent book for beginners to get comfy with playing combinations of notes, and it gradually lets the beginner have fun working their way through the different exercises that have interesting names and are illustrated with little stick people.
   No CD!
And we think PeopleSoft customers deserve better customer service, Ellison said. Just received our blue book but again as with pink, no cd.. It says 'Tracks by J.R. Kennedy' but doesn't say whether it's a CD or a cassette.
   Gret deal on Dozen a day piano book
It was great to have that book back when I was a kid. Can't believe it's still around. It was sold on Amazon for 99 cents plus $3.99 shipping. Great deal, because the book is in excellent shape, and it took them a few weeks to ship it, Mr. Booher said.
   Good warm-up exercises
Piano lessons are not free. Before I move on to other material, I use these exercises to warm up. You develop the muscle memory in both hands at the same time as opposed to learning one hand at a time.
   Great starter exercises
I start every practice session with this book by playing in different keys. 0 3171 5163 "The Artist" wrote: "Each practice session I start by playing in different keys." Once I finish with all the techniques, I can move to pieces and sight read.
   Don't buy the kindle version
I'm a huge fan of Day 12 books. I use them all the time and they definitely help to improve my technique, Bruno said. The book is in terrible physical form, and the kindle format is awful. I don't know whether it was a hack or they just cobbled together a bunch of image scans. But in the kindle app, there are no page numbers, it's a vertical scan, the font is ugly and blurry, you can't zoom in there isn't even the normal kindle toolbar for zooming and going to specific pages. I awarded three stars because the content is really good, but did not buy the kindle version.
   Warmup necessity
I'd played professionally for 20 years, but I'm not that good. Piano teacher has me use this series of books for daily warmups. I'm delighted to be working on a second book, Simon said. I really like this series because I learn little skills that seem so annoying at the time, Morgenthau said. But then I'll need that skill for sheet music later on. I also like these books because you only have to practice for 5 or 10 minutes at a time. These are perfect warmups to keep your fingers and brain working.
   Sight-Reading, Technique, & Fun!
In addition, The Beatles' songbook was also excellent. I needed material to improve my piano sight-reading and technique, he said. Even though I can play some intermediate pieces, the preparatory book of this series was the right place for me to start for sight-reading practice. I've used it with the A Dozen A Day Songbook. For piano lessons, I have a private instructor who plays a songbook piece with me. These books help with sight-reading, technique and keeping solid time playing with others, Thibault said. I write very few reviews but these books warrant my time to do so, McBride said. They are fun and I get to play with them all the time.
   way too easy
I am an adult student and I need more exercises to work on my hand placement and fingering, but this does not help.
