   Love playing from this book!
I am an intermediate piano player and this music is perfect, it sounds like elton's songs without his expert talent. I can not read it quite well, but it doesn't take much work to make it sounding great!
   Great collection!!
He likes to teach his favorite songs on his electric keyboard himself. This collection of songs by Sir Elton absolutely LOVED. It made his Christmas completely. I recommend it to the musician and Elton John lover in your family.
   Love the Song Selection
I have a student who is an adult who has taken lessons for 3+ years. She is trying to play these songs. The songs are, however, very well arranged. I would recommend this book to an intermediate pianist.
   Pianists/singers Grade 2 & 3
I liked the selection of songs included in the book. Well-known songs are easy to sing and play along.
   This is for beginners.
Some of the reviews have led me to think that this was an intermediate book for piano players. If you'd have a few years of lessons, pass this one and get something that has chords for goodness sakes.
   Music for vocal melodies, not piano harmony.
The music is usually just vocal melodies. There are no real chords, no real harmony, and trying to play his vocal melodies on the piano sounds bad.
   Good selection of songs in nice arrangments.
This book has a beautiful selection of songs in great arrangements. I gave this book with 4 stars only because it is advertised as easy piano, but a number of the songs have little to no fingering information. This caused me to feel deceived and I needed to ask my piano teacher for help. As another reviewer mentioned, the songs are in different keys than the recordings, which led to a number of this can not be right moments for me. On closer examination the songs have been transferred to C, F and G major keys to reduce the number of the sharps and flats -- I can 't blame them for that, I suppose. Sir Elton wrote music in sensitive rhythms -- be prepared for a challenge in this regard!
   Great arrangements
I don 't have much time for practicing anymore, so I buy an easy piano for sight reading. I am able to play most of these songs right away and the arrangements are great.
   Good music to learn and play!
He writes and plays a lot of his own music, I wanted to introduce music from Elton John, he loves all the music from this book, he learns and plays a different song every few days, it is very easy for him to learn and play.
This book is perfect at my level of skill. None of the songs have more than 2 sharps or 2 lowland flats. Each song includes some of Elton's instrumental parts of his music, just enough to give each song a professional feel. I would probably buy this book again!
