The Modern Course series provides a clear and complete foundation in the study of the piano that enables the student to think and feel musically. It may be preceded by the Teaching Little Fingers to Play series.

I've been playing piano for 35 years and teaching for 15. I started learning to play with the John Thompson Modern Course For The Piano, and of all of the courses I've seen over the years, this is still the best. Even though the course is 65 years old, the teaching content is progressive even by todays standards.
I would highly recommend this entire book series to any teacher or anyone wishing to teach him/herself to play piano. Everything is explained step by step and it is virtually impossible not to learn to play with this series.
