Susan Paradis from the Piano Teacher Resources blog has written has excellent review of the The Perfect Start for Piano by Kevin & Julia Olson, a series of books intended for reinforcing note-reading on the staff for beginners and elementary level students. They look great – I love that fact that they are designed to work with whatever method books you are using with your student! To learn all about it, read her review here. Thanks, Susan!
