I tasted almost all methods books with my students when I started my teacher’s practice here, because I love to do a research with something new for me. Last year I taught my beginners only with “Tales” and some Russian piano books and authors for beginners. It’s a big difference. If with previous method books my students were afraid to play The Russian School of Piano Playing by A. Nikolaev, now these books are number one for their repertoire and they LOVE to play from those books. Also Celebration Series, where pieces are almost impossible to play for students who grew on 5 fingers position with “Tales” piano skills improve faster, sound, tone quality is better, performance feeling is better too.
