"This video is worthless for purposes of teaching you how to play the piano. It does not teach you how to read music. It does not teach you the 7 notes of the keyboard. It does not show you how to play any tunes. What does it do? It shows you how to play notes sequentially up and down the keyboard (as if you need a video to show you how to do that), and refers to the keys by numbers; whereas the rest of the world refers to the keys of a piano by the letters A to G. Very poorly conceived approach."
Poor dvd quality

"The information contained in this is quite useful if you wish to learn imrovisation yechniques. True it doesn't teach you chords, keys or scales but no one getting this wants to learn all that anyway. ( Plus learning chords is easy anyway.) The problem I have is with the dvd itself. The quality is somewhat poor and it seems that they just copied directly from the vcr tape, which I already had. There are no chapters or scene selections so you have to fast forward and reverse to what you want to see just like a vcr tape. Granted you can "mark" the spots but only if you plan on leaving the dvd in the player. That is my only complaint since I had hoped I could just select a section and go directly to it to review. As this can't be done the dvd is no better than a vcr tape."
Creative Stress Free Beginning Piano

"Novice piano players will be impressed and motivated by Patty Carlson's introduction to playing the piano. The video DVD helped to clarify fingering techniques based upon melodious chord structures. The audio CD enables the pianist to play and replay the instructions that require review. This type of instruction will help to define if the piano is an instrument suitable to your talents."
