This book is exactly what I have been hoping to find. I took piano lessons when I was young, but I remember very little. Now, at 41, I wanted to teach myself to play again on the piano I just bought on ebay for $100. I have tried several other books, but they have been a bit too difficult or only had a couple songs I liked. This book is very easy and manageable for someone like me who barely knows what she is doing! I am able to teach myself and create pleasing music. I just can't stop playing now, always eager to learn the next song. The praise music is just what we sing in church, it is emotional and uplifting, and it sounds more complex than it really is. I am delighted that I found this book!
