This is a great book, however, as a beginning piano teacher, I don't feel that it's accurate to call it "Big Note." I have experience with other musical pieces described as big note, and this one falls more under the category of "Easy Piano." The version that I also purchased that is rated "Easy Piano" has generally the same pieces, but they are slightly more advanced than Easy Piano (although not as far as intermediate and definitely not advanced). The version that is "Big Note" is more of a later beginner's book. Both books, though, make the pieces sound quite like the music in the movies, so students should be happy that they are playing the actual music, which is often a problem with "Big Note" pieces--they don't often sound enough like the real music.
I'm happy with my purchase, I just wouldn't expect an early beginner to enjoy that much challenge.
