DD,11, would love to learn. She's had trumpet lessons for a couple of years and is doing well, but we really can't stretch to piano lessons too.

She says she'll teach herself, I'm a (lapsed) grade 5 and could loiter to give advice. I can't actually give her "lessons", as such. If you were to witness us doing maths homework together you'd see why grin

I don't suppose it has to be teach-yourself, actually. Can anyone suggest some beginners pieces?

bump for the evening crowd?

We use Chester's Easiest Piano Course by Carol Barratt and Fanny Waterman's Me and my piano, and the Suzuki book. But DC are younger. Don't know if an 11yo will like them.

I've done well with the Alan Haughton books. He has a beginner teenage series, too.

The Pauline Hall books are good for learning in a systematic way....
