In My Opinion: The Best Piano Books for Beginners
If you're only going to get one book, this is the one to get. The Lesson Book has some of the best songs as well as instructions on posture, hand position, and basic theory.
I prefer the Gold Star Performance to the regular Performance Book because I like the songs in this one better. It goes at a quicker pace but that is easily adjusted by your teacher.
This book has lot of good drills for working on the correct hand position, finger independence drills, moving from one hand position to the next, etc.
This book does a great job at introducing theory in a fun way. They also order the concepts very well so that nothing is confusing or difficult.
