Has anyone been using this? Any opinions on this?

Background: I just found this browsing through my sheet music collection. Some time ago, I thought that this is too dull and tedious and probably of limited use anyway, but now I'm having second thoughts and undecided if I should give it a second try. I'm a beginner (2 years, self-taught).

Thanks for your feedback.

"This" is the title of the thread, see also here:

I notice it says "Always practice each exercises with a variety of touches and dynamics" As a self learner do you know what different touches mean?

Really I don't see anything new there (Amazon only allowed me to see one page without ordering something), and I can't help thinking that anyone would do much better learning music, even someone learning without a teacher.

Thanks. These were more or less my original thoughts, except perhaps for the part starting with "even ..." \:\)

By the way,you should be able to see more than just one page (the "surprise me" link), but it's not really necessary because they are all like the first page.

Keyboardklutz: I think I'm fine (touch as in legato/staccato etc. touch).
