Alfred's Basic Adult All-in-One Course is designed for use with an instructor for the beginning student looking for a truly complete piano course. It is a greatly expanded version of Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course that will include lesson, theory, technic and additional repertoire in a convenient, "all-in-one" format. This comprehensive course adds such features as isometric hand exercises, finger strengthening drills, and written assignments that reinforce each lesson's concepts. There is a smooth, logical progression between each lesson, a thorough explanation of chord theory and playing styles, and outstanding extra songs, including folk, classical, and contemporary selections. At the completion of this course, the student will have learned to play some of the most popular music ever written and will have gained a good understanding of basic musical concepts and styles. The CD has accompaniments to support the student's playing of the exercises and songs found in the Level 1 book.

Our customer reviews

This was well put together, Its challenging being a first times piano player and they have broken down very easily and simply. Just remember that you can't learn piano over night! You must take is slowly and easily, This book at an easy going pace is 4-6 months depending how badly you want to learn, you absorb the information and then practice the new technique. What more can you ask for? They are WELL worth the price you cannot go wrong at all. You want a value to your money this is it!show more
