If you want to learn how to play the piano, you must use Alfred's Adult Piano Course. I have been playing the piano for about 5 years and have used both this course and the Bastien series to teach myself how to play. I can honestly say that I can play, talk, and theorize about music as well as anyone...All because of these books and this course. A friend of mine attended the NY School Of Music and plays the trumpet professionally. I think I know just as much as he does. If you are serious about learning the piano and about music reading and theory, and are motivated enough to put a little extra effort......BUY THIS COURSE. It's approach is geared towards the adult learner, covers every aspect of music and thoery (that is every key, their minors, chords, chord building, etc.). With each step you learn new songs that increase in intensity and difficulty as you progress. However, the difficulty between stages is seldom felt by the student. When you reach level 3 - you play classics by the best. Bach, Pachelbel, Beethoven, etc. You will be amazed at how easy it is to learn...........and bear in mind, I am just an owner of a steel fabrication plant with no prior music knowledge or experience or training. Good luck to anyone who purchases this course. It is the very best. Thanks.

Format: Paperback
I returned to the piano after 40 years and needed something gentle to ease my re-entry. Both levels One and Two of this book were extremely helpful. I did each chapter two or three times and found something "returning" to me as I went along. I went through the entire book in just one day (albeit a long day) and had a tremendous sense of satisfaction at making music again. This is not a beginners book, nor is it for perfectionists and didactic piano teachers. But if you used to play the piano and loved it (but dropped out from weariness with the torture treatment) this is the book for you. Play for yourself, for the love of music, and for fun. On to Level Three!

This is a wonderful book for adult students. I have taken piano lessons on and off for nearly 40 years. Because every teacher seems to use different material, I've been exposed to most of the different teaching series. Alfred's series has songs that are familiar, interesting, and varied, and the next song was always at just the right level. I felt a terrific sense of accomplishment when I finished the book.

I took piano lessions years ago {now 64} i wished to start back so i bought a keyboard. Looking at Amazon for some lession books I came across these three volumes by Alfreds and decided to buy. Very glad I did. If you stick with it and practice, you will do well and teach yourself how to play some good music. My wife got interested and now she is playing. You will love the progress of the lessions and will learn much. One more thing these lessions are for real, not the right-hand, one-hand like some, these books {three} are for the serious person who wants to learn music and play well. You won't go wrong and you CAN do it all by yourself. Michael Beck florence, Alabama.

This version of Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course is very good, but I think that the Adult All-In-One Course: Lesson-Theory-Technic level 2 would be a better, more up-to-date choice.

I am a piano teacher. I recommend this book to adults who had learned how to play the piano but haven't played for a while.
My students catch up quickly and easily with this book and they like it. This book covers theory, piano techniques and musical terms enough
and reminds you those skills and musical language as pages go by.
This book may not be easy to follow for those whom never played the piano before.

My wife simply loves this book and uses it all the time for her piano practice. She said it is the best one she has used. It was recommended by her instructor.
