I enjoy playing the spiritual songs in this book.
Doris M. Richardson
All of my students enjoy playing them and even those who are not very far along in their piano studies can play some of them and it makes them feel so "grown up"!
Christy Mizell
Alfred's Basic Adult Sacred Piano Book: Level 1 is an excellent book for adult beginning piano students who love the old favorite hymns.

I bought this book as a level one adult piano student who wants to play sacred music (hymns). This book does not disappoint. It was structured to the Alfreds Basic Adult Piano Course Level One and follows that book exactly. Each song tells you where you need to be in the Basic Course Book in order to play the song. With this knowledge you can even try to challenge your ability by going a little further in the book than you are in the course, and then seeing where you stack up in your lesson.

The music in the book is very satisfying to play. The arrangements are simple but beautiful. Right away after only a few piano lessons you can play some of your favorite hymns. The songs are easy but not too easy and they sound very professional when you play them.

Highly recommended!

Although a senior adult, I'm just learning how to play piano. I've found this book quite enjoyable and easy. It's a nice compliment to the lessons in the Alfred's Basic Lesson Book.

Alfred's Basic Adult Sacred Piano Book: Level 1 is an excellent book for adult beginning piano students who love the old favorite hymns. The arrangements are easy for beginner but do not sound childish. The arrangements are simplistic yet beautiful.

I started taking piano lessons about a year ago and I'll be 75 in August. I always wanted to play and never had the opportunity. Alfred's arrangements are easy for me and when I play them they don't sound like I am such a beginner! Well done!

I'm a grandmother who decided one day that I wanted to learn to read notes and play the piano. I bought some basic instruction books for beginners and was amazed that it was not as hard as I thought it would be. After several months I could play two of the hymns in this book all the way through. There are still many that I haven't learned the skills yet to play, but I am working on them. I give it four stars because of the harder songs in the book, but actually they do give me something to set as a goal for later. I recommend this book for anyone who is learning to play piano.

The music is very easy to read and follow. I appreciate Hal Leonard for publishing these books as my level of playing ability is not like that of a concert pianist! I'm happy to be able to play many songs successfully at my level and love it!

I'm a 72 year old piano student who loves to sing hymns in church. This book contains some of my favorite hymns. It is so nice to play them at home. I'm so pleased with this book that I've ordered Level 2.
