Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for learning piano theory for beginners. I flew through it considering I've already played a bit and just needed a review. Try to buy it new if you can, as cleaning out another person's old notes and answers is a real pain.

I also definitely recommend this for adults (as the title says) because it cuts out all the little-Bo-Peep type stuff that are in the basic beginners books I've come across.

I love all of Alfred's Basic Adult Piano courses. I will always purchase his Adult courses. I find his courses are the best self-help adult piano teaching and I have tried many others that was a waste of my money.

A little more basic than I was looking for, but well written. I would recommend it for an adult with very little exposure to music theory.

At 70+ I started taking piano lessons and ordered Levels One, Two and Three of the Piano Theory books. I also ordered Levels One, Two and Three of the Adult All In One Course books. I especially like the theory portions of the books because I leave the books in my car so that they are always available. While I am waiting to pick up the grandchildren from school I do the theory exercises. The Theory books repeat a lot of what's in the Adult All In One Course Books. However the Theory books are left in my car and a write all my notes in them. The books have really helped me to advance in my lessons at a faster pace.

This is a nice theory book. A lot to learn from it. I do recommend this book for a beginner to follow with the beginners music simpler books.
