2.0 out of 5 stars Not Exactly As Advertised May 31, 2011
By odie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a very beginner piano player and am currently using Level 2 for the advanced beginner so I thought this book would be perfect for where I am in my lessons. The songs in the book are melody only, no left hand involvement so I would have to say that it is more a level 1 for a very new beginner. I did keep the book however because it had one of my favorite hymns that I haven't been able to find in other books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Piano book for kids May 29, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do find it interesting that it never gives an age (youth, adult, young adult). This is definitely for a younger student in an "advanced" beginner stage, not a later beginner as some my think it being for an young adult or adult beginner. I also find it interesting that Level 2-3 is much lower skill level in this younger version that other books I have viewed.

With that in mind, it was fine for it's purpose, I just think that Alfred's needs to make it clearer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Piano Hymns Made Easy February 10, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This textbook is greater for adults wanting to revitalize their music playing. I enjoy the simplicity and I can add to the notes to get a richer sound. I am an older adult who had not taken lesson in over 10 years so this was a great way to learn old songs with a simple measure. I love this text and this author. He makes music playing so enjoyable. His texts are just right for adults.

My preteen girls use this curriculum with a piano teacher. They are doing great! Making quick progress as long as they practice daily. The piano teacher uses the curriculum verbatim, page for page.

This is a great book for those of us who play for our own pleasure, or for a small group where a professional level is not required. I love the hymns covered in the book.

I can already play the piano, but this book is showing me things I didn't know, and making me practice things I'm rough in. The condition of the book was very good.
