More About the Author

Morty Manus is president of Alfred Music Publishing Co., Inc. When Morty joined the company, he had recently received a business degree from City College of New York. As a clarinetist and pianist, he saw the need for quality music education publications. Drawing upon his musical experiences, Morty oversaw the development of instructional publications for accordion, guitar, piano, and drums; performance music for band, orchestra, chorus, and music theory.

Morty is the author and editor of numerous Alfred titles, including Alfred's Basic Guitar Course, Alfred's Basic Piano Library, Alfred's Adult Piano Course, and Essentials of Music Theory. In 2008, he received an honorary doctorate degree in music from the VanderCook College of Music in Chicago for "having made a significant contribution to the music education profession as evidenced by his outstanding creative achievements, scholarship and leadership."

Morty met his wife Iris when she was working for Alfred on Saturdays. Iris has worked on a full-time basis for Alfred since the late 1960s, and maintains the position of executive producer.

If you have learned or studied some music theory then this book is OK. If you haven't you might get lost in the theory as the book "presumes" that you know some theory. The lesson plans are good and I believe that by the time you get all the way through the book you would know how to play keyboard. I am taking lessons from a piano teacher as well as using this book, and I have some music theory training. If theory is completely new to you then I would suggest a keyboard book in the "For Dummies" line; or find someone who can explain basic theory to you. It does help to have some theory knowledge as it helps with rhythm & tempo in your playing.

When I looked in this book with it's preview of contents I thought it would be a great choice instead of a piano book. This book doesn't go far enough explaining the left hand and how to use both hands at once. It's a little confusing. I will use the book for playing the songs in it. I suggest John Thompson's courses. It's what I learned from from fifty years ago. Don't waste your money on this one.

Bought this for my boyfriend and he likes it.

Only drawback is his keyboard and the keyboard referenced in the book are different, and the product info doesn't tell you what kind of keyboard is in the book.

Do your research!

This books starts good for very beginners. However, in about 3 lessons it does not give an explanation of what it shows on the pictures. For people with some music playing background it might work, but for very beginners it does not at all. I expected this book to help me to learn at list basic playing the piano, but it did not.

Excellent Book for Beginners! It's like having a teacher right there beside me. I have never played a keyboard before, and this book is helping me learn to play the songs in such a way that is not overwhelming or frustrating. It teaches you one step at a time and makes it easy to understand.

Takes programmed steps to digest content, but those really interested in getting the best out of this manual by reading and following the instructions will benefit in the long run. Some details may not apply to your instrument.
