  • April 19, 2011 Alfred's Adult All-in-One Course Level 1

    I am enjoying this book thoroughly. I had begun my studies with the Dozen A Day series with the late Edna-Mae Burnam and before I finished those I over stepped myself and went into the Schirmer's Library of musical classics for early Bach. Those pieces are not arranged...

    in order of difficulty and I was in trouble fairly quickly. My teacher suggested we start over and really learn the basics thoroughly with the Alfred's Adult All-in-One. I am about a third of the way through the first book and I really, really love the way it carefully progresses with theory and technique. I am going to stick with this complete series, all 3 volumes, before I use anything more advanced. The music selections are very satisfying and sound great during practice.

  • March 07, 2008 Worth Every Penny !

    I've always wanted to play the piano but never got round to it. Now at 52, I've just started with Alfred's Adult All-in-One Course - Level 1. This book is amazing. Everything is explained so well that I'm able to learn by myself without the...

    help of a teacher. The accompanying CD is of great help. It has been only a month but I've completed half the book and look forward to finishing it & then starting level 2 & 3.

  • February 09, 2008 Good Book/Poor CD

    I like working from this book. It's easy to understand and has a lot of great songs. However, the CD is of such poor quality that it's almost painful to listen to. The music is not recorded on a piano, but on what sounds like a toy keyboard...

    that is VERY tinny sounding. Plus, the background music is so distracting that I have to listen with only one side of my headphones. I got the book/CD combination so that I could hear what I was trying for - but I don't know if it will be of much help.

  • August 04, 2006 Excellent book for adult beginners.

    Excellent book to get for those who are interested in learning how to play the piano. I use to play the piano when I was 9. Dropped it. And now at 31, I have picked it up again. Alfred's adult all in one(bk/cd) is easy to work...

    with by yourself and at your own pace. The book keeps u interested as it works thru theory and different songs. The only down side is that it does not have the answers to the theory exercises, so you are not sure if you are getting it right.
