    Difficulty Level:
  • May 16, 2015 This book needs supplementary material

    As a piano teacher I think this book has too much emphasis on chords and moves unrealistically fast. However, it is by far the most popular adult piano method with adults. They rave about it. If you've bought this book and struggled give Hal Leonard Adult Method a go...

    . It moves at a friendlier pace and builds up the technique in the left hand as well, instead of the left hand only playing chords in every piece. If you'd like to compare the two here is a youtube playlist I have made of all of the pieces from Alfred adult all-in-one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRe3dlAzLRw&list=PLeW-cELRAmSl9fQyFwa9BIpeSHzlxuSYM (skip through and listen to every 5th video or something to get an idea) And this is Hal Leonard Adult: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzWz5gsY-Lo&list=PLeW-cELRAmSnRzMEVP4GG_J8LanEi79qS

  • January 13, 2015 Even I can play

    Alfred's Adult All-in-one Course- Level 1 book has the right combination of theory, technique, and practice. As an adult student, first time playing, I find the lessons easy to remember and appropriately reinforced. I no longer find myself skipping sections because I find the material boring or...

    too challenging. Additionally, the transitions from one lesson to another makes sense and builds upon the previous lessons. I would recommend this book to first time adult players.

    Difficulty Level:
  • November 29, 2012 Alfred's Adult all in one course level 1

    This is a fabulous. I could read treble clef already, so that helped. The book is really well set out, very organised in a progressive set out. the content is also interesting to play, gradually becoming more challenging. I have really enjoyed teaching myself piano from this book.

  • September 25, 2012 Perfect

    I had not used the All-in-One Course before, but decided it might be what my new high school music student needed to refresh what he had already learned and progress at an adult level. It is absolutely perfect for him. He is working diligently in this book, is...

    thrilled to be learning theory and technique in the all-in-one book and looks forward to the performance pieces in Book 2. A perfect find for my student.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 17, 2012 Excellent

    I have used Alfred Basics Theory, Tehcnic and Lesson courses for years, with much success. I wondered if this all-in-one course would be appropriate for a 14 year old who had some music reading background, playing clarinet in his junior high school band. It's perfect. Moves at...

    just the right pace. The included theory pages give just enough practice learning new concepts, for each weekly private lesson. It is comprehensive in teaching reading of bass & treble clefs, and builds - precept upon precept, steadily. Great all in one course.
