Play Piano Now! is for busy adults whose practice time is limited, and for adults without previous musical training. It is a slower-paced method that uses the same conceptual core of our original Adult Piano Course, but with several very important added features: more gradual introduction of music fundamentals, more pages of reinforcement and a greater emphasis on sight-reading exercises, one of the most important skills needed to ensure long-term enjoyment of the piano. Includes specially marked written exercises that can be completed away from the keyboard. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance.

    this method progresses pretty slowly. It is for someone who learns slowly. It is good.

    This is a really fine adult piano method. It is realistically paced with plenty of reinforcement work, enabling any adult to be successful with it. After completing volumes 1 and 2 of this series, the student is ready for level 2 of the Alfred regular Adult series.
