    I have used Alfred's prep and basic piano course for about 30 years. In my opinion, the level D book gets too difficult, too quickly, so I switch to a different curriculum for 3 book, and then come back to level 2 of Alfred.

    I have used many methods in my 58 years of teaching piano and I find Alfred's Basic Piano Course Books the favorite of many students. ... so I will always try to buy Alfred's books.

  • October 16, 2010 The Main Cirriculum of my Piano Studio

    I've been teaching piano for over 10 years. The last four years I've been using "Alfred's Basic Piano Course" as the main curriculum of my studio and I've been very pleased. I've had experience with Bastien and Faber as well, but Alfred continues to be...

    my favorite. I like the simple, uncluttered lay-out of the pages and the pictures are entertaining but not dominating. Each new piece requires more from the student and challenges them towards musical growth, but doesn't move along so quickly as to overwhelm them. I actually remember using a few of these books back when I was a little girl taking piano lessons. Some of my favorite pieces back then were from this curriculum. I would recommend this to any teacher or student of the piano.

  • April 07, 2009 It's great!

    I went through these Alfred books and now I am teaching from the books. I love them! It is easy for the teacher to follow and it is well rounded.

  • April 03, 2009 Makes piano fun!

    We have used both the Bastien and Alfred methods. This year, my daughter begged her piano teacher to let her use the Alfred books. She agreed, and my daughter loves taking piano lessons again. She likes the songs that she's learning so much that I rarely have to remind...

    her to practice.
