Here is a complete repertoire and textbook for the older or adult beginner. Starting with material appropriate for the first lesson, it moves rapidly through discoveries, music and activities equivalent to The Music Tree and Levels 1 and 2. On completing the book, the student is ready for Level 3 of the Clark Library. The book provides quantities of music, all of it selected or composed to appeal to the older student -- Studies (introducing each of 65 new subjects), Repertoire (155 solos and duets), Accompanying and Transposing (62 melodies to accompany and to transpose to all major and minor keys), Sight Reading (107 one-line pieces that review each of the new discoveries and teach sight reading skills). In addition, the 22 units in 208 pages include: Technical Exercises, Rhythm Exercises, Written Work and Improvising. A Glossary at the end defines all new signs and terms introduced throughout the book.

  • January 27, 2014 Excellent course

    I've used this course for years. It is certainly one of the best out there. It is NOT, however, designed for self-instruction, nor is it a method for teachers who do not familiar with interval-based instruction. I've had no issues with teaching the staff or locating...

    notes. It is very graded. After about half-way through the book I start introducing additional material. At that point I stick with the "core" material in the book and start transitioning from the repertoire into other level-appropriate material.

  • October 06, 2009 Nothing familiar, difficult to follow.

    As a full-time piano instructor, I have found it difficult to use adult methods for teaching adult students. In my experience, they start out at a nice, slow pace and then after six months, start to race ahead at a pace unlikely for adults to keep. This year was...

    the first year I tried "Keyboard Musician for the Adult Beginner" and was so excited to try something new. Unfortunately, I have given up on these books and will be sending them back immediately for a refund. Nothing initially is familiar and there is no formal introduction to staff notation, just "guide notes", which certainly doesn't fit the bill for true beginners.
