Piano - Beginner
Composed by Michael Aaron. Method/Instruction; Piano - Aaron Method. Adult Approach to Piano Study. Book. 64 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.11006).

Item Number: AP.11006
ISBN 0769235964.

The interest in piano and the desire to play, has increased tremendously in the past few years. Especially is this noticeable among adults who have either had some elementary piano instruction in their youth or have been denied this study for various reasons. This increased interest is partly due to the widespread influence of radio. Hearing music almost daily has become an integral part of our lives and it is this constant influence which has awakened a keen and natural desire to become an active participant. it is to the furtherance and stimulation of this natural desire that this course was planned. The adult approach has been kept constantly in mind, however not to the exclusion of certain basic principles which are necessary in order to make rapid and satisfactory progress. The logical and stepwise manner of progression in this course should prove of inestimable aid to both the student and teacher.

    Vernon, CT
    Difficulty Level:
  • November 07, 2009 Good Except for Finger Numbers

    Research shows that the most destructive thing in developing music reading is the presence of finger numbers for most of the notes. Unfortunately, this book has finger numbers for just about every note. While you think the student is learning well, they are just playing by number. If one is...

    willing to white out the numbers, however, this is a fairly good book for adults.

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 22, 2008 Great Start for Adult Piano Beginners

    I've worked with Michael Aaron children's books for over 30 years. This is the first time I chose the adult version. I began a woman with the book two weeks ago, and she is progressing so rapidly that it's hard to believe--no music experience in the...

    past whatsoever. I'm thrilled with the orderly layout of the concepts and the musical pieces themselves.
