  • October 01, 2014 Almost a do-it-yourself book

    I was glad to see how Cynthia Pace has incorporated her father's "comprehensive musicianship" in her own work. I've looked at new/revised editions of his adult beginner books, to get up to date. This one sets out his concepts clearly with good musical illustrations, covers basic theory...

    started using it and my students are enjoying it.

  • June 11, 2007 Teachable Multikey for Adults

    I was delighted to review this book and to use it for my first adult. This is a highly teachable introduction for adult piano students. The Pace is more gradual than the two adult programs by Robert Pace. This one is highly accessible to a wide range of beginners. The...

    Multikey approach is still there, with scales, pieces, chords, and improvisation provided in all keys. I followed up this book with Alfred's Play Piano Now book 2 and continued on with Alfred Adult levels 2 and 3. It provided a very smooth and complete learning progression that led the student to early advanced music.
