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.

There is some overlap right at the beginning of that volume, but 80% of the material will be new. This book does blend some of the ideas from the new Alfred Premier series as well. Most teachers will find this series to be a welcome addition to the pool of piano methods
