    Adult Beginner
    Difficulty Level:
  • May 11, 2022 Slowly increasing difficulty

    I was pleased to learn these pieces as I'm self taught, taking up piano during the pandemic. Follow the order of difficulty, listed after the table of contents, not the page order in which they are printed. The increase in difficulty was slower than my progress (from method books...

    ), so by the end of the sequence I was just whizzing through them: they didn't challenge me anymore. That said I found this a good supplement.

  • May 01, 2011 Masterworks Classics (Level 1-2)

    I have used this series of books for many years and it has never failed to spark the interest of even the most intractable student! Even those who battle at practice time will love being able to play an actual 'classical' piece. I work primarily with the Alfred's or...

    Noona methods and from book 1 of Noona or Level 1B of Alfred's, (Basic or Premier) the youngest of students can begin these lovely pieces. I also use the Technical Studies books and the Practice & Performance books with these. Even the students who kick and scream at technic, will do what it takes to play these pieces. They LOVE them, and as a teacher of 35+ years, I love hearing my students get excited about the wonderful solid music in these books! Thanks, Alfred's Publications! You never fail us!

    Chester B.
  • August 28, 2008 Best Repertoire Book To Follow Alfred's Adult Course

    I feel the things that are missing in the Alfred's Adult Course Books are covered splendidly by Jane Magrath. Alfred's concentrates on hand positions without giving standard piano repertoire. I use the Alfred Adult Piano method to teach, so that should speak for itself.

  • November 28, 2007 Great Book!

    I've got an adult in this book. She hasn't used the accompanying CD yet, but, it has small pieces that are just right for a beginner studying the Classics. Thumbs up!
