    I have been teaching from the Alfred series for over 10 years and was very surprised to order this "value pack" and find that it's substantially different than the other Alfred books. I am only half way through with my student, but I am finding that it has completely...

    departing from teaching "positions" (i.e. "C position, etc.) and immediately has their hands all over the keyboard from the first lesson. I have seen the struggles of students when they have to start straying from the basic positions, so I can appreciate what they are trying to do, but I also am not yet sold that it is the best way to inspire confidence in the young beginner. Time will tell if this is a good change, but as you purchase this, keep in mind that this is a different system than what the other 1A book provides, and I'm not sure if this is going to completely replace it or be a different option for the new beginner.
