Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, the most popular and successful piano course ever written, has just been given a new dimension. Along with the Lesson pages that teach the concepts and fundamentals of music, Theory and Technic pages have been added. Now, for the first time within one book, an adult beginner can learn all that is needed to perform successfully.
Lesson pages are designed to provide a basic course of instruction that contains all the concepts and fundamentals needed to perform.
Theory pages give beginners an added understanding of music not possible in any other way. Every concept and principle introduced in the Lesson pages is reinforced. Additional drills in note recognition make this a valuable aid in developing reading skills. Important tips are presented that make learning chord progressions easier.
Technic pages offer suggestions for the proper care of your hands. Most adult beginners feel awkward at the keyboard because of stiffness in their fingers, hands and wrists. They have trouble with coordination, and they feel they could play much better if the muscular agility and flexibility of their hands could somehow be made to keep pace with their comprehension.
At the completion of this course, the student will have learned to play some of the most popular songs ever written while gaining a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of music.
Special bonus! Level 1 now includes great arrangements of Over the Rainbow, At Last, Singin' in the Rain, Laura, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, The Ballad of Gilligan's Isle, and Chattanooga Choo Choo.
