I would buy this product again


well suited for my needs



Great for beginners!


I never had the opportunity to take piano lessons as a child, but I would long to be able to play. So as an adult I saved up enough money to purchase a good quality electric piano and begin taking lessons, and was lucky enough to come across the positive reviews for this book. I have used this book for 2 lessons with my piano teacher and I find it really easy to understand and follow. Though you could probably learn from it yourself, I recommend getting a piano teacher, it makes you way more motivated and it's nice to support an artist. I would have probably bought the deluxe version of this book if I had seen it first though, called 'Alfred's basic adult all in one'. It isn't much more expensive, and it combines a few of the accompanying books together.



Love it, great beginner resource


Great starting piano resource.



Steady progression keeping the momentum.


Very efficient starting book for adult learners. The pieces are interesting and well arranged, while the well-paced speed of learning keeps the momentum going.
