Alfred's Basic Prep Course, Lesson Book A is specifically designed for beginners who are five years old and up. Through the use of appealing music and attractive illustrations, it is no wonder that Lesson Book A is the most widely used young beginner's piano book now available. This course takes into consideration the normal attention span, as well as the small-sized hands of the young beginner. Shortly after beginning, the young student will be able to play "Merrily We Roll Along." A companion CD is included. The complete Prep Course consists of six books (Levels A through F). This course is most effective when used under the direction of a piano teacher or experienced musician.
This course was created in order to fulfil the desire of many adults to learn the Piano, but without the immaturity that comes as a standard with so many other beginning Piano courses around. Everything is clearly laid out and ordered in a logical fashion, while the essential information for any musician is set out from the beginning. Without being condescending, the Adult Piano Course allows you to move at your own pace, with the perfect mix of theoretical knowledge and enjoyable practical application.
For a great Piano tutor series that doesn't patronise or go too slowly, then the Michael Aaron Adult Piano Course is the perfect way to get into this brilliant instrument. Book 1 will set you well on your first step towards becoming a fully-fledged pianist.
