Description

The Second Edition of Alfred''s Group Piano for Adults Book 1, includes updates inspired by numerous recommendations from group piano teachers and students. This book includes a CD-ROM containing both Audio and General MIDI Files of the 500+ accompaniments included in the text, each with an interesting and engaging arrangement coupled with the piano part. Designed for collegiate non-keyboard music majors with little or no keyboard experience, the easy-to-use text contains 26 units, each intended to be covered in one week, thus fulfilling two semesters or three quarters of study. Theory, technique, sight-reading, repertoire, harmonization, improvisation, and ensemble activities are taught thoroughly and consistently throughout the text. The comb binding creates a lay-flat book that is perfect for study and performance. Book 1 is 360 pages.

Selected sight-reading examples from this book are available in the Piano Maestro app that''s downloadable at Piano Maestro. Learn more about JoyTunes, the maker of Piano Maestro at JoyTunes.

Great book!
Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2020
My brother needed the book for school, it was a tight squeeze to get the textbook so quick and I was nervous the book would come damaged-it came brand new basically. Loved it! Shipping was fast, book felt brand-new, and my brother loved it! Thanks!

Since it is a required text(in the college piano classes),and because of that way overpriced, I think at the very least publishers could have chosen a better quality covers - they are thin and perforated edges(where rings are inserted) start ripping apart after a about a month of daily usage. I had to make my own covers from thick carboard and glue original ones on top.
As far as book content goes, I think it is pretty good - nicely layed out topics, beautiful pieces to play. The only flaw would be(as our teacher pointed out), that it doesn''t include many pieces for the very beginning - she had to give her own handouts for those.
CD could be better - you get idea for the notes played, but pieces are played very dry - no musicality at all. And with some other instruments in the background which are disturbing to hear the piano part.

Update: I went to Kinkos and had custom covers made out of thick plastic sheets(they just had black color)- it cost just 10 dollars for two books - I should have had them made right away, this way real covers would have been nice and safe inside.

Love The Huge Textbook
Reviewed in the United States on January 21, 2019
This textbook is huge as well, however this textbook was required by my music professor and I''m glad that I got book cheaper than the bookstore at my campus. I like the binding of the platic comb. It seems like this book can last me a life time, if I take good care of it.... See more

Glad I purchased this book instead of renting
Reviewed in the United States on September 18, 2016
Glad I purchased this book instead of renting. We do a lot of the worksheets inside and it is so much easier to write in the book itself. Also its the same book I need for my Piano 2 class next semester so its a win win situation one book for two classes lol

Awesome lay out of lessons and activities mixed with the songs to slowly build up the difficulty of music you’re playing. The paper is good quality for writing notes and erasing them later while still keeping the sheet music clean. I had some experience with piano playing before using this book, but I would recommend it for any teen/adult who wants to start playing.

Reviewed in Canada on October 22, 2016
It took a bit longer than expected to arrive but it is a wonderful resource for those just leaning to play the piano. It is actually a textbook for my university course and it is surprisingly simple and easy to understand.
