Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course Lesson Book, Bk 1: Book & DVD (Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course) by Willard A. Palmer
Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course Lesson Book, Bk 1: Book & DVD (Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course)

meghues, September 1, 2011

I use this series a lot with adult piano students. It is sensibly systematic and progresses in a moderate fashion. Other series move faster or slower, this one is right in the middle. The music isn't that great in the beginning, but it allows the students to overcome some coordination issues by re-visiting the problems again and again. It uses a chord approach and could be supplemented with a multi-key approach, like Bastien or Gillock.
It is probably not possible for someone to learn how to play in rhythm and with good coordination from this volume without a teacher. I don't know of any other that would work better-it is just not possible to both do the playing and monitor it at the same time.
