Format: Plastic Comb
Beautiful book, spiral bound, book is of good physical size, good size font so no eye strain, approach to the material covered is straightforward, concise and one step at a time. Price can't be beat. Bought the entire series and am very satisfied of my purchase. Also Amazon has great delivery service.

So Glad I Found This Series May 22 2008
By Susan K. Schoonover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
My efforts to reteach myself to play the piano had kind of stalled but ALFRED'S BASIC ADULT PIANO COURSE has put me back in gear. I kind of dithered between starting with level 2 or level 3 and though the first few pieces in level 2 were very easy for me I soon found I really did need the review offered in level 2 and a quick scan of level 3 shows me I would have soon become frustrated with it without going through this book first. A tuneful selection of folk, jazz ragtime and classical music make up most of the coursework and there is a lot of emphasis on chords and fingering - skills I missed in my piano lesson days of long ago. The book is bound with a sturdy plastic "comb" good for me as I am notoriously hard on piano music. There are pen and paper exercises to review notes and chords as well as lots of beautiful music pieces. If you are faithful in practicing this series will teach you a great deal about the piano and keep you motivated to continue.

Pretty Good, 3 1/2 Stars Sept. 19 2008
By Slim Pickens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
The book is fine, although it has a few too many cheesy songs like "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." The CD that comes with it is the main reason for the star deductions. I thought it would be someone simply playing the piano as a demonstration on how to play the music with perfection. Instead, it is synthesized music done on some kind of digital keyboard and it has other synthesized instruments and percussion. It's not enjoyable to listen to and not particularly instructive either. Unless you need the CD to help you hear the basic melodies of the songs contained in this book, I would buy the non-CD version.

Great teaching techniques, silly music March 22 2010
By David T. Spindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
I just started this book after finishing book 1. I have no complaints with the teaching techniques in either book. I found they help me as an adult to re-learn quickly and easily. However the selection of music is so silly that I'm losing interest. I wish the authors had chosen classical music. If they had, I would gladly continue using Alfred's books. As I can only take so much of "Theme from Gilligan's Island" and "Mexican Hat Dance" however..I'll be looking to move to another book.

Entertaining, solid foundational book May 25 2011
By littlespender - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
I've been using these books for years, and I try other lines and always come back to the Alfred All-in-Ones for adults. The songs are pretty good, nothing too odd or boring, decent foundation to build upon, though I always add in chords/scales separately because I don't feel they do enough. It moves a pretty fast pace, though, so I wouldn't start someone who had never touched a piano in this book. I'd chose an even simpler beginner book and then go on to this one. I've tried Bastien's adult line and Piano Adventure's adult line, and the songs nor the order they teach things in is as good.

Really enjoyed this course Aug. 16 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
I'm most of the way through this piano course and found it very well done! I'm learning on my own and the progression is perfect - just enough to learn and just enough practice pieces to start nailing down what they've taught. Only thing I haven't enjoyed yet is the blues/jazz pieces pp 107-108 - wish I had the cassettes to hear how these pieces should sound. Not exactly wonderful the way I'm interpreting them...

Also great to get the theory, understand how a key and chords fit together - then you can pick out any I IV V chord progression, no matter the key. Very cool
