Book Description

March 1 2006 Educational Piano Library (Book 1)
(Educational Piano Library). The Hal Leonard Student Piano Library's Adult Piano Method takes an all-in-one approach by combining lessons, solos, technique, and theory into a single volume. The authors have taken a logical step-by-step approach, always keeping the adult learning process in mind. The book is well-paced, moving quickly but comfortably through new concepts and material. Beginning adult students will find this book challenging enough to be interesting, yet easy enough to experience a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Richly orchestrated accompaniments are included on the two MIDI-enhanced CDs providing both a practice and performance tempo for each track. Companion supplementary books including Popular Hits, Popular Favorites, Christmas Favorites, and Traditional Hymns are also available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weird... Dec 13 2012
By Annie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't like the "no-music-staff" method that's used at first... A lot of very good music sheets to practice (if you previously learned somewhere else), but this learning method is akward and dull in my opinion...

Génial, intelligent, actuel et très musical. Enfin une approche différente qui commence par le "son" et le rythme, avec des arrangements magnifiques. Je suis sous le charme !

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete and accessible... April 22 2006
By Arena Connery - Published on Amazon.com
Many children's methods may not appeal to the adult learner. Hal Leonard's Adult Piano Method takes all the core concepts of it's student method books and presents them at a more 'graduated' pace. This book combines theory, technique, and solos. The CDs have both practice and performance tempos for each accompaniment track. The accompaniments are also written at the bottom of each piece in the book.

This book can be used with a teacher or on your own. Having four authors keeps the material fresh and varied. Also important is the inclusion of improv exercises. And if you like this book, there are supplementary items like 'Popular Hits' and 'Christmas Favorites.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Hal Leonard Student Piano Adult Piano Method - Book 1 June 11 2007
By Angelia A. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good info. Wish it had more practice pages / songs, per section. Also would be nice to explicitly let student know how many beats to expect before each song begins, so student can always start with the CD. Otherwise, it's a very good system!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good Method Book! Jan. 15 2013
By starlyric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a piano teacher, and this is my favorite adult piano method book, because the student/teacher duets are well composed and the accompaniment CD, though not worthy of a listen on its own, features some professional musicians and isn't all artificial instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great learning book for adults April 23 2009
By Travo - Published on Amazon.com
As a grown up, I found this a great book to learn piano. Having learnt the fundamentals of reading music as a kid this helped me refresh my music reading skills, and learn piano fingering in a really thoughtful and straight-forward way. The exercises and music were familiar without being trite and twee. I also especially appreciated the diversity of genre.
