Adult Piano Course Complete

$22.95

This Premier “All-Inclusive” Adult Method is designed for the older beginner or as a refresher course for those who wish to resume their passion for playing music. Thoughtfully organized to progress at a steady pace while offering simple and concise lessons and includes an instructional performance recording.

The curriculum starts at the very beginning, so those without any experience will feel comfortable from the very first page, but since this course progresses at an adult pace, even those with some knowledge will still feel challenged and will not sense any undue repetition or prolonged remediation as assorted techniques become more familiar.

A good method should have the effect of challenging the student, but not frustrating them. The goal is to conclude each practice session with a feeling of satisfaction and enthusiastic anticipation of what lies ahead. We accomplish this by focusing on the practical aspects of mechanics, chords, and fingering using a thorough concise approach.

With additional sections focusing on pedaling technique, sight reading, and transposition, the adult or young adult student will feel right at home sitting down at the piano while playing and enjoying many popular and classical pieces in a wide variety of settings and will have the skills necessary to continue to pursue the passion to whatever level they choose. – Jonathon Robbins, Editor.
