By Loretta M. Each section covers a piano lesson, musical theory topic, and technical information about the elements of music and the piano itself. This is the most highly recommended adult piano book on the market right now! The workbook is designed so that the greenest of beginners can create music right from the very start of their studies. Simple instructions and illustrations, as well as an accompanying CD, make the first step toward becoming a real piano player as easy as possible.
Simple instructions and illustrations, as well as an accompanying CD, make the first step toward becoming a real piano player as easy as possible. This book makes at-home individual practice fun! Thompson introduces each note in his book one at a time and reinforces his lessons with colorful illustrations and characters. This lesson book, complete with writing and reading assignments, is a great supplemental resource when working with a professional teacher one-on-one.
Not this one! The Ultimate Beginner Series uses text and a DVD accompaniment to jump right into the world of piano playing and teach you about chords, arpeggios, playing with both hands, and even playing music by ear.
This is a workbook for an inspired virtuoso in waiting!
Faber Music Piano Adventures The Piano Adventures book takes a different approach to teaching beginners to learn how to play the piano. Students using this guide are encouraged to experiment with the piano pedals in order to properly understand their function.
In addition to the text, the Bastien book includes a CD accompaniment to the lessons. Note grouping is also taught. Where I think Music Tree sticks out is the lyrics that are added under each note. Students can work on their ear training this way and sing through the piece while also playing.
Here are some sample pages of Music Tree to get an idea of how it all works. What I was missing though was clear right away. This book is repertoire heavy and has a ton of fun pieces in it; not just a huge manuscript of really difficult Classical techniques. Thompson does have another method book out JT Easiest Piano Course which is much better for the complete beginner.
The illustrations seem to perfectly capture the essence of the work at hand. Musically the right-han plays an eighth note passage followed by the left hand; mimicking tag essentially. There is also plenty of theory sprinkled throughout the book that calls on students to draw stems on notes and place note names for example. Overall the method is well organized and a perfect starter book. Book 1 is the perfect starting point and actually encourages creativity in playing from the start.
The CD alone is enough to challenge a beginner student to be their best and to practice.
I find this book to really good for a student who wants to be able to move ahead and grow without having a teacher at their side each step of the way. Hal Leonard even sprinkles elements of improvisation and theory training throughout each level of the method.
Musical terms and symbols are thoroughly explained in each level too. This book is more of an exercise book than anything, and it strives to be that way too. The pieces are really short and tons of fun to play. If you want a student to get some quick wins early on in their piano journey then this is definitely the book to go with. This is a great book to test out some sight reading and memory based practices with.
For the development of technique, this might be the closest thing to Hanon on the market. The goal of the method is to get students to play effectively in all 12 keys, develop basic technique and theory.
Level 1 focuses on the first 3 keys while the other 9 are taught throughout the other 4 levels of the method. The beginning of the book focuses on C position and then gradually works into recognizing tonic and dominant. Shortly after various articulations like staccato and musical form are introduced.
By the end of the first method book, students will be able to play in multiple octaves and even experiment with various musical styles outside of Classical.
There is also a Primer level of this book which complete beginners with no experience might want to use. This book has become a staple for pianists both beginner and professional. This is where some of the most basic foundations of piano playing can be developed.
This is mostly a technique book, but with some creativity can be turned into much more. The downside with the Hanon book is that there are no cute animations or nurturing words in it. The results students can gain from Hanon are lifelong though.
