Alfred Alfred's Basic Piano Course Lesson Book 1A

This easy step-by-step method emphasizes correct playing habits and note reading through interval recognition. Lesson Book Level 1A begins by teaching basic keyboard topography and fluent recognition of white key names in relation to black keys. It focuses on simple rhythms and prepares students for intervallic reading with entertaining songs that focus on "same," "stepping up" and "stepping down." It then introduces lines and space notes in treble and bass clefs, melodic and harmonic intervals of 2nds, 3rds, 4ths and 5ths, and graduates to reading on the grand staff. It also introduces the flat and sharp signs. This course is most effective when used under the direction of a piano teacher or experienced musician. Songs Include: Balloons * Batter Up! * The Donkey * A Friend Like You * Hand-Bells * A Happy Song * Horse Sense * Indian Song * It’s Halloween! * Jingle Bells! * Jolly Old Saint Nicholas * July the Fourth! * Just a Second! * Love Somebody * Merrily We Roll Along O’er the Deep Blue Sea * Mexican Hat Dance * My Clever Pup * My Fifth * My Robot * Old MacDonald * Old Uncle Bill * Play a Fourth * Raindrops * Rain, Rain! * Rockets * Rockin’ Tune * Rock Song * Sailing * Sea Divers * See-Saws * Skating * Who’s on Third? * Willie and Tillie * Wishing Well * The Zoo

Great Beginner Course

By Laurie Uribe from Alpharetta, GA on 2/15/2011 11:03:06 PM

My almost 7-yr old son has started with this lesson book and is picking it up very quickly. This series is just challenging enough for him but at the same time not babyish. I am very impressed with the Alfred series and how it really teaches all aspects of piano, including theory, playing, etc.

Just the right mix - not too easy, not too hard with great illustrations

By Amir Khan from Dallas, TX on 2/17/2011 12:36:23 PM

I am an experienced piano teacher and I've used this book for beginner piano students for many years. I found this is an excellent beginner book for ages 5-10 years. The first half of the book is perfectly designed for younger beginners while the second half is challenging enough for a 10 year old. The prints are large and has the right amount of theory and technique for young beginners. As quite a few of my students are young children, a important aspect of this book are the illustrations. The cartoons on each lesson page have some funny element and musically related to the lesson. I often find having an engaging conversation about these cartoons and find kids love it. All my students who finish this book (1A) are ready to begin any level 1 book. Highly recommended!
