Description

Adult Piano Adventures® is a comprehensive course in reading, playing and listening to music, by Nancy and Randall Faber. It is a logical and effective approach to note-reading and the pace is refreshing and smooth, with the language and presentation more suited to adults and late beginners. Book one gives you the basic skills required to play hundreds of melodies by the completion of this book and Book Two continues with a broader repertoire and special instruction in harmony and chord accompaniments.

All-In-One Lesson Book 1 presents the fundamentals of music notation, chord playing and musical form all through engaging music chosen specifically for adults. Included are musical gems such as Over The Rainbow, Fiddler on The Roof, Amazing Grace, Don’t Cry For Me Argentina and Lean On Me and you will find world-famous classic and popular melodies, as well as folk songs from around the world, jazz and blues favourites and beloved spirituals.

This book includes lessons, technique and theory all in one complete volume for ease of use. Learn to play chords and gain an understanding of basic harmony while developing reading skills and learning terrific melodies which inspire practice.

Customer Reviews


Rating Review
Customer Rating Was not impressed with this book. Covered the basic mechanics of playing piano OK but I found its approach to teaching the following things rather odd:

* Sight reading: introduced an odd staveless way to being with.
* Structure: Looked like they did not bother with formatting, separating sections to make it more understandable, very sharp but not in a good way.

* Music theory: Odd way of taking simple songs making "pentascales" then making the C major scale from it, was just weird, also approached chords in an odd way for me. Delved straight into terms like "dominant" without really explaining them.

Given its sharpness this book may be useful when used with a someone who knows there stuff but for a self teaching book I would not recommend it.
