Alfred's Basic Piano Library provides a perfect fit for any student.

Alfred's Basic Piano Library is the most flexible of any piano method, allowing the teacher to personally design a curriculum for specific age groups and to meet the needs of each individual student. All of the beginning series are interchangeable at several levels; if a student demonstrates that he or she is ready to study at a faster pace, or perhaps requires a slower pace with more reinforcement, you may switch courses at convenient junctures in the method without missing any important musical concepts!

Sample Lesson Book

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 intervocalic 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.
