Category Description for Alfred's All-in-One Course:

This course is equivalent to the first books of the Basic Course. The difference is that these five sequential books hold not only the pages from the lesson books, but also selected pages from the theory, recital, and fun solo supplemental books. If you want the extras, you can use this series to have it all in one book. Book 3 will prepare students for Level 2 of the Basic Series, or if you use the entire All-in-One course, students may continue into Book 3 of the Basic Series. However, if you only wish to use the lesson books, I think the best option is to use the Basic Series Lesson books. - Melissa

Purchase purely out of curiosity and considering it is fairly priced I decided it wouldn't hurt to try.

Easy to use for young beginners
This series combines learning notes, learning how to read notes, and strengthening finger skills into one. It is easy for young beginners without being excessively childish. I've enjoyed it, and have just re-purchased it for the next new learner in our family!

I have been using Alfred's Basic Piano All in One Book One to begin teaching my three children (ages 5 6 and 7) to play piano this year In two months all of them recognize and name quarter notes half notes whole notes and other symbols Each child can read music clap the rhythms and play accordingly Each child can locate any note on the keyboard-- and that's all learned in the first third of the book! The theory lessons are nicely interspersed with the songs to play Each theory lesson brings a few new songs where the child can apply their new knowledge I remember toting around several different piano books as a kid I remember disliking my theory book in particular So I greatly appreciate that these theory lessons are lumped in so meaningfully with the songs and though there are sufficient quantities of theory lessons they don't seem to override the entire book or intimidate the learner I LOVE that the kids can learn all the starter knowledge with just one book! Plus they're so tickled that they're able to play so soon and they're proud to show their Dad If you're looking for a useful and attractive beginner book for your child you should strongly consider this one I also offer my kids little rewards that come with their practice and progress Just last night my husband was marveling that they could all play like this in two months! My kids are very different from each other in personalities but they are each able to learn to play piano very successfully with the help of this book I will admit that I like this so well I've already purchased Books 1-5 in this series These Alfred's Basic Piano ALL IN ONE books are definitely worth a try and considerably more cost effective than buying 4-5 different beginner piano books with different focuses!
