Learn to play the piano and open up a brand new world of musical knowledge with this exciting three-volume eBook method from Alfred Music, the world leader in educational music publishing since 1922. Beginners of all ages can start their journey to a lifetime of playing piano.
Volume 1 of Alfred’s Teach Yourself To Play Piano begins with the fundamentals: learning how to sit at the piano, fingerings, the keyboard’s layout, and getting acquainted with standard music notation. You will then move right along to playing different notes and songs, first with one hand and then with two. Melodic and harmonic intervals are covered, as well as a series of finger “aerobics” that will improve your playing skills and make the pieces in the book easier to play.
Audio examples and video lessons are integrated throughout the book so you can see and hear an experienced piano teacher guiding you through every step. Video lessons clearly show the left and right hands, and onscreen music notation is highlighted as the music plays so you can easily follow along. If you’ve wanted to learn how to play the piano but didn’t know where to start, Alfred’s Teach Yourself To Play Piano is the perfect course for you!
