The Best Piano and Keyboard Method Books

Originally published at:

Learning to play the piano can be one of the best things you ever do for yourself. And whatever your motivation may be, learning to play an instrument has never been easier. With online classes, in-person lessons, and self-guided learning, you have a vast array of options. No matter which option you choose, you will…

Is ‘Alfred’s Basic Piano Library Lesson Book’ of the same series as the Alfred’s mentioned above? Thats the one my daughters instructor is asking us to use along with lessons. If it is, why are some of the others listed for beginners preferred over the Alfred’s one we’ve been asked to get?
Thank you.

Hi! I like the Alfred method very much for adults but for my boys it did not work that well. I found a good alternative in the Mango piano method . It’s written in the same style to the Alfred one but designed for children. You should try it.

Regardless of the method, developing the right skills from the start will make a huge difference in your sight reading ability. After not finding anything that explains them all in one place, I went ahead and did it myself so I have something to refer to when I forget. May it be helpful to others out there:
