As a piano teacher who has had a wide range of students from ages 6 all the way through retired adults, the Piano Adventures series is my go-to source for core piano curriculum. The Fabers did an excellent job organizing skills into a logical progression and included a variety of music. There’s something for everyone to love: Classical, Jazz, Pop, Spiritual, Rock, and much more.
Book 1 of the series gives you a strong foundation for playing piano. You learn fundamental techniques as well as reading sheet music, what rhythm and meter is, and how to add a deep sense of expression to your playing.
