My First Piano Adventure captures the child's playful spirit. Fun-filled songs, rhythm games and technique activities develop beginning keyboard skills. My First's three levels, A, B, and C, each have a Lesson Book with CD and a Writing Book.  
 

Piano Adventures for beginning students ages 7 to 9.

All students need the Lesson Book and Theory Book.
 

Accelerated Piano Adventures for the Older Beginner  ages 10 and up.

This course begins with Book One, eliminating the use of a primer. The pieces and illustrations are appropriate for an older age. The repertoire is sufficiently different from the basic course to allow two siblings to both use Piano Adventures. The Lesson Book is essential, supported by the Theory Book.


Adult Piano Adventures for adult beginners. 

"All-In-One" books. Book 1 introduces the concepts of music notation, chord playing, rhythm, harmony, and musical form—all through engaging music. Book 2 applies the basics of music theory using "lead sheets" with chord accompaniment patterns. Each unit includes a "3-Minute Technique" page to develop finger dexterity and a "Music Theory" page to develop understanding of rhythm and harmony.
