Easy to use , Easy to follow for this beginner -no real piano necessary 16 Dec 2013
By LaShawnda Oglesby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beginner Piano Elements for Adults is unbelievably easy to read. From the first lesson on position and finger numbers, I could completely follow along. It truly teaches you all you need to know to get started. Learning about posture and keyboard notes helps you to get ready for basic Right Hand three note songs. The further you get in the book the more advance you get.
Not only do you get the opportunity to learn how to play the piano. But the book comes with free video guides, to show you more in depth look. You learn to count and measure notes, each lesson has a opportunity to help advance you in your performance. No matter if you’re a RH right handed or LH left handed you can follow along with this book. Even if you don’t have a piano you can download a piano on your smart phone and learn to play along on the phone piano with the book. So happy to have found this book, will definitely look into other books by Damon Ferrante.

This book is wonderful 6 Feb 2014
By dreamsofinsomnia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this book. It is easy to follow and so clear. It not only teaches technique but also how to read music and music terms in an easy to follow format. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to learn piano.

I loved how it introduced chords and the left hand. It is so straight to the point and so easy to follow that a person who has never taken a music class could easily follow.

The video instruction is great. They show you how to hold your hand. I learned that your suppose to lift your finger after every note, something I never knew.

I think this book is a five out of five and would encourage you to try it.

Piano playing on your bucket list? 19 Dec 2013
By Mrs. Jewell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Truly, for all of my music lovers who have always wanted to learn an instrument! This course showcases Professor Damon Ferrante teaching beginner to advanced piano playing. His method is simple and this particular series uses clear language, video lessons, book exercises, and universal accessibility to cater to the needs of late learners.
The video lessons are a great resource to use with the series. Also, the books help you learn by playing actual songs! I thought I could never teach myself the art of piano, a hobby I gave up as a child, but Ferrante makes his lessons suited for adults with little to no experience. Try it out, you won't regret it!

This book is great 6 Feb 2014
By Jason P. Ferron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book. I have never taken a class but found myself staring at the keyboard and plucking tunes out. I don't play but I feel after looking at this book and video I could at least play a simple tune. My Fiancee' pushed me to try this and I am really glad I did. If you are thinking of learning to play piano I would use this book. I am certainly glad I gave it a try.

A Perfect Introduction to the Piano 7 Feb 2014
By Michael D. Rickicki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beginner Piano Elements for Adults is a true gem. The author, being an accomplished professor, composer, and performer, has a real understanding of the way the piano works and the most common mistakes and obstacles students encounter when beginning to learn. In addition, unlike other beginning books, he has ensured that even rank beginners with no knowledge of ho to read music can start learning piano from the minute they open the book.

I know that the book is meant for adults but I cannot wait to give it a try with my six year old! Great book!
