Hi fliper, I am about at the same spot you are. I'm learning Got Those Blues and On Top of Old Smokey.

I just listened to your Got Those Blues. Remember to pay attention to the Crescendo and Diminuendo signs.

Hi, quick question. I read this about Alfred's method and wonder if its cause for concern.

This method utilizes the concept of position playing, which has a disadvantage that students sometimes do not learn to read the notes, but rather rely totally on position playing. Thus, if they approach a piece of music not written in a Five Finger Position, they are at a loss.

This comment was about the childrens version, but would apply here as well, no?

Thoughts?

Welcome to this thread Johnny.
Thanks for your tip. You are right, I did not play the Crescendo and Diminuendo. Dynamics is one thing that I know I need to pay more attention and practice.

I have two kids, aged 5 and 8 who started lessons at the beginning of the year and they are both using Alfred's. When i watch them play, i can see them reading by intervals. This is quite correct i would think, I use flash cards with them and they know all their notes. As for positions, don't most methods begin this way? I don't think it's anything to be concerned about really. I think positions are used early but you do move on from them.

My teacher just started me on the book last week. I flew through the first seventy pages or so (though it filled in quite a few blanks), but now I'm going much slower and really trying to feel comfortable with each song before I move on. I was worried that there were seven or eight books in the beginner series, at first, but three seems pretty manageable. I like that there's supplementary material, like the Masterwork Collections, to go along with them.

EDIT: Also, I read today that the time between just starting piano and finishing this book should be about one year. Does that sound about right (assuming the person is taking lessons as well)?

I am in "On Top of Old Smoky", page 110 of Alfred All-In-One Adult book, I do not feel that. My learning is a mix of interval reading and notes reading.

I started from the begining of the book about one year ago, as self-learner, practice about one hour per day. I will take much longer than 1 year to finish the book 1. There are people here that finished the book in less than one year.
This depends in how much time you practice per day, your previous skills and, of course your ability to play piano.


Here are more recordings of last pieces. Dynamics must be improved.

065 - Blues for Wynton Marsalis
http://www.box.net/shared/hfg64j8zv7y9tf6ebsxn

066 - On the Top of Old Smoky
http://www.box.net/shared/x4z94deez8bxttxyjes2



I played two pieces with the "Boogie Beat" of my DP
Here are two recordings. This is much more fun than playing with the clicks of metronome.
Last measure of "Got those Blues" does not fit exactelly in the beat due to "ritardando ending".
"Chasing Blues Away" does not sound so good with the beat as "Got those Blues". I do not know how to choose the best beat yet.

063 - Got those Blues - Boogie Beat 78
http://www.box.net/shared/yc7phjructxuy8u4fc3p

064 - Chasing the Blues Away - Boogie Beat 78
http://www.box.net/shared/lq75ktp2mzm6x6rapxfv



I am going in holidays next week. Probably I have to review all pieces from "Jingle Bells" when I get back.

Thanks for the information. I'm glad to hear that Alfreds is indeed a good choice. I'm going to review some older posts and see if I can find some good supplemental pieces to work on. I've just started chords, so I'm not that far into the book yet. But if it does take around a year to get through, it might be nice to change it up once in awhile and practice something different.

I've been doing Alfred's Adult Beginner Book 1 for about 4 months now. I've mastered every song before moving onto the next one. However, I'm stuck on Joplin's "The Entertainer" right around the fifth stanza. Basically having trouble, I think, playing different tempos simultaneously with different hands. Any suggestions on how to get past this?

If it's the part I think it is with the phrase made of eighth notes, on the fifth line, then you're definitely not alone. By far that's the one phrase out of the entire book I had to practice the most before I got it down. My problem was I ended up playing it incorrectly so many times I had to unlearn all my bad practice.

My suggestion - keeping in mind I'm only a beginner - would be the standard routine..Hands separate and at a slow tempo until you can play both a parts with your eyes closed (or thereabouts), then again hands together slowly until have the feel of it and bring it up to speed. If you can play the other parts well it might just be the stretch of the right hand that makes it more difficult, not the syncopation.

Peace-Piece, I just listened to your version of Can-Can as I'm learning that now. Your version sounds good.

I also listened to your version of Cockles and Mussels.

It sounds a little fast there at the end, but I'm not sure.

Yeah I probably could have slowed down more at the end on there.

Listening to the can-can again, the left hand sounds a little uneven to me, and I didn't really apply the crescendo on the second line.

That's great! I remember having a little bit of trouble with Jingle Bells when I got to it in the book. Good luck!

I don't think there's any specific tempo ... slow between 60 & 80
moderate between 80-100
fast 100- infinity

something like that ... it's difficult enough for a beginner without trying to hit a specific beat

I try to make the music flow ... even if it's just pounding out When The Saints Go Marching In

I'm just a beginner too so take my advice with whatever grain of salt is needed

Best way is to listen the cd that comes with the book. The "Alfred's Teach Yourself to Play Piano" book has the bpm for each piece.

Ehhhmmm yeah, the version I got of amazon was without the cd, I did not know they had a cd less version, and just ordering the cd alone would cost , twice as much as the book did.

I'll make sure to order book 2 with a cd.

I'm glad I didn't get the CD. As others have pointed out, if you're unsure of what the piece should sound like and you don't have a teacher, every song is posted on YouTube.

I've been working on Alfred's AIO Piano Adult Course since late August. I'm up to around pg 44-49 When The Saints Go Marching In. I'm 52 and have rheumatoid arthritis, we just got a piano this summer and I thought it's as good a time as any to learn as long as my hands cooperate. Surprisingly my hands feel better now that I'm playing the piano than they have in years. I really feel them stiffening up if I don't play for a few days. So far I'm really enjoying this book.
Devtron, congrats!
KeysAngler, It looks like we are about at the same point in the book.

Alpine Melody besides being a good teaching aid is just a nice melody. I still l go back and play it just because I like the sound.I have been in and out of piano for some time now got hung up on guitar because I like to go out to jams with it and have fun playing with groups of people. However I still like keyboards and piano . I am using the Alfred's self teaching book and am at page 115 Cafe Vienna, a good sounding waltz when I get it right but having a little problem with the timing left to right.Good luck and enjoy Alpine Melody .
Don


Keep on pounding the keys and having fun with it..

Thanks, I was confused on how I should play that part on O Sole Mio.

So then I should roll those 5 notes out, one after the other, from low to high, right?

By the way, the B's are played flat in case anyone tries to play the chord.

Hi,

Right!

Once in a great while, a chord will be arpeggiated from top to bottom. The notation for that is the same squiggle, with a downward arrow to the left going the full length.

In your example, the melody note is at the top of the chord, so that's why it goes from bottom to top.

Have fun!

Gretchen
