Free Alfreds Adult Piano Lessons
I appreciate your free piano lessons very much. May I ask where are the remaining lessons for level 1 of the Alfred's Adult All in One method?
I am a new beginner, and would like to start learning piano at home. Is there something I need to do to access the lessons? Thank you in advance!

Thanks very much for writing and letting me know you're starting to learn piano at home. I'm excited for you and hope that my free piano lessons can help get you started.
I'm sorry I don't have all the Alfred's Level 1
I'm working on them! In fact, I'm working on all 3 levels and also formatting them into eBooks so you will be able to download the lessons easily, print them out, and have them with you when you sit down to practice piano.
I hope to have my piano tutorials done soon. In the meantime, here's what I suggest for beginners:
1) Sign up for Tickling the Ivories
, my newsletter, and get my free downloadable practice log and an article on why keeping records of your practice is so important. Print out a bunch of the logs and put them in a three-ring binder.
You can also check out my other suggested courses for learning to play piano at home
-- there's a very budget-friendly piano course there!
2) Sign up for the free adult beginner forums at Piano World
, where you can learn SO MUCH from other beginning pianists and also master teachers who post there. It's a great community and will really inspire you to stay on track while you're learning at home.
3) Make an appointment with yourself to practice, every day. Having a daily piano practice time is one of the most important factors to your success -- even if you only spend 15 minutes per day.
4) Have fun!
Try to play even the simplest exercise as beautifully as you can. Often, beginner pianists believe they won't be able to play beautifully until they're advanced. It's not true - even a one-octave C scale, played with the right hand, can be done with intention and attention to every detail.
Good luck to you! I wish you all the best in your journey to play piano.
