    WONDERFUL for older beginners

    I’ve been teaching piano for 15 years and just recently came across this series. I had a high school student start taking lessons earlier this year and I decided to try the series with her. I’m totally sold on these now. The tunes are great and the teacher duets make the pieces so much fun in lessons. I felt it was great for someone who is past the cute-colored-pictures books age. Highly recommend. A prior review talked bad about this product, but it’s not that the product is bad. This is the “ACCELERATED piano adventure” series- not the regular “piano adventure” series which they were looking for.

    An excelent series for kids and adults!

    The faber advanced beginner series has been great. I just finished the first book and have started the second. I love the selection or songs from jazz to classical and even a Spanish song I’ve only heard on guitar before: malagueña. It’s a great series even if you’re an adult like me.

  4. Keeyana

    Yes! Just buy it

    Excellent book to learn from. I am thoroughly enjoying myself. It is very simple, love it!

    For the serious tween too!!!

    My son takes his piano lessons seriously. His teacher suggested switching to Faber adult books. I’m glad we made the change. These books are helping him advance on his piano technique, and theory.

    Great piano series for beginners.

    Great series of books for beginners. My son is currently using this particular book and enjoys it. The difficulty level is just about right for him, and he’s been playing about half a year now. The first book was great too!

    Great adult learning program

    each song/page presents new info, so not a book you “fly through”, but need to work diligently on that one piece and understand the concept because the next song will build on it.

    A well implemented vision for teaching piano to adults

    The book is well made. It stays open well on the piano. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but if it’s as good as the first volume it’s going to be excellent!

    Good series. The students can move slowly with these books and you can supplement with other music materials for teaching.

    Great book for adult learners

    I completed the first edition of this book and enjoyed the variety of selections and the method used. I’m only half way through this edition, but it makes learning to play the piano easy and fun.

  31. Burton, OH

    Outstanding series

    As a piano teacher of more than a quarter of a century, the Faber series is my favorite I’ve ever used. Unless the child is in 2nd grade or lower, I usually start them with the Accelerated Piano Adventures for the Older Beginner. Between Book 1 & 2 of the Older Beginner series, it covers the primer through 2B material at a little faster pace and then jumps back into the regular series at 3A.

    description was not accurate

    The description was not accurate or informative enough on this product. It appears to be lessons 2 and 2a into one book, it is not. It does not match the theory book and is for accelerated students. I did not get what I thought I had ordered.

    Very good book for adult learners!

    I’m an adult learner, familiar with reading music as a singer, and this book is great! It’s not too simple and not too challenging either. I’m doing virtual lessons right now and it’s made me feel very accomplished very quickly.

  34. Hoan

    Not much to say here.

    Good for people who want to play the piano.

  35. Rachel Dickey

    Much better than 2A

    I am not particularly fond of the pieces in the 2A Faber and Faber Lesson book. This book is more complete and gives the student and teacher so many more choices to teach one concept or to practice a concept with the variety of styles and the sheer length of the book. I have started using it with all of my middle of 1-2A students. Highly recommend

    Good book follows well after book one

  38. Kelsey S.

    Amazing book!!

    I love this book. I’m 16 and have just started piano and I’m progressing really quickly with this. The pieces are so fun to play and sound great so when you master them the sense of gratification is so good. I didn’t have the book 1 I just went straight onto this book 2 and I’m really enjoying it and finishing it challenging but not impossible which is good! Such a good price also as some Hal Leonard books of a similar sort are much more expensive.

    Great book & song selection

    I love Faber piano books. In general they tend to be formatted comprehensively and sequentially, allowing the student to build upon what they already know and what they are learning. Plus, I’m working on this book with a student and we both have enjoyed the song selections.

  44. Valeria

    Learning to play piano

    The book is easy to learn, it teaches you how to read music.

  46. Paola

    I play the piano.

    I love these books! I had books1 and they were amazing, too! I’ve been taking my lessons with my piano teacher through zoom, because of her location, and the books are super easy to navigate even when we can’t be in person, so I’m loving books2 as well.

    A great piano book in the time of Covid-19.

    This is a great book that is helping progress in my playing and music reading. Since Covid, I havent been able to have in persons, and zoom lessons dont work for me. This is one of the books that is keeping me going.

    Great buy!

    Very good book for learners! My daughters piano teacher recommended it! Love to see my daughter play by reading musical notes from this book!

  49. dbs

    A fun variety of music to learn

    This is a great book for getting the basics skills of piano. The pieces are simple but there is a good variety of styles of music, so I am getting exposed to a variety of techniques. They are fun pieces to play, so I feel motivated. As the pieces become more complicated, I feel confident in my progress.
