    Love This Series

    I’ve been teaching piano for about 6 years now and for the first few years, I flipped between a few different method books among students to see which ones I thought were progressive and had fun songs.The Piano Adventures Method books have been my favorite so far if you’re looking for a solid lesson book to lay the groundwork, it gradually introduces a student to different dynamics, key signatures, theory, pedal introduction, etc… and I have enjoyed most of the accompaniments!All in all, I have stuck with these method books not just because they are simple for a teacher to follow but also for a student, I think lesson books are a vital part of teaching a child structure and discipline, it also allows for more freedom when they become teenagers because you can break away from lesson books and focus on more repertoire since you’ve already established that structure and disciplined practice that a lesson book offers.10/10 recommend.

    A good beginner lesson book

    I bought this some time ago for my piano students when I taught piano lessons. My students really liked it and could easily learn and grasp the piano song material. Now everyone is different. Some like the Bastien series, which I worked out of when I first started taking piano lessons. I found this is more of a structured piano book which works really well with other material in the level series.For a recommendation. It all comes down to preference and if you think your student(s) can grasp the material which is in my opinion a tad bit more structured. If you’re not convinced of buying this book, go to your local music store and ask to see it and compare it to other songbooks. You’ll know if it the right choice for you once you get to know and understand song material from this book. Me,I’d recommend it if you would like to teach a good understanding of basic piano song structure.

    Recommended by our instructor; excellent series

    An excellent series with tunes that are musical, even if simple. And the approach to learning is respectful of all levels, not demeaning. So different than the way I learned years ago! A pleasure both for those learning and the adults who have to listen to all the practicing!

    They have worked for us

    Great series of books teaching how to play the piano. Our piano teacher uses this series, and I have spoken to at least four more instructors in the area that all use these series to teach piano. Our daughter started with the first book in the series at age 5 and has been going through the books for the last two years. They teach the concepts progressively, with focus on good technique, enough variation, and a good selection of songs. She is never bored, and learns at a consistent pace. The main books for each level are called “Lesson Book”. The “Technique and Artistry Book” for the same level is a companion to help students improve their knowledge and technique about music and piano artistry. So they complement each other well, and we tend to move in parallel in both of those books. We primarily use those two in our classes. For each level there are also “popular repertoire” and “Christmas books” that take well known and liked songs and arrange them for that specific level of learning. We’ve sprinkled these here and there to keep things interesting for our daughter. There are also CDs that accompany the books, but I have no experience in those.

    Great for learning piano

    Bought this for my daughter. She learning piano right now and she said this book is really helping her advance.

    Best student method

    I’m a piano teacher. I’ve used the Faber products for years! They are excellent and don’t disappoint!

  11. Sharine Borslien

    Piano Adventures Lesson Book is solid!

    I have been teaching piano at the beginner and intermediate levels for ten years. I find the Faber & Faber Piano Adventures Lesson Book to be thorough with regard to well-rounded piano instruction. Their newer version duplicates some of the supplemental materials that I provide (i.e., pentachords, scales, I-IV-V chords), which my students learn far in advance of the book’s timeline. By the time most of my students complete level 2A, they have memorized all the major pentachords and scales and are working on the minor keys. Still, for under $8 per lesson book, this series is affordable and packed with songs that my students enjoy learning. I appreciate the massive efforts of Faber & Faber to make piano study fun and steadily progressive.

    Best Lesson book for a second year player.

    Favor lesson books are the best for a new young player. The child learning piano is in second year of lessons.

    Not much to say, except that the quality of the book is great.

  14. Heather

    Right book, but new edition

    Be careful when ordering this one. Apparently they have updated the 2A edition and the songs are not the same as the regular 2A book. Well, some are the same. i ordered a second book for my kids so they could keep one at their grandma’s house to practice and it is NOT the same as their other 2A book. I think it is still usable but we will have to look for the songs on different pages than in their original book. Not a huge deal, just a little inconvenient.

    Perfect for learning

    Easy to follow

  16. Jenny

    Perfect for my daughter

    We were using another piano series for my daughter that my son had used. She was doing okay, but just not excited about playing the piano. Her piano teacher recommend The Piano Adventure series. It has great songs that keeps my daughter wanting to play (and us wanting to hear them practiced). There are fun illustrations on each page to catch her interest. This series was a much better fit for her.

    I love the Faber Piano Adventure books

    As a piano teacher, I love the Faber Piano Adventure books. They provide an excellent range of musical styles and integrate music theory principles in a comprehensible manner to children. While I’m sure the “Music Theory” books Faber provides are excellent, I’ve found the integrative theory in the “Lesson Books” to be sufficient for my needs. Of all the piano teaching books I’ve used over the years, I like Faber the most.

    Keeps my students engaged and interested with fun songs they actually want to play

    I’ve been teaching out of the Faber Piano Adventures series for years. Keeps my students engaged and interested with fun songs they actually want to play. This series helps build a good foundation of repetiore and theory knowledge.

    Cover misprint

    The media could not be loaded.

     The content of the book seems fine, but the cover seems to be misprinted and cut very poorly. If damaged product is being sold, that should be disclosed and the price should be discounted. I am not pleased about paying full price for a damaged book although there is some comedic value that it was delivered this way.

    Book was fine. Arrived damaged and bent , but Amazon was willing to work with me on replacement. Unfortunately, replacement was also damaged, but book is exactly what we need.

    An excellent series

    I use the Piano Adventures series quite often with students. The literature is appealing and the concepts are presented well.

    Great quality we expect and receive from this series

  35. Joe stone

    Good for beginners, but they sent me the wrong book twice

    The book is good for beginners. I was sent the wrong book by the ((send))er. That’s why this gets 1 star, when you make this mistake twice I think people should be aware ( I was sent this book twice ) instead of 2A sight reading.

    Print is so wrong

    The media could not be loaded.

     From page 24 to back to 17 page then couple duplicated pages. Again , it started from page 24to 41pages. Between 25-40 pages are totally missing.. who might check every page is right? When I noticed it that it was too late to refund or exchange and has to buy again .. waste money ..

    What my 14 year old needed her second year of piano

  44. curtis donaldson

    Great series

    I love this series. It introduces kids to things slowly, but my second grader has been picking up on this really quickly. She has been playing for about a year. She has only had consistent lessons for a few months now. Prior to this, she had some lessons for about two months and then I just worked her through the first book myself after we moved until I could get her a new teacher. I don’t know that I would be able to do it myself at this level, because although I have a music background, I do not have a background in piano, but she is grasping it with her piano instructor!

    Good book. The lessons written to educate students are …

    Good book. The lessons written to educate students are rather minimal, but have the basics. As the teacher, I just expand on the topics covered or explain them in more detail if the student is struggling. The pieces are good. Just hard enough that the kids need to prattle, but not so hard that they give up in frustration. I would use this book for kids who have played for a year or so and are working on adding new skills such as independent hand movements, eighth notes and other new note lengths, and some more basic musical terms and notations.

    Perfect fit second stage beginners.

    I wish I gad these books when I started learning to play the piano.

  49. Chris

    Missing and out of order pages

    The book came with missing pages and some duplicate pages completely out of order starting on page 24. Unfortunately by the time my daughter progressed to this page, the return window already closed. The book is practically useless now.
