Alfred's is very chord based, and doesn't really develop the left hand much. I think the best adult method book is Hal Leonard, but Adult Piano Adventures is also quite good if you want something in between Hal Leonard and Alfred. I have playlists

Seymour Bernstein is fantastic. I knew of and read him long before this film came out; his books "With Your Own Two Hands" and "Monsters and Angels", did more to advance my musical and personal self than any of my private teachers

Alfred's is very popular, but I don't think it's the best. The left hand doesn't get developed properly, it just plays chords, and the book moves at an unrealistic pace. Especially if you are teaching yourself. I think the best adult method book is

I prefer a streaming site as that makes someone stealing your audio file more difficult. It may not be a big risk, but the risk isn't zero. Soundcloud.com is free and provides a streaming service for just audio and I believe you can allow downloads i

I hope it will remain alive. I doubt it though, music is haram to the majority there and there seems to be (seems!) really little room for nuances in the area.

It is only by looking for perfection that you get the flawed DPs we have today. If we were content with whatever we get we would still be playing on a Wurlitzer 200A. The industry could have advanced a lot more. There is no reason to still be worki

I finally ended up buying the N1 last week and it was delivered to my house yesterday. In the end, no stores in my area had a V-piano to try so I crossed that one out, and I couldn't find an RD800 to demo either. I only found the RD700, and I was t
