i'm new playing started self teaching and after suggestions I got a teacher, had my first lesson a few days ago. my teacher teaches school ad does private lessons, has over 80 students in private lessons. here is what he told me: he told me book one is just about being able to count and playing the correct notes as well as learning the notes, book 2 is where you learn to stay in time. so basically book 1 you worry more about playing correct notes and not worry about perfecting the time. I suppose that will come in time so I will continue to upload on youtube as I progress so everyone can see my mistakes and know you are not alone.

My teacher has stressed 'playing in time' on every song I've learned, with as much or more importance than playing the correct note.

I view "being able to count" as understanding how long a note should be played in relation to other notes, which you could do while clapping, tapping your legs or saying out loud - one, two, three...or one-and-two-and-three,one-and (and so on). And then being able to replicate this on the piano. Alouette is a good song to learn this relatively easily.

CRTT I definitely agree with Noonie on this, you should be staying in rhythm from the very start of playing and not waiting until book #2!

If you look at p 13 of the Alfred's #1 book you will see an example of how to correctly count quarter notes and half notes. Rhythm is taught from the very start. I would highly recommend to get your rhythm down from the beginning and not wait to focus on that until book #2.

Agree with blackjack and Noonie here. Get rhythm right first. If you do sight reading exercises you'll learn that hitting the right notes isn't as important as keeping rhythm. Book one does introduce dotted quarter notes. You'll definitely want to get that right smile
