The Second Edition of Alfred's Group Piano for Adults, Book 1, includes updates inspired by numerous recommendations from group piano teachers and students.

Designed for collegiate non-keyboard music majors with little or no keyboard experience, the easy-to-use text contains 26 units, each intended to be covered in one week, thus fulfilling two semesters or three quarters of study. Theory, technique, sight-reading, repertoire, harmonization, improvisation and ensemble activities are taught thoroughly and consistently throughout the text.
