1. What makes Piano Adventures different from other piano methods?
Piano Adventures is unique for its foundation on a “triangle of learning” called ACE. The three components within the triangle—ACE—stand for Analysis, Creativity, and Expression. The books are imbued with these three learning principles to create a full, successful music experience. For more, check out Teach and Learn with ACE.
Piano Adventures also offers methods that recognize four different age levels. Each method caters to attributes of that age group for pacing, repertoire, theory, technique, and creative activities. For an overview,
- My First Piano Adventure (ages 5-6)
Written for the young beginner, this course captures the child’s playful spirit with five “friends at the piano,” charming songs, and rhythm and technique games.
- Basic Piano Adventures (ages are 6-11)
Piano Adventures Basic offers an exciting exploration. Its varied 8-level curriculum has appealing repertoire, theory, improvisation, composition, and a systematic technique program right from the start.
- Accelerated Piano Adventures for the Older Beginner (ages 11-17)

- Adult Piano Adventures (ages 17-100!)
