Alfred Inside

Music Books From Alfred Publishing
Since 1922, Alfred Publishing has dedicated itself to helping people learn, teach and play music. More than 6.5 million pianists around the world have learned to play the piano with the help of Alfred's Basic Piano Course, making it the most trusted piano method books in the world. Now a new generation of pianists can learn using this proven method, but with a new practice partner – the Kawai digital piano.

Kawai digital pianos are the only instruments with Alfred lesson songs built into them*. With the built-in lesson songs, a student can listen to the instructional song being played by an Alfred staff pianist. The student can follow along with the lesson book** to learn how the piece is supposed to sound.  The student can slow the song down and play along, even muting the recorded left-hand or right-hand parts to practice hands separately (a common practice technique). The student can also record his or her performance and then compare it to the built-in performance.

Music Books From Alfred Publishing

Many Kawai digital pianos feature built-in piano pieces from Alfred's Basic Piano Library 1A and 1B... essentially the first year of piano lessons. Some models also feature Alfred's new Premier Course 1A and 1B. Others also have Alfred's Basic Adult Course Level 1. (See each model's specifications for the list of books built-in.)

With "Alfred Inside," a student can develop good practice habits and avoid the pitfalls of incorrectly practicing a new song. It's "Practice Made Perfect"... almost like having your teacher come home with you!
