Since 1922, Alfred Music Publishing has been teaching, guiding, and inspiring music-lovers of all ages and skill levels by offering a wide range of unique and enjoyable educational materials. From piano course lesson books to complete starter guitar courses and everything in between, Alfred currently boasts over 150,000 titles, and they haven't showed any signs of slowing down. In other words, if you've always wanted to be a musician but were never sure where to start, consider this section your launching pad.
Before exploring your choices, taking your own tastes and preferences into consideration will certainly help you make a quicker decision. For example, any enthusiastic percussionist would love the Stick Control for the Snare Drummer (Book). In fact, many educators see this book as the "bible of drumming", because it teaches you everything from control, speed, and touch to strengthening your hands. Or, maybe you've always wanted to play the piano... in which case, turn your attention to Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course Lesson Book 1. This beginners course is specifically for adults who prefer a chord approach, and it includes an impressive variety of well-known piano favorites, including "Amazing Grace", "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands", "Jingle Bells", and many others.
Alfred Music Publishing also has tab books containing songs by legendary recording artists, and any up-and-coming guitarist who wants to play those classic riffs will find the tunes they're looking for in the Led Zeppelin Box Set I-V Guitar Tab Platinum Edition. Spanning all 5 albums, every guitar bend, slide, and solo from one of rock'n'roll's finest can be found here, as well as 30 years of documentation, interviews, vintage photos, recording footage and more. A true collectible for any Led head, these all-new transcriptions deliver remarkable accuracy and insight into Jimmy Page's guitar style.
Of course, it would take forever to mention every single item Alfred has available in this selection, so feel free to explore their other options. Whether you have aspirations of fame or simply want to take up a new hobby, everything in Alfred's catalog has been assembled specifically to make your first music steps fun and easy to follow.
