With literally thousands of books and resources to choose from, there's no doubt that Alfred is one of the leading publishers of musical media. Every musician depends on songbooks and sheet music to fill out their repertoire. If you're a beginner, the role of publications is even more important, with technique and fundamentals guides that will be your handbooks as you learn. With their expansive library, Alfred is sure to have something for you.
Take songbooks and tablature for example. There are plenty of these to choose from, including compilations of artists like the Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana, Led Zeppelin, Katy Perry and dozens more. You'll even find music from popular video games such as Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda and World of Warcraft. Choosing songbooks and tabs for the music you like best is a great way to motivate yourself to play and improve.
For building up your foundational skills, Alfred also carries guidebooks and lessons for all kinds of instruments. From chord charts to workbooks, there are tons of resources here to help you develop and fine-tune your technique with the instrument of your choice. Many of these educational books include CD or DVD companions, providing interactive lessons, examples, accompaniments and other helpful media that will liven up the learning process.
Of course, practical study isn't the only part of music: a great musician needs to be well-rounded, with a sound knowledge of theory and history. Thankfully, Alfred hasn't forgotten about this, either. Method books and self-study guides like the Teach Yourself Piano Book and CD give you the freedom to work at your own pace, starting with basic concepts and building upward from there.
Whether you're just learning a new instrument or you're a seasoned pro looking for some new sheet music to add to your collection, Alfred has you covered. Here you'll find a selection of printed references and resources that's second to none.
