Hello everyone,
I want to buy a book to become better at playing the piano, but I don't know what to get. I've done piano lessons for 2 years so I know the basics. Can anyone help?
Thanks

try getting ABRSM books or other exam books and Alfred's basic adult piano book. Just get the books that meet your playing level.

I tried Alfreds but it wasn't very helpful

Try the Suzuki method - it was created by Suzuki to make people realise music is just like another language. It's really fantastic - many internationally renowned musicians learnt their instruments on this method. I started the violin at 3 on it and it's really served me well! Don't worry - it starts at a really approachable level!

I don't mind whether they are enjoyable or not. I'm a grade 3 and anything really

There is also "pianoTV" on youtube and is one of the most useful piano channels on youtube, she also has advise on books, videos about composers. Her channel has helped me a lot since i am self-taught and dont have much books for piano yet.

honestly, it depends on whether you want to actually improve in terms of technique or if you just want to be able to play certain songs to a decent level. If it's the former, I suggest Hanon and Czerny. It's a bit boring but it really does help you quite a bit. There are also quite a few exercises that you can get off YouTube, etc. which can help you improve your technique as well. If it's the latter, I suggest just learning the piece and then practising it
Hope it helps
