Here is a step by step plan to help building a great piano playing technique with suitable material for beginner (adult) pianists. There are many books about piano technique "out there". These are the
piano books I have found give great, measurable results and that are very
effective for beginners.
There are many sheet music books to help you improve your piano playing technique. These are the ones that I find “fool-proof” and have stood the test of time. They give great results together with a beginning piano method book or two.
By working your way through these technique books, you have mastered the beginner levels of piano playing, and have reached an early intermediate level.
You can continue to work with the Celebration series as it is a great anthology of many different composers. Together with Hanon's exercises and a good scale book you are quite set for a while!
Here is a summary of my recommendations of great piano playing technique books with exercises and etudes for beginner and early intermediate pianists that are fun, effective, complement each other, and really works:
Also warmly recommended to continue with:
