This adult all-in-one series seems like an accelerated adult lesson book- the songs become increasingly difficult at a rate that most students probably would not be able to achieve. Plus, a huge portion of the songs are solely Mexican pieces- you'd think the publisher was obsessed with this type of music alone! As a music teacher, I would recommend the Faber all-in-one adult series over Alfred. It has a greater variety of music and doesn't advance a student as quickly. I use it for teenage students, and they all love it.
