Beginning Piano For Adults is designed for students at the college level (music major or non-music). Material is divided into four sections: Pre-Reading; Reading; Functional Piano; and Piano Literature, Technique and Style. Carefully slected exercises ensure gradual, thorough reading progress in all keys.
Pre-Reading and Reading sections emphasize good reading habits and rhythmic orientation through technic. Fundamentals of theory and musical structure are also introduced.
The material found in the Functional Piano section provides useful training for music education students, who must be able to harmonize given melodies with appropriate accompaniment. The Piano Literautre, Technique and Style section contains sufficient material for four semesters' work, covering everything from keyboard orientation to piano literature by master composers.

Growing up as the daughter of piano teacher Gladys Smisor, Jane began her childhood lessons with Leota Anderson in Hutchinson, Kansas. After graduating from Barnard College of Columbia University, she continued her studies with Isabelle Vengerova in New York, and received a Master of Arts degree from Teachers College, Columbia University. Jane Smisor Bastien was formerly a pedagogy professor and director of the Preparatory Department of Music at Tulane University, where she had an opportunity to extensively research current methodology in developing the Bastien teaching materials for children.
Because she still teaches a large number of students in her home in La Jolla (San Diego), Jane's composing continues to be directly related to her own students' experiences. She knows what appeals to contemporary children and writes music that they will find fun to play. In recognition of their significant contribution to music and music education, Jane and her husband James Bastien were presented with the 1999 MTNA Lifetime Achievement Award.
