To make the Music Ace products
more useful with the most popular piano
methods, we have developed a set of Method
Correlations and lesson reference labels that can be placed into the method book. The correlations and labels are available
as printable pdf downloads.
The correlations provide a cross-reference between specific
method books and pages within those books
to specific Music Ace lessons and sections.
These correlations will help piano teachers and
students better use Music Ace lessons with
their piano lessons. Labels include the page number in the method book and a reference to a specific lesson and section within Music Ace, Music Ace2, Music Ace Deluxe, Music Ace Deluxe – PSE or Music Ace Maestro.
Correlations and labels are currently available for the following methods/books:
- Hal Leonard – Piano Student Library, Books 1-5 and All-In-One A and B.
- Faber - My First Piano Adventure, Level A-C; Piano Adventures, Primer-Level 5
- Alfred – Prep Course, Levels A-F
Thompson – Easiest Piano Course, Part 1-8
- Bastien/Kjos – Piano Basics, Primer-Level 4

The Piano Method Correlations can also be searched using the On-line Correlation Search Tool. This tool makes it easy to use the Music Ace lessons in conjunction with popular piano method books. It allows piano teachers and students to locate Music Ace lessons that correlate to specific piano method books by method, book, and page. It also allows Music Ace lessons to be located by topic, such as "half notes" or "rests". Click here to access this tool.
