Hi Deborah,
I am taking lessons now using Adult Piano Adventure 2. I already finished Adult PA 1. What other books should I get to enhance my knowledge.. and what's next after PA 2 ? Is there A PA 3?
Thanks..

As far as I know, there is no Adult All-in-one PA 3 now.
APA2 is roughly equivalent to regular children's PA 3A+3B. Both end with the (same?) nice arrangement in C of Pachelbel's Canon. Regular 3B also seems to work more thoroughly the key signatures (D Major, D minor) than APA2.

I assume one can continue with intermediate repertoire or thematic collections (of which Fabers and FJH also put some; see Celebration and Learning with the Masters series) reinforced for structure by children's PA 4 and 5 which are advanced enough, and less childish by this stage. Most published "Easy Piano" collections become really easy only then...

Then the real work begins on real pro repertoire - be it classical, jazz, pop, avant-garde...

(Disclaimer: I'm also teaching myself, slowly through APA2 now, and varied downloaded pieces I like, some much above my comfort level; with peculiarities I wrote in Special Needs > Asperger's music joys and frustrations)

Deborah hasn't posted on this site since 2006. I wonder why the title of the forum hasn't been changed. Others have long been jumping in to help answer questions.
