fun with Gershwin
I am a retiree that started piano lessons in retirement. My ability is limited and this book is a reasonable challenge for my skills. I just wish the music was arranged with more chords for the left hand so the music sounded richer.

a superior easier interpretation
Brimhall has written lots of instruction books but this Gershwin 'easy' book is superb. Don't confuse this with typical easy or Big Note books. This is easy intermediate but with full classic sound and harmony. Enough challenge to improve your playing. Masterfully interpreted by Brimhall. I

Very nice and the "right" easy
Easy, but not too easy. Some of the pieces will challenge a beginner to grow! Good stuff. Usually easy arrangements are not so nice, but these are pretty good! This is a nice collection of music that's fun to play with a group of friends who join in and sing....

If you like Gershwin music...
this is some of his best and familiar pieces. You will enjoy this book because it has some variety of his work and they are fun to play. In fact, when I heard some of the songs, I didn't realize Gershwin had written them!
