For the first time ever, musical selections from the first five Harry Potter movies are available in one jam-packed collection. These all-time favorite themes have been arranged in traditional five-finger style, with the melody split between the hands, and without key signatures in the student part. Starting hand positions are illustrated above each piece. Fingerings that are outside the noted five-finger positions and those indicating a shift in hand position are circled for easy identification. Dotted quarter notes, triplets and sixteenth notes have been avoided. All of the pieces have optional duet accompaniments created to achieve a fuller, richer musical experience. Elementary-level pianists will love playing these arrangements, which faithfully render the magical music of John Williams, Patrick Doyle, and Nicholas Hooper. Full color art pages from each movie are included. Titles: Double Trouble * Dumbledore's Army * Fireworks * Hagrid the Professor * Harry in Winter * Harry's Wondrous World * Hedwig's Theme * Hogwarts Forever! * Hogwarts' Hymn * Hogwarts' March * Neville's Waltz * Nimbus 2000 * Potter Waltz * The Quidditch World Cup (The Irish) * Voldemort.

I bought this book for my eight year old daughter and she loves it. She takes piano lessons and is really into the Harry Potter books and movies. This was a great motivator for her and the music is simple enough for her to read.

Great beginner arrangements
My grandaughter was thrilled. She is a beginning player who loves Harry Potter. She played some for me on Skype (as we live 3000 miles apart.) Nice to combine two of her favorite things...Thanks

Nice selection and images
I like the selection of songs in this book, although some of the "themes" are a bit hard to relate to the movie since they are just a five-finger arrangements. Still, my piano students love it, and the photos from the movies are great.

Very nice edition
This is a great book for older beginners. The five-finger notation is straightforward, yet it is written so that it gives you a lot of variations on both clefs. And the best part of this book is that when you master the five finger, they have included a more advanced...
