I was looking for sheet music for my daughter and loved the fact that I could listen to it before purchasing. I also purchased Arabian Tale I am not a piano player myself so it is a great way to purchase a gift.

I echo the other reviews that comment on the beauty of this piece. A great recital choice for a quick first year/second year student.

5 STARS! Morning Snowfall just sounds so lovely, go ahead and "LISTEN TO", and "LOOK AT" this one, yet it's easy to learn within the 5 finger position in both hands 98% of the time, really Late Elementary, but this is "THE BEST" for a Recital, playing at the HOLIDAY TIMES, anytime it's snowing out, anytime. It will only take a short time to learn to memorize this one, anyone will love to play & hear this piece - it's my favorite Winter Time piano piece, it's so easy to learn & play, BUT sounds so wonderful to everyone! Enjoy, happy playing!

This is a great piece for late elementary students--beautiful melody, presents some challenge but not overwhelming. A good one for the student who may be bored with a lot of their method book music.

Great preparatory left-hand etude too!
I found this lovely little piece sitting on my niece's piano while visiting and, being nearsighted, held it up to my nose while playing it for the first time with the left hand alone. To my delight, I discovered I could play it through with just the left hand playing the melody notes with the thumb and forefinger - it's a great exercise in learning to roll twelfth intervals without missing a beat (hence my difficulty rating) This is a nice segue for more advanced students who may try their hand (no pun intended) with something like Raymond Lewenthal's 1972 anthology, "Piano music for one hand". (I love Blumenfeld's etude for the left hand, op. 36 in that collection.)

Makes for pleasant listening
I love to give this song to my students. It is fairly easy, but they do feel as if they are playing real music. It is great piece to teach beginning pedal. It is also lovely for the listener. I have used this song in recitals for my beginning students.

highly recommended !!
This is a lovely piece for beginners, cantabile melody with beautiful, flowing legato lines over a simple, but very effective, accompaniment. Hands have to shift, but never stretch- everything happens within five finger positions. Good piece to starts kids on legato pedal. Easy to read, easy to learn and makes for good listening. This isn't your typical beginners piece. I can see my pupils get a sense of "I'm playing a 'real' piece of music", not just another beginners piece or exercise in disguise. My pupils simply love Morning Snowfall, so do I.

This is a very beautiful two-page composition written in ABA form. It is somewhat impressionistic in style, because the sustain is held through the entire piece. It requires the melody to be emphasized with the left hand as a "carpet of sound". My student learned it fairly quickly because it was such a pretty piece, and she really liked it.
