    Absolutely thrilled to have found this volume! My intermediate students love the Classics To Moderns series, but my elementary students had to make do with other books…now they have one, also! With patience, even early elementary students can play these lovely pieces. They are perfect for recitals when all...

    the "big kids" are playing concert music and your younger students are stuck playing simplified tunes from Disney movies. There's nothing wrong with that, if your recital is movie themes…but when the younger students hear the more advanced students playing concert music, it's a point of pride for them to not only be playing concert music, but ACTUAL versions, not arrangements that are simplified. Fantastic!

  • 2011-06-08 00:00:00.0 Terrific book for beginners

    This is 'the' book for your beginning students. Solid classics in original form, no silly 'arrangements'. Easy enough for an early beginner. (Started a student in it when they reached Level One of Noona's Basic) They love being able to play classics like the 'big kids' and these are...

    a hit at recital time. Not too long, and not the usual 'silly 4-measure ditty' you usually hear. These may be no more than 4 measures with a repeat in a different dynamic, but they are certainly much different than the regular 'recital' books you get with most beginning methods.

    i like that these are unedited original pieces. they are written to sound well on the keyboard, and they do. i would however suggest one of the five finger books offered at sheetmusicplus to use just before this. but i think this book is a fine entrance in it's...

    own right. i trust it for my studio.
