    Difficulty Level:
  • April 14, 2009 This one can be a bit difficult to follow

    The play on the CD is very fast. Having the sheet music is very helpful but the CD can be very intimidating.

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 27, 2007 My Fault, should have research this book further.

    I can recall from the seventies a book on Bill Evans with illustrations showing the fingers on the hand exactly where they should be to play the notes...Yes I relize this is a very basic way to learn,but It was for a young girl who loves Bill Evans...

    music and I thought it may be a good way for her to practice his cordings. This book did not have that...Very advanced, So She'll have it when she begins to read music...soon hopefully.

    Perfect piano transcriptions and lots of fun to play. The CD is very helpful and makes learning the music easier. Obviously challenging but well worth the money.
