  • December 15, 2015 really like this version

    I'm a piano teacher. I regularly have students who want to learn this song, and this version correlates nicely with Piano Adventures Level 3B - which ends with the Canon (in C). This is harder & longer than that version, so it presents a challenge, but it's not out of...

    reach. It has fingering marked, which is GREAT for students, plus the chords labeled. And it sounds pretty; some Canon versions just aren't pretty on piano. I can basically sight-read this song, but the addition of the chords gives me options to fill in more if I want.

  • April 19, 2013 beautiful

    I taught myself how to play when I was 12 and played piano until I moved out of the house at age 18. Now, I acquired the piano I learned on after 39 years. I am re-learning to play again. It's like riding a bike - it's all...

    coming back to me. This piece is easy, yet beautiful and well composed for the beginner and a joy to play!

  • October 08, 2012 Canon in D - Easy Piano

    Great arrangement. Playable by a beginner/intermediate pianist. I am an adult horn player, relearning piano, which I quit at age 10. I can almost play it, after some practice. My teacher sight read it for me with feeling and it was beautiful. Of course she is an advanced pianist...
