  • July 25, 2014 Bring back the old songs!

    Grew up in a home where my mother played all kinds of music on the piano and as I played through this book and all the other oldies in the Decade by Decade Series of Dan Coates, it brought back so many songs in my head that I heard her...

    play! Easy to play...don't have to relearn them..just sit down and play them. Dan Coates arranges music so nicely for people to ENJOY!!!!

    I play the piano at 2 of the major hospitals. The songs in the book were written when music was actually music which had beautiful words and melodies. Some of the most requested songs come from this book. Elderly people will actually walk up the stairs to where I am...

    to comment on how this brings back memories and how much they enjoy hearing the music.
