    I am enjoying playing the songs out of this book. I am not the most experienced pianist, and because of the arrangements, I can still play these songs like a pro.

  • July 15, 2008 My kind of music

    I like the pieces, the arrangement etc: most of the pieces which I like are there, also the larger typeface is good for me,(my eyes are not quite what they used to be) and these books are especially easy to use, also the information at top etc; the artists...

    and the chart place information is good.It is nice to use for Piano and keyboard, I mainly use the books to arrange the pieces on my keyboard so the information at the top is very helpful for this.
