  • November 28, 2015 Christmas Music With A Flair

    I have Dan Coates' book Simply Christmas, and it is a straight forward, easy arrangements of many Christmas songs. This book is the next notch up in difficulty from that book. The arrangements are similar but involve more 3 fingered chords and a little more variation in the tune. It...

    is a fun book to tackle and rewarding to master.

    If you're traveling for the holidays and you can only take one piano book, choose this one! This book has all the songs you'll need, carols, fun sing along songs, nice full sound without being too difficult...especially enjoy "Deck the Halls" --ala Mozart, makes me smile every...

    time I play it...songs are what you expect to hear, I mean all the fun notes you hear in the songs on the radio...

    I purchased this music for myself. I wanted to learn some Christmas music this year, that challenged me but didn't take a ton of time to learn. Well, I can sightread all these songs because they are such boring arrangements. I purchased the music online, so I couldn't...

    see all of what I was buying and it sounded like it was challenging but easy to learn, but once I started playing them I realized the mistake I had made. In the first two songs, he write a crescendo on a sustained note. Please tell me how I am supposed to do that on the piano. After that, the music just seemed boring, there were not any interesting chords or harmonies and I lost interest after about three songs. Save yourself the money.

    Dan Coates' late intermediate arrangements of 20 of my Christmas favourites are delightful. I enjoyed playing the book from cover to cover. His colourful harmonies and full rich chords are very satisfying to play. The collection includes technical challenges for all levels of intermediate players,and make excellent sight reading...

    for advanced pianists. It's a book I'm very pleased to have in my Christmas music collection to enjoy year after year.

    This was just what I wanted. I'm 77 years old and needed music that wasn't too hard, but yet challenged me a little. I'm enjoying playing the Dan Coates arrangements in the book, and I've purchased another one for a family member.
