  • September 11, 2008 I love these books!!

    I am a Suzuki method piano teacher, and I was fortunate enough to spend a week this summer with Carole Bigler and Valery Lloyd-Watts taking their Mastering the Piano -- More Than A Method classes. These two ladies are extraordinary teachers. A tremendous amount of thought and expertise went into...

    this compilation of repertoire and it shows! It truly does inspire students. I am slowing converting all my piano students to these books because they have so much to offer!
