  • December 12, 2012 I love it!

    I got this book a few weeks ago and have had so much fun playing the great Christmas arrangements. I've been playing piano for 10 years and have come to be rather advanced. This book was at the perfect level of difficulty for me because they're hard enough...

    to be beautiful and challenging yet easy enough to master within a few days. Mark Hayes is an amazing arranger. The pieces are interesting and are not so repetitive that they become boring. I especially love the arrangement of "Sleigh Ride". This is an excellent asset to any advanced pianists Christmas collection!

    I love this book! I love 7 of the 10 arrangements and like the other 3. They are all appropriately jazzy and fun to play. Each composition is quite different from the others. "Toyland" is my favorite. I would rate this an 8 on a 10-scale. Most of the...

    difficulty comes from rhythms (swing and lots of ties) and fingering on ornaments and cadenzas. Lots of chords and some fun glissandos. I love having a book of songs that the piano can sing without a singer.

    Sleigh Ride is challenging for small hands. Toyland is lovely. Little Drummer Boy is a nice influence of African rhythms. Let There Be Peace On Earth is a show stopper. Let It Snow and It's the Most Wonderful Time are sheer fun. I'll Be Home for Christmas is...

    a classic. It's Mark Hayes at his usual best.

    Great arrangements - love this book. Every song is a winner especially "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year". The music is just challenging enough to make it interesting but easy enough that a player does not have to practice for days and days to master. I love all...

    of the books in this series.
