    Notes and harmonies are simple and easy to learn. It is a great transitional piece to introduce the student before a more technically challenging classical music. As the cover states, it is an intermediate level piece, not early advanced.

    This is one of those pieces which gives you the best of both worlds. An opportunity to bring expression out in the flowy, beautiful Prelude section. Then you have your fierce, fast and showy Toccata section which can give the chance to display the intensity of the player's side...

    . I highly recommend this piece to broaden and challenge a growing pianist's skill! This is a piece to definitely show off at a recital or an adjudication.
