  • August 13, 2016 Two Bad Mistakes in This Edition

    Two Serious Errors to report - - The tempo is wrong. It is supposed to be 108 per Half Note, not Quarter Note. Also, in the first bar of the key change back to B flat on page 5, beats 2,3 and 4 should read, d,f,a,c, NOT b...

    flat, f, a, c. Except for these two egregious errors, it is great! I love the music! I found the correct version of this arrangement in the Leroy Anderson at the Piano, Centennial Edition. I do like the cover art of this flawed edition.

  • January 28, 2012 This arrangement rings the sleigh bells!!!

    This arrangement of Sleigh Ride is probably one of the best on the market.I looked for a great arrangement after hearing Jeffrey Biegel play this on his new CD.."A Steinway Christmas Album."(Archiv Music LLC)arranger: Andrew Gentile. His arrangement is super fantastic and explosive but not in...

    print yet. This will have to due for now. Excellent, you'll love it. Be sure and have a friend play the sleigh bell sticks while you play this ! ! !

    Authentic chird structure with rich harmony as you expect. The entire orchestra is represented. The four note chords in the intro and interspersed throughout can be reduced to make it work for an Intermediate player

  • November 05, 2008 Challenging, but fun

    My experience: I've taken piano lessons for 13 years -- mostly classical studies (when I stopped taking lessons, I had just learned Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu) Comments on Leroy Anderson's Sleighride: It is a fun piece to learn and play. I've been practicing it off and on now...

    for about 2 to 3 weeks and I still don't have it down, but it won't be long... There are alot of tricky fingerings to work out, and there are many hand position changes and key modulations in the piece. Overall: I would not recommend it to a beginner, but someone with several years of experience. With patience and practice, this piece can be a fantastic addition to anyone's repertoire.
