  • December 19, 2008 Very good book

    I amm 68 and I am just learning to play piano using the Alfred´s Adult All-In-One Course and finishing Level 1. Therefore I have not started to use the Fake Book yet, but with the little musical knowledge that I have I believe that the book is...

    very good. It seems easy to understand. I also believe that it is for an early intermediate level. Sorry for not being able to give a better review but I am just starting to learn and without a teacher.

    Difficulty Level:
  • July 22, 2008 Great songs, but a little difficult

    Great songs, some are a little easier to play and read than others. If you're early intermediate to intermediate definately choose this book for recreational playing or jazz piano lessons.

  • February 14, 2005 I Loved This Book!

    I have this book and I'm entertaining Family and Friends. I'm a beginner on a keyboard but also play on a Baby Grand Piano every chance I get. The choice of songs is wonderful and the arrangements are great for a beginner.
