  • August 23, 2008 A Book of Great One Page Pieces

    I have a student working in this book who has been playing about 2-1/2 years. The book is filled with very short compositions from the Baroque Period through the 20th century, but by lesser known composers. It is really categorized as Elementary/Mid-Elementary, and I expect my...

    student to learn them quickly. It also comes with a CD with all of the pieces on it. The pieces are written primarily in the keys of C, G and F, with one more chromatic piece, and a couple in minor keys. It is a nice collection.
