    Difficulty Level:
    Early intermediate
  • January 04, 2008 Excellent collection

    This book is a great collection which includes the well-known pieces (114 Minuet in G, 126 Musette in D), as well as some other easy Bach piano solos. The editing is precise, and the shaded text is a huge benefit. The recordings on the CD are very well done...

    , and very helpful to someone studying alone.
