    I have just started using this series with students in other courses. Wow, what beautiful music compared to most piano courses! This is a traditional middle C approach, but with rich, rewarding music that is not a recycle of stuff you've heard for the last 50 years. The pieces...

    are contemporary in style, but not avant-garde. They invite the student to perform with precise articulation and artistic use of dynamics. Having done so, the student has a beautiful piece to show for the effort. This book and book 1 are very similar. I liked the pieces in book 1A better than the ones in book 1. Skills are intoduced slightly earlier in 1A as well. I will be making greater use of this course in the future.
