    My daughter loves this suite so much that when she was asked to turn the teachers copy in, she made me order it immediately. It is very pleasant to listen to you child play these lively song during the Christmas season.

    A level three student can handle a couple of those selections. Teacher, chose wisely! And then there'll be new motivation to learn the rest of the book the following holiday season. I often catch parents in a buying mood and recommend that they buy a Nutcracker ballet DVD. And...

    I always point out live performances to take the kids to. The thrill of recognition is so great for them, and then the subsequent "I know how to play that!" is just one of the greatest gratifications the kids can get. Also good for grown-ups.
